While visiting my friend Crystal Irwin (Crystal's Crafty Creations) blog this morning, I commented on her cute creation for a challenge I have never played and one that she happens to be on the design team for.  WELL, wanting to show her a little extra support ... I thought I'd play along and I'm so glad I did!!

The challenge blog is called  Going Grey with Scrap Creations (GGSC6) where you use Basic Grey designer paper along with whatever the theme is for the day.  Today's theme is:  APRIL SHOWERS!  How appropriate since it is raining here in N.E. Ohio today!!  LOL!!  Here is what I came up with:

How perfect is this adorable *Wink *Wink Ink image called "RAINY DAY" and he is still available as a "FREEBIE"  ... go grab yours today ... time is running out!! The Basic Grey designer paper I chose to use is June Bug.  Here are the details:
Stamps:  *Wink *Wink Ink digi 
Papers:  Basic Grey June Bug, Whisper White, Old Olive
Accessories:  Gold Pilot Marker, Prismacolor Markers, Crystal Effects, Bazzill Red Paper Flower, Prima Yellow Flower, Darice Green Brad, Creative Memories corner rounder

I just love adding Crystal Effects to this little guys slicker, hat & boots ... and I even added it to the water (though it's hard to see in the photo).  Easy but fun ... just the way I like it!  

Why not take the time and "SUPPORT A FRIEND TODAY!!"   Whether it be with a phone call, a greeting card or playing in their challenge of choice ... I'm sure it will make them smile!
