Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain Easel Card

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you! You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.  This time our theme is "favourite January to April Mini Catalogue" items.  I'm created some cut easel cards featuring the Rain or Shine Suite.  

This suite is so adorable - it's been fun playing with it!  Aren't these cards cute!

First I have Mr Bunny dancing in the rain.

Now check him out dancing under the clouds.

These easel cards are fun to create.  The instructions below are for the Mango Melody card
