Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - Singing in the Rain

Hey Friends! My second post for the day! Don't forget to scroll down to my previous post to check out my tutorial. It's an old tutorial but I transferred it to pdf and uploaded it to Scripd. Anyway, I made it a point this week that I will participate in the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. Every week I think I've told Sankari of Sankari's Sunshine Corner that I'll participate in her challenge but the days go by sooooooooo quickly and by the time I get around to it, it's the next week's challenge!! Arggh, I'm beginning to sound like a broken record. LOL!!

Well, I have to say I'm seriously proud of my self. . .I made a card before the new challenge starts up on Saturday!! Too funny! The truth is. . the only reason I made it on time is because I already had the bear image colored and it fit with this week's cinema challenge.

I wish there were 10 days in a week so I'll have more time to participate in all the fun challenges out there. Who the heck came up with the bright idea of having only 7 days in a week? Ooops, I think it was God who came up with that idea. . .okay, I take it back, 7 days is perfect. LOL!

Okay, then. . . .who the heck came up with the bright idea to make the day only 24 hours long?

Anyway, just playin' around. Just a little info on my card. . .again, it's like a broken record. . I colored the image with my Copic Markers, added a bit of SU Crystal Effects on the rain and part of Mr. Gene the Bear's raincoat and some stickles on the flowers.

Oh, I actually did something different today. . .I used my sewing machine and created the zig-zag stitches. . .see, I can actually do something different to my card.

Oh by the way, this week's challenge is to create a card with the movie "Singing in the Rain" in mind; hence, the bear in the rain and his name is Gene the Bear.

Actually his name is not Gene. The bear image is a bear created by DJ Inkers but I named him Gene just for this card.

Anyway, stop by Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog site. . .there's a new challenge on Saturday but you still have time to play in this week's challenge.

Hope y'all have a fabulous Wednesday.

Maria you crack me up!! I complety agree about there not being enough hours in the day or days in the week to get all the challenges I want done! So frustrating!

I love this card though!!! The coloring is fantastic and the crystal effects on the rain is perfect!! Such a nice, nice touch!! Great layout as well! And I have to say Gene for your bear is a very fitting name! He looks like a Gene!
