Fun Ways to Use It challenge! I love using odd numbers on cards...they just look better to me. For my odd number, I used 7 cloud like images. The labels 6 always reminds me of a cloud so I used a couple of them for clouds along w/ some cloud punches.
This is also for Beate's Hope You Can Cling To, Rays of Hope. The challenge was to use mostly gray w/ one splash of color.
Maybe I'd better explain my card a bit. This so reminds me of my Grandmother, whom I lost to cancer. While I loved her dearly, she could be "difficult", lol. What made me think of her w/ this greeting was one time she was in town visiting, staying w/ other relatives. When she was still here a couple of days after she was supposed to go home, I asked my uncle what had happened. He said "it's raining". I shrugged. Ok, that matters, why?? "Grandmother can't go home because her broom doesn't work in the rain." I still laugh when I think of that.
So that's my story, and I'm sticking to it, lol. The images are from DRS Designs and I'll have it on my blog in just a bit. Thanks so much for looking! The Write Stuff

Oh my gosh Julie this is precious!!! I am going to go order this. I love how you did the clouds and actually everything about it!!
When my Mom retired they had a party for her and they made her a broom. It had a horn and a rear view mirror.

Your card is so right for your story! What a great memory of your Grandmother. She must've been quite a character. I don't blame her though. If my wings got clipped I'd want to 'clean house' with my broom :)
