Inspired By All The Little Things #52

It's April showers time (oh, did we have a downpour today!) so I've picked a very apropo photo as the inspiration for Inspired By All the Little Things this week.  I am the hostess for this week's challenge, and I have invited my Ai Design teammate Renee Matarese to be my Guest Designer!  Renee does such amazing, unique cards, always thinking outside the box, and she has a real flair for masculine cards, too!  Here is this week's photo that we worked from:
 Back in my clothing designer days, I lived in New York for a few years - so I loved this photo, with her glam raincoat & boots, and the rainy NY skyline behind her.  My inclination was to do something with a bit of a chic flavour to it... but when I really looked at the photo, I got kind of fixated on the taxi behind her!  I knew that I had this great taxi-printed paper, and decided to do something a little more fun & lighthearted.  Plus, my son graduated from University this week and has headed off to Europe to travel, and I felt like making more of a motivational card.  So here's what I came up with:

I've made the mad-dash through Midtown NY in the rain a few times myself, Karen! Never looking as chic as this marvelous girl! LOve your taxis, and the sentiment is perfect for your boy! xx
