Rain, Rain, Go Away!!

Hiya folks.

Wish the rain would go away. We had a lovely day yesterday, and I wanted to finish off in the garden today, but we are having showers, so that's put that out of the window - bah!!

Oh well, I'll just have to craft instead. Shame huh? The weather brings me onto my card for today, which has been made for a few challenges that are weather related. Firstly at Raise the Bar the theme is 'April Showers' - well we know all about those here in North East Scotland!! And at Sophisticats the theme is 'Raining Cats and Dogs'. I didn't use any animal images for my card, hope it still counts? I also followed a sketch for the layout, from Friday Sketchers.

I have used a lovely kit from The Creative Cottage for this card, named 'Come Rain or Shine' which comes with papers, ribbons, and images too. I used some lovely flowery wellies from the kit here, along with some of the papers and a ribbon. The only other thing I did was make the flowers from spare bits out of my bits box, and added some inky edges too. The image has been layered a bit with some foam pads.

Right, off to do yet more DT stuff, then I may be able to do some sketching later. . .

Hi Teri,
I love the colours you have used on this card. It is beautifully done.
We seem to have your sun today but I'm too tired to enjoy it. Just don't feel well at all.
