Let it rain


Me again, how you doing today?

It's been a manic week for me.  Work has been mental.  Traffic has been horrendous, so I haven't been getting home until stupid o'clock (and it's only going to get worse with the Olympics just around the corner)... groan!!

Anyway, on with my card today.  Today I've made a tri-fold shutter card.  I'm still not sure about this one.  There seems to be an awful lot of spaces that need filling.  Still, let me know what you think.  I've used Krista Smith's Saturated Canary image 'Let it rain' (thought it was quite apt considering the weather we've been having recently).  She's been coloured with copics.  I added a little glossy accent to the rain drops and her eyes and little glitter to the flowers on her brolly and boots.  The papers are from Papermania Lucy Cromwell.  I used a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen to cut a blank for somewhere to write a message.  The flower is made of bits and bobs, all Wild Orchid and a Martha Stewart branch punch.  I finished it off with a few woodware punched butterflies here and there and some blue crystals.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
  6. (Singin' In The Rain)
  7. (I do live in the UK ya know!)
Before I go I just wanted to show you a picture I took of my daughter and her friend before we went to my niece's engagement party.  My daughter, Emma, is the one on the left.  Don't they look beautiful.  Ok, I'm biased, I know.

Many thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.   xox
