April showers

Hello folks I hope you are enjoying/have enjoyed a good Saturday wherever you are. We have had one or two spits and spots of rain but the sky is still blue so can't complain. 

Anyway here is a perfectly apt card to share with you


The delightful little maid is Maggie and I just love her - she is such a jolly little character. She was coloured with Promarkers to match the papers from Pebbles, which (apart from pretty florals and checks) conveniently had a sheet that says "rain, rain go away come again another day". I used another page to paper piece her umbrella and stamped the sentiment onto a die cut cloud...as you do!!

Some challenges to play along

Without Words - Under my umbrella
Crafty Catz #274 - Two or more patterned papers
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
The Sugar Bowl #123 - Anything Goes
 ( if it doesn't fit the brief please feel free to delete me!!)

The house is quiet so I'm going to have a play in my work room.

Thank you for your visit and your continued support, your comments make my day xx
