Without the Rain…


Today I wanted to share a card that I hope will not jinx the nice weather we have been having.  I am off work now for over a week and I’m looking forward to being able to enjoy the sunshine.

I call it ‘Without the Rain…’

I chose to use my favourite colour combo of all time, aqua and lilac.  I don’t use it that often really and I don’t know why as these colours make me smile.  To me they are happy hues! J  In fact whilst putting the whole thing together I started singing ‘The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow’ but after the dogs started howling I thought I’d better stop!

The image is of course Gorjuss and I coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers.  The papers are from my stash and I used Tattered Lace corners to provide a frame.  The gate is a Spellbinder Die D-Lite as is the cluster of flowers.

I am a bit bow mad so having found some matching satin ribbon I just had to use it.  It would have been rude not too. 

I needed an appropriate sentiment but couldn’t find one.  So I had to make one up and print it from my computer.  It is a phrase my mum often quotes at me when I moan about the weather. Don’t look too closely but I drew the cloud myself (must get a die for this type of thing I’m embarrassing myself with my D.I.Y. malarkey) and added some teardrop jewels for rain.

At least my cloud has a silver (& glittery) lining!

So there you go.  A happy card about rain.  Go figure!

See ya!

Smiling always (I’m off work for a week)!
