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