I need some sun to peep through the clouds.....

Good morning all hands up everyone who is fed up with this horrible weather...now its not much to ask for is it that its not a kick in the bum away from June and a little bit of sun should be peeping surely...just a little bit...well a lot would be better lol...maybe I have the holiday blues kicking in or maybe its just my tan is fading fast or that I need something to get my teeth into but I felt so flat yesterday and all the plans went out of the window, I made this card then read all afternoon, well I say read what I mean is read a paragraph, nodded off and so on and so on...I need a good shake so any volunteers and don't all rush at once, form an orderly queue please lol...for a change I love how this card turned out, isn't this little Mo's Digital Pencil Fan's Cricket just stunning, shes coloured with distress inks and I hadn't coloured black hair for a while so gave it a go and it worked ok I think...her outfit is paper pieced with some of this gorgeous Basicgrey Marjolaine Maple Walnut Bar paper...lush isn't it...I finished with a stitched ribbon and knot, a bird cage charm and some little daisies I bought from The Works for £1 ages ago, aren't they great and they come on a bunch of 12 I think...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm sure I had another challenge in mind for it too but my piece of paper has gone astray...I'm at a loss what to do today (well except for the self shake lol) so haven't a clue what I'm up to but whatever your up to have a fantastic day

Hi Mina, We have got some sunshine in lovely East Yorkshire today so you can have a little.At last I can get some washing out and dry, the downside is more ironing -that's life I guess. I love your card, she is such a cutie.Beautifully coloured as usual and great papers and embellishments.Keep smiling.Love Debbie x
