splish splash...

Good morning everyone, I hope your weather is better than we have...we had all four seasons yesterday even snow and hail...nice to see Spring has arrived lol, I think the weather was the inspiration for my card today...I had a semi successful crafting day, one of those two step forwards one step back kinda days I got a few things done but not as many as I wanted, I even had a really early night last night 10pm would you believe that's unknown for me to go to bed before 1am...I was shattered by 8pm and could have gone to bed then, so cup of chamomile tea in hand of I popped with the best of intentions to watch a movie in bed I saw about 10 min's of it lol...right now onto my card for today inspired by our wonderful Spring weather, I used this amazing Singin' in the Rain image from Mo's Digital Pencil, isn't she beautiful, that umbrella and raincoat just cried out to be paper pieced didn't they, I know I'm a bit of a Mo freak but this one has just the perfect little face doesn't it...I coloured the rest of her with distress inks...the fabulous papers I think are from a DCWV paper pad, I was just attracted to the colours, they suit her don't you think...the letters are from the same pad I think, well they match anyway...I finished the card with a load of different ribbons and a bow made with 15mm Organza Ribbon LIGHT PINK from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, this ribbon has a lovely stiff feel to it, perfect for bows and holds its shape fantastically...the fabulous sketch is from Digital Tuesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the My Mums Craft shop challenge and Papertake Weekly challenge...I'm off to give myself a shake and a shower because my glasses fell off again yesterday, at least it wasn't down the toilet this time but just into my lunch, so I'm off to the opticians to get them tightened and reshaped...whatever your up to have a brilliant one
