Rainy Days

Still waiting for summer here in London. That is the problem with the UK, we don't tend to get those glorious Summers that many of our European brothers and sisters get - you lucky folk. Hey ho, August will be fantastic I'm sure!

But Rain is good for the garden right? So a card to match the weather! This lovely is Rainy Day Emma from Whimsy Kids over at Quixotic Paperie, I've coloured her with Promarkers and Copics (have you noticed that the price of Copics has gone up?). I love this fabulous gingham button and lovely crocheted lace. The papers are the My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow paper stack.

Whilst I'm here have you seen that Elaine from Quixotic Paperie is sponsoring this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge? There is £10 gift voucher up for grabs - Wahoo!

Have a lovely Sunny day
