Rainy Days

Still waiting for summer here in London. That is the problem with the UK, we don’t tend to get those glorious sSummers that many of our European brothers and sisters get – you lucky folks. 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
Kim

    A perfect card for the weather Kim. I love your little girl in her green flowery wellies. I could have done with those here today.
    Lets all keep everything crossed for a hot August!
