It is Raining!!!!!!

Hi there,  I hope you had a lovely week.

I have had a lovely (and bussy) weekend and Friday as is has been WET in Roxby!  After three or four weeks over 40c we had a beautiful overcast day on Saturday, the rain stopped for the market and then every now and then gave us a little light mist after every one packed up and went home.

I would like to share my next card for the Make It Monday design team.  I am starting to experiment a bit more with brighter colours and busier layouts.  I love this Image, it reminds me of when I used to have time to kick back and craft with friends.

In the second photo I am trying to show how I layered their legs and knitting to give the image a bit more dimension.

The card I used is from the Christina Re* Paris Chic Collection, it is a green flocked design over a shimmery cream card, I got the pack as a pressie from my Mum in Law :-) The pink card was also in a gift pack as were the makings for the flower (I am a very lucky girl!) Um... the punch for the sentiment is a Stampin' Up punch and also from my wonderful Mum in law.  (I live in the middle of nowhere so I get a few care packages every now and then - Thanks Mum xx)

The cut out for the image is traced around a Spellbinders Nestabilities die cut shape (the actual shape was too small for the image so traced around it and cut out by hand) - This one was from my stash as were the ribbons!

I have entered this in
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes

Now to the wonderful image and sentiment set, Close Knit Friends..... From our lovely sponsor for the week

They have such cute designs!

Now for my POTW,  with all this lovely weather I couldn't go past Dance in the Rain by Laura Nehring at The Crafty Sister.  Check her out!

How beautiful is this?!

Don't forget to link up your creations at Make It Monday and leave lots of love for others that do too and you could win some awesome images to play with.

Have a great week

Rachael :-)
