It was Choccy’s turn to choose an image for us to work with and it is a stamp pack called Fun In The Rain by Lil Diva Stamps. You get the image of the little boy in his wellies and a rainbow too. I chose to use the boy as it is raining so much in the UK at the moment it seemed very appropriate. We had the wettest April on record, then a drought in a lot of the country and then so much rain the drought was lifted….crazy crazy weather!

Anyhoo the image was of course coloured in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I used a Nestabilities die to cut the image and a red mat from scrap cardstock. I added a second layer for the cloud mounted on 3d foam.

Using a sketch from Crafting Life’s Pieces for the layout I added some lovely new papers from the Family Ties First Edition pad by Dovecraft. It has lots of fairly bright primary colours to match my image. Just because the weather is dreary it doesn’t mean my card has to be J

I added one of my most favourite ribbons with the lace trim to it and my absolute new favourite Cheery Lynn die. I snipped it to fit the card better and added some Prima flowers and small buttons. Finally I added some bunting cut from scraps and hanging from some Baker’s Twine with a handwritten message ‘Rain Rain Go Away’ a sentiment I am sure many of you will agree with.
