April Showers ,,,,,

Hi all ,,, my goodness these Tuesdays soon swing by don’t they !! It is already time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)


I love this House MouseGentle Rain’ image,, sooo cute :-) I love his expression ,, like my dog Jessie when she has to go out for a wee in the rain ,,,’do I have to’ ,,,, poor thing eh !! :-)

I coloured with copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI, the papers are Jillibean Soup from a Homemade Bean pack and I inked the edges with Wild Honey DI. I added twine, a lovely rose from a Londonerry pack and I made the ribbon slider with a Simple Buckles Memory Box die, the fab vintage tape is from The Ribbon Girl and I added loads of star dust stickles and robins nest dew drops to finish :-)

We are sponsored by Whiff Of Joy so a fab prize on offer this week ! :-)

This is so clever - it really did make me think of showers! :)

His sweet little expression under that daffodil really made me smile - kind of like me when I have to walk the dogs and its teeming it down! LOL :)

Lovely, warm shades of yellow, and that single flower adds a perfect touch too.
