Simon Says Stamp 'Seasonal Simon'

Hi all :-) How is your weekend going ? hope all is well :-) I am posting this quickly then have to go and make apple pie ,,,,,:-)

I made this card to join in with the Splitcoast Stampers 'Hope You Can Cling To' event. This challenge was chosen by my old ABC Christmas Challenge teamie, Jennifer Skull, who you may be aware is currently fighting a battle with breast cancer. 

Jennifer wants us to 'Put Our Brave Boots On' and this is what I came up with :-)


I used this super cute 'Seasonal Simon',, isn't he adorable :-)
When there is any moderate to heavy rain in Malta the road outside Amy's flat turns into a river and she has to be brave and put her wellies on to cross it :-) CLICK HERE if you would like to see  video footage of it taken just outside the flat :-) Obviously she wouldn't cross if it was that bad,,, far too dangerous :-)

I made the background using a cloud mask and a copic air brush, I then stamped little rain drops over the top. 


thanks for looking :-) If you would like to join in with the Hope You Can Cling To challenges click on the blinkie ;-)  It is for such a good cause and there are loads of fabulous prizes to be won :-)
