AHH!!...SPRING SHOWERS


Hello Everyone....

Monday today where I live and  piddling down..my hair is growing by the minute into a ball of frizz..and the farmers are all out dancing in their paddocks as they are so happy to see this much needed rain.

Now this little poppet I'm here to show obviously loves the rain too...

Patsy April Showers 4  is from the fabulous Stampfairy 



If I got caught doing this as a child I would have got a thick ear...but Patsy does not look like she has a care in the world splashing in those puddles...

She was coloured with Faber Castell pencils and her little coat paper pieced in these gorgeous tiny floral papers from Jennifers Printables  they are free and are designed for dollhouse wallpaper...so the print is really small...just right for paper piecing.



Her bow and umbrella..boots and gloves are  paper pieced too with light card stock called "Tarragon"..

Added lots of memory box umbrella dies...





Added glossy accents to one of the umbrella which was not successful as it went wrinkly...but the puddles glossed up well..

Going to enter into these challenges...

Hope you have a fabulous week and will see you tomorrow.

Ah, Chrissy what a shame you weren't allowed to jump in puddles as a littl'un! As my youngest brother once said, caught in the act of jumping in a huge puddle(in his slippers!) 'Well, what are they for then?' -he wasn't being cheeky, he was truly puzzled! (He was about 3 at the time!) Hope you make up for it now, no one can stop you jumping in as many puddles as you want!
Love the card, it made me smile, it's raining here too so I'm off to find my wellies!

Hi Chrissy, Love this card, so cute and love the pretty papers. Tried to go to Jennifers Papers from your blog, but came up as page not found. Just to make you feel better, here in the UK today, it's not just raining, it is hammering down. I got soaked 3 times this morning! Hugs, Carol S.xx

As you know I have changed the name of my blog and for you to continue to follow me you need to unfollow and then follow again, sorry about being such a pain, and I do hope you continue to stay with me.

Hi Chrissy, I just love this card. She is so cute in her little rain gear with her flowered umbrellas. I love using glossy accents on things like that. It just gives everything so much more depth and look to them. I hope you and Harry are doing well. I am so happy to be getting time back to play on my blog and also have a few minutes to catch up with my friend around the world. I always tend to forget that if we are headed toward summer you are going towards the white side of things. lol.... Glad you are enjoying though. Hope your ladies are being good for you. I can't tell you enough times how much I admire what you do. It takes a very special kind of person to do it. I love my older customers that come in and I could talk to them for hours about how they ended up here and what they have done in their lives, but I know myself and I know that if it came to having to take care of an older person that I wasn't related to or had a few special needs I really don't think I'd be that good at it. So my friend I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope to talk to you tomorrow. Hugs to Harry and you both, Lisa
