Waiting for Rain

Not a case of waiting for rain its seems the UK has abundance of it but that is what this cute little darling is called. I decided I needed a fresh image to help Mr Mojo to return he did but it seems only for this card. You can get her here.
I paper pieced her rainwear which is always great fun to do.
I felt she needed to have something to look out which is why I used the memory box clouds.
 The swirl is a Simon Says Stamps Exclusive and the flowers are punches. A little bit of lace and ribbon to finish.
Well the house is now a craft free zone and my craftroom is totally out of action but don't worry still have a few cards to show and not forget My Favourite Five Christmas Cards on Christmas Eve which I do hope you can join in with me.


Had a lovely evening with Verity and Chris who invited the family together so we would all meet before their wedding in May and what an amazing spread she made for us. But best of all was the ham she used the Gino's recipe and it was amazing, had to print off the recipe not when I shall give it a try or I might just hand a bit of Gammon to Verity and get her to cook it for me!
