Good morning all
Well I hope it is where you are its a lovely warm day here.
Today is challenge day at My time to Craft and for some reason best known to herself Shell chose the theme - Its raining cats and dogs! Now this challenge was set weeks ago - did she have a premonition or just wish it on us! Either way its definitely true of last week -here in the frozen north, we nearly drowned we had so much rain! Thunder, lightening, water running down the roads like a river, trains off, roads closed - I still can't believe how much chaos it caused and by the weekend it was just as if it never happened. Since then we've has a few showers but on the whole it's been ok and really quite warm - weird weather, I think this must be summer!
Anyway on this this weeks challenge, I was looking for a digi for this challenge and had won some from Di's digidownloads on Digidownloads challenge. While I was claiming my prize I asked Di if she had any "rainy" digis and sure enough she came up with the goods! - a few days later this cute little digi appeared in her shop - so thanks Di - you're a star and this is just the sort of thing I had in mind - I love Di's digis with all the cute little characters!
I made this card as a thankyou for my friend Christine. It was our grandson's christening on Sunday and we had the party afterwards at our house -60 people to feed a tall order and it took me nearly all the week before to tidy the house! It was a lovely day, we really enjoyed it. Anyway Christine just did sooo much to help on the day - she was a real star, along with her husband Steven who has a butchers business -he baked us lots of delicious pies and quiches - our very bestest friends - thank you x
