Autumn Showers

Good morning all and hope that your week has been going well? I can't believe it's Thursday already, I seem to have been busy and rushing round all week so far - but not quite sure what I've achieved...! I seem to have been doing a lot of ferrying about (Kim's Cabs!) and catering (Kim's Cafe open 24/7) and clearing up ready for decorating (Kim'sCleaningServices!) - all in between going to work of the paid variety! Talk about multi-tasking! So sorry if I've been behind on the commenting but will try to get around to everyone over the next day or so. And a big hello to my new followers - it's lovely of you to join me!

Anyway, on to today's card!

When I saw this little girl, all ready for the rain, in Mo's Digis I couldn't resist. I just thought she looked so sweet. That's the right attitude towards the wet weather - just get your raincoat and wellies on and go and jump in a few puddles! 

I've coloured her with promarkers and spectrum noir pens, and the cloudy sky was done with chalks. 
The backing papers are from First Edition 'Summer Breeze'. I've added some flowers made with a Marianne die, with pearl centres and a border made with Tonic border punch. The sentiments are from my invaluable (and very well used!) Whimsy ticket stamps with ticket die. 
Hope you like it! 
Back tomorrow with some new challenges from CraftyCatz and Totally Papercrafts
