Look on the bright side!

Good morning all in Blogland and I hope that the sun is shining for you like it is here - even though it's absolutely freezing!  But it's amazing how much better we feel when we see some sunshine (although it's showing up just how grubby my windows are lol! When you love crafting, life's too short to wash windows!). Thank you for all your kind comments when I'd reported in sick! It's reassuring to know that it's not just me - and most of my girlfriends also join me in a grumble as we're all about the same age, and all experiencing the same joyous 'symptoms'.  But as the sympathy at home usually extends to a silent pause and then "So, what's for tea?" it's good to share a moan now and again lol!

Anyway, on to today's card using Mo Manning's gorgeous digi 'Waiting for rain'

The papers are a mix of MyMindsEye and freebie ones! I've used some coredinations card for matting and layering, sanded back slightly, with some added stitching. I've coloured the image with promarkers

The sentiment stamp is from LOTV. I've used Spellbinders floral oval dies and some East of India ribbon from stash. 
Hope you like it! Right. I'd better get off and do some h****work (not sure that includes cleaning those windows though! Perhaps that's a job that should be 'delegated'!)
Back soon,
