Under my umbrella!

Good morning! I think there's a certain irony to today's card - featuring raindrops and an umbrella when for once it's actually quite a nice bright morning (complete with washing on the line!). Oh well - I can never seem to get the timings right!
Anyway, after seeing some of these digi images on some of my fellow bloggers creations I fell in love and crossed a line.... and made my first purchase of digi stamps! I know, I know, a bit behind the times but I do love the whole process of rubber stamping complete with getting inky, etc.! But these images were just so lovely that I couldn't resist.

This digi stamp is from SassyCheryl and is called Charlie's umbrella - and hasn't she got the cutest cheekiest face! And I'm just loving those freckles.....! And I just had to make her a redhead! 

I've coloured her with promarkers and prisma pencils. The backing papers are from K&Co with some matting & layering with coredinations card and ribbon from my endless stash!  The sentiment stamp is from LOTV and the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
Another of SassyCheryl's images will be appearing later this week for a DT project - so do remember to pop back and have a look! (One that my daughter picked!)
Hope your day goes smoothly - without umbrellas and raindrops! 
Back soon, Kim x
