No sun for me

Hello Everyone,

Definitely no sun for me today, it is coming down, with ice in it no less. I love the rain, but NOT on a Tuesday. It's wash day for 2 clients, arrgh, that means clothes racks, in spaces that you wouldn't house a dog in...oh! well, 6 hours of cleaning and struggling with sheets on a clothes rack, that are only built for knickers and socks, then I'm home, tucked up in my craft space, doing my thing.
Even 'Harry' is pretending to be asleep, no tail wag good morning,he can here the rain, and plans on staying exactly where he is, on his couch, with his new dog.

Have a card to share today for a challenge over at  designed 2 delight  there is a freebie to use for the challenge and Scrapbook sisters  [Summer fun]

Coloured with pencils, added netting as there was netting and starfish on the papers, first time colouring the sky with Bev Rochesters template, I think I over did it, but will keep practising,used inks for the sea, and fabric paint with glitter in it for the seafoam.Shells from stash, and added blings to the flip flops straps.

Thats me, time for my gummies and coat, out into the rain, early start today, which means early finish.

UPDATE: Hot glue gun in the rubbish, finger a lovely shade of purple, red, pink, theres a nice colour combo....and the dumbest question from a medical professional, 'Why did you do that'
Good grief, and we pay these twits.

Have a fabulous day/night and will see you later.

Hi Chrissy, love the card...the sky looks great.
Ouch your poor finger...I've done that too. Thank you for the lovely comments about my daughter's Prom...I may keep a few daisies and butterflies on my car but I must remember that poor old G has to drive it sometimes...he says he's in touch with his feminine side....think he'd have to be don't you...
Hugs Debbie x

Oh Wow!!! how brilliant is this card,every perfect bit,love it! You certainly didn't over do the sky,it's my favourite shade of blue,the kind where the clouds give you rest from the heat but don't bring you rain. Had you thought about entering this weeks challenge at Scrapbook Sisters with it? you can link from my blog if you don't fancy searching. Wishing you a sunny day tomorrow,Julie.x

Ugg, I hit the wrong button and I think that I messed up my comment to you. I am so sorry that you hurt yourself. I feel so bad for you. I do however just love, love your card and the seafoam is just wonderful. I hope that you got to come home and sit on your favorite couch like Harry. :O) Hugs, Lisa
