Hello Everyone...

On the lookout for severe weather in the next few days in my part of the are going to be a bit rough...probably cancelled,and very high wind warnings with rain...oh! Joy!...I still have to drive in it all day to get to work to see 'My Ladies'...I'll be a giant frizz mop by Thursday.

Speaking of weather [pure coincidence] my card today features a little cutie playing in the rain..

Meet  PATSY APRIL SHOWERS 4...from STAMPFAIRY Mum didn't half tell me off for doing this...but I did it all the same and loved it...still do with the G/kids.

Pasty all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and her little brolly paper pieced with MME papers "A Mothers Love"...

There's a  bit closer showing the glossy accents in the water and the sparkle on the edge of her coat...

The side view...MB grey clouds and cut a few circles and scallops with my scraps for a bit of interest.

Going to enter into these challenges...

Alphabet challenge     [P.. for  paper piecing]

Cut it Up Challenge  [Going in Circles]

So that's me to pick up the boys from school shortly, get their tea organised at their place.. then back to work, to tuck in my Ladies.. home again and have my eldest Son for tea as we watch 'The Amazing Race' together on a Tuesday..roast chicken tonight...yum!!..

Thanks for stopping by... will see you tomorrow.
