In the pink in the rain

Hooray, I'm so happy as I've got my laptop back. I can't believe how fast it is after using the netbook for almost 4 weeks. The 17.5" screen seems huge too. It's been great having the netbook to use but blogging has been a struggle which is why I haven't been able to visit and comment as much as usual. It usually took me about one hour to post and link one card! Oh I have missed using Photoshop for my pics too.

This is one of my very first set of Anya stamps I bought last year and I haven't used her for quite a while. This set of rain, snow and sun is still one of my favourites. I've never coloured her in pink before but here she is looking pretty in pink and of course she is a great image to use with an umbrella charm. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers but am too late to enter, never mind, as it was a great sketch to use.
Challenges:
Let's Ink it up Fave stamp and charm
Oldie but a goodie Pink and girly
Creative Card Crew Bloomin' marvellous
Crafty Sentiments Border punch (I used MS doily punch)
Stamp, scrap and doodle Saturdays Stitching (mine's doodled round the image)
