Rain again


This image is so typical of the Summer we have been having here in the UK. Even the days which start lovely like yesterday nearly always end in rain, yes like yesterday. Fine today so far though.

I have been admiring the set of Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamps for some time and am so pleased I now have them, purchased from Simon Says. I don't know why but I love images with umbrellas and the sentiment is brilliant. I have used Bo Bunny Weekend Market papers, TH distressing tool, lots of DI Vintage Photo and MB umbrella and landscape dies with kraft card. My vintage cards sold so well at the weekend that I need to restock, which is great as I love making this style of card.
