Count your Rainbows and more exciting news

Firstly a huge welcome to my new followers, Wow, I am amazed to have reached almost 1500 followers and thank you so much. I feel some candy will be offered if I reach that magic number..

After yesterday's cute card time for something more distressed.  I don't know why but I love images with umbrellas. I'm not very fond of rain, and goodness knows we have had enough of that lately so my liking for these images seems odd.
Image - Tim Holtz
Papers - Bo Bunny Weekend Market
Sentiement - Inkadinkadoo
Dies - Memory Box clouds and umbrella
Other - hessian, Core'dinations, Viva pearl drops

So onto my exciting news for today. I received a message a little while ago from Paula Holifield asking me if I would join the DT for a new monthly challenge starting on 1 April. The challenge will run from her blog rather than her giving away a monthly candy. You can make whatever you like as long as it fits the theme and there are some great sponsors lined up. So click on her name in this post and that will take you to her blog where you can read all about it. Look forward to you playing along with us.

Wow Marianne!! Congrats on your big number of followers! That is fantastic! Your card featuring the umbrella man is so cute. I love the color palette of your card. I love that Bo Bunny paper with all of the suitcases. It's such a great paper and love all of the colors! Your background is such a neat color, too. Love the bit of burlap behind your umbrella man. The little die cut clouds really go well with your sentiment, too. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
