Dancin' in the rain........

Well hello everyone apologies for non blogging, and non cards, but back to normal from now on... went away last week on a card weekend, and was sooo shattered and all cardied out, then had some small commissions to get out of the way....

So back to today for the Papertake weekley challenge:

here is the brief we were given.....

After last weeks appalling weather here in the UK, we've decided to use this theme for this weeks challenge! So anything associated with the weather - whatever your interpretation! Under the weather, fun in the sun? Wind? Rain? Let's see what you can come up with lol!

Well what I envisaged as a quite straight forward design, literally turned into a nightmare... I started with a sketch by Maria Bell simple enough, I then decided to paper piece it all, thats when the nightmare began... ewwww!!!! It real looks like it's peeing down for poor Hanna, poor thing.. I stamped and paper pieced then went and flamin dropped the ink pad right one top of it hence the down pour of rain to hide the blobs of Anyhows hope ya likey...

Don't forget to checkout what the other design team members have made they are stunning you can see them here!!

Items used: Hanna stamps and sentiments
Artic Frog papers
prima flowers and brad
Bazzil card stock
