When Life Brings Rain...

Hello hello hello! 
Gosh, just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful comments you all left on my Shabby Chic project. I really appreciated that so much.
Okay, on with the show for Make It Monday. :)

First time I've ever had the backside of an image to color and this little cutie was a bit tricky for me, but I've tried to make it look like she's heading outside. Hind sight being what it is and all, it escapes me why I didn't just put her in front of a door..duh.  Anyway, the sentiment I made on my PC and that still seems quite  fitting for A Little Girl With Umbrella from our terrific and NEW sponsor Milk N Coffee.  Our randomly chosen winner for this new linky party happening over at Make It Monday will win 3 digi's of their choice.  Hope you enjoy the card.
Now for my....
Absolutely striking combination of colors, LOOVE that Raspberry Ripple with the contrasting black and the cool white. A terrific job of layering and all the fun designs on the DP. Beautiful card Sandy and thank you so much for sharing it with us this week!

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a good week.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Me xx

Love your card so cute with the little spots for drops of rain and the sentiment is lovely, beautiful coloring. I really need to do some stitching on some of my cards. Thanks so much for picking my card for your POTW so exciting and I am honoured that you picked it and liked it, thank you for the lovely comments on my blog..

Great minds, right? I love this little girl...in fact, I love the whole store! Your POTW is fabulous...just brilliantly designed! (I think I know too many Brits, I seem very fond of the word "brilliant" lately!)

Love this cute image on the card, Lisa. Your coloring is always great and the layers are beautiful. :)

Sue said...

Hello Q,
She is adorable, and coloured in beautifully as always, the colour palette of green and yellow is a classic and always relates a warmth.
You are doing far better than me at the moment in designing your projects, I need to get myself back on track quickly, perhaps I'm going through a transition period, that would be a nice thought!

Hi Lisa

She is soooo adorable isn't she?! Your colouring as always is awesome and I love the window scene

Your stitching makes me want to dust off my machine but that thought quickly vanishes when I think of my frustration trying to get it work!

I nearly chose the same card for my POTW, it's been a popular choice this week.

Michelle :o)

Snaps on the POTW, it is gorgeous,
