April Showers

We've had all sorts of weather this weekend ... cold, rain, gales and even some sunshine!  Great weather for getting the washing dried on the line, downside of course is the dreaded ironing LOL

Anyway, just a quickie post - I like to do some of my cross stitch on a Sunday eve.  I'm at the boring outlining bit at the minute, and there's lots of it to do!

Image is a Little Suzys Zoo stamp that I was lucky enough to win on Joanna Sheen's blog a few weeks ago - coloured with pencils.  Dienamics scallop border die.

Hi Lynne what a cute duck smiling at the rain. Well I guess that he's use to the rain after telling us of your weekend. I now what you mean about the rain my husband is from southern Ireland and we were there one summer and I could count the fine days on my hand. This is a sweet card and I love your pretty design papers and embellishments. Great card and thanks so much for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
