Fishing and Snow (and lots of rain)

Well after all our lovely dry weather I reckon we got all our missing rain in one dump this afternoon!  We'd a mad thunder storm and when you thought the rain couldn't get any heavier the tap turned on another bit! Unfortunately there's been lots of flooding, the fire brigade were at the houses at the bottom of our row trying to pump the water away.

So it definately wasn't an outdoorsy type of day, and with nothing to do I've been card making ....
This first one uses an oldie from High Hopes, I really love all their old stamps and am lucky to have quite a few :)
Coloured with watercolour pencils; clear gloss added to the fish and the reel.  Blue stars from stash.  Lawn Fawn cloud die.

I've been slacking with my Christmas cards, my promise to make a few every month has been long forgotten ;)
I've used good old Snowy for this one, inspired by Cornelia's lovely card over at Muse Christmas.
Coloured with watercolour pencils.  I've used this lovely white sparkly card for my Paper Smooches snowflakes.  Sparkle also added to his pompom (I used to LOVE making these when I was a kid!)

Our view this afternoon ...!

Wow! That rain looks fearsome!!! Love your cards. That funny little fisherman looks happy to be heading for the lake (or stream) for a day of angling. And I always love the PB Snowy image. He just makes me happy. Hope you're able to dry out soon and get outside again. :)

We've had that kind of afternoon on many days this summer. Just seems to be a rainy season this year. But the best thing to do is stay inside and craft!

Both your cards are adorable, but I'm here to comment on the Christmas one. I love your snowman's fuzzy woolen garments and the gorgeous hue of the red strip at the bottom.

Thank you for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week!

Oh my, look at that rain! My daughter in Balbriggan in Co Dublin sent a video of the rain they had on Saturday, it sounds like yours was just as torrential! What a change from the heatwave!

Tow more fab cards, the High Hopes fisherman is so cute, and Snowy looks very smart in his red hat and scarf!

Take care!

love Mags B x
