Under the weather?

Have you seen all the lovely Saturated Canary digis around in blogland? There are some gorgeous images, so I bought a few last week, and had to have this very sassy girl enjoying the rain with her umbrella rolled up. I printed her out twice, once onto pattern paper, and paper pieced the umbrella. I added some clear acrylic splashes to the raindrops. The sentiment is by MFT, and the base card and candi is from Craftwork Cards 

Coloured with Promarkers:
Skin blush and soft peach
Skirt and hood blossom, pink carnation, pastel pink
jacket soft lime, lime and primrose
scarf saffron and vanilla
hair cocoa, cinnamon, tan and ivory
I have a springtime cold, so feeling under the weather myself. Why is it as soon as the sun comes out, I start sniffling, after making it all through the winter without so much as a sniff........

If you have a spare five minutes for a browse, can I encourage you to pop over HERE see all the challenge entries for this months recycled challenge? Click on the photos and you will be taken to the blogs. You will be blown away, such an imaginative use of stuff, you won't believe it. The challenge is open until the 9th April, and so far, only eleven entries this month, perhaps I made it too difficult, but do cut up that old dishcloth, rescue that bubble wrap, look out the garden string and use them onto a card to join in the fun, and be in with a chance of winning a Promarker special edition stamp set.

    I'm so bad about doing challenges. I see them and think I'm going to do it and then I never get them done. Maybe this time I will.
