April Showers

I know we need the rain but do we have to have cold as well. It's so cold wet and grey here, could be worse though, I've just watched the news and Scotland has got heavy snow. Friends of ours where up by Elgin last week, they where enjoying highs of 23, now it's lows of -3. It's no wonder we Brits are always talking about the weather!
Still aching from Thursday,shopping in Chester yesterday was exhausting,the shops where too hot and packed ,but I did get some bargain clothes buys at Marks and Spencer's.

My card features the lovely rain drops we all welcome,the gentle drops and then the sun comes out.
The image is an oldie, a crafters companion stamp set called "happy days" by Jayne Nestorenko. I've coloured with promarkers and the pretty paper was a mag free gift by Sally Moret. The sentiment is from a scrapbook sheet ,life is good by echo park. The flower brad ,the hobby house and the sticky ribbon strips are from hobby craft.

Challenges entered:

Mojo Monday: followed the sketch above
oldie but a goodie: April showers
passion for promarkers: whatever the weather

A very pretty card - such a sweet image and your 'sky' bckground is perfect.
The blackberries were easy - that's why I did quite a few. Never managed to perfect to tulips though. Must get all the paints out and have another go now I can craft I linked my blogs so it was easier for me to flit from one to another - I didn't know it would come up in your readers list though.
