Looks a bit like Rain~

Hello Girls,

A big Happy Mother's Day to you all, hope you enjoyed it.
My lovely daughter bought me a "skin" for my Miche handbag (in case you don't know, these handbags are fantastic and you buy different skins that are magnetic and fit onto the bag, genius idea and my latest one is brown and cream, lovely.
My son bought me the next best thing to "A Micro Pig, (which is what I wanted!) He bought me a wicker plant pot for the garden in the shape of a pig!! It was full of lovely flowers. LOL It is gorgeous, I did laugh when he made a pig noise when he gave it me!!

I have managed to have a bit of a crafty afternoon. I have been doing more Scrapbooking, but just before tea managed to make this little card.
I was very unsure of the colours when I first made it, but it has grown on me a bit, and I like the sketch set by Totally Gorgeous.

I have used the Lovely Sugar Nellie Heather rubber stamp, (It's ages since she has been out the box!)
Papers are MME Stella Rose "Gertie", these are adorable a really good mix of different colours. I have also used some Craftwork Cards card candy and the flower is by them too.
Not sure who makes these sentiments, but I bought them for my Scrapbooking (came in handy for this card tho') This one is by Longfellow and says "Into every life a little rain must fall", very true!
The lace punch edge is a MS and I used a Nestie scalloped oval.

I am entering this card into:

Totally Gorjuss--Sketch
Crafty Calender--Flowers and Showers
Crafty Catz--April Showers
Craft your Days Away--Spots & Stripes
One Stop--Spots and Dots
Raise the Bar--April Showers
Sentimental Sunday--Lets Get Wet

Hi Deb,

Thank you for that lovely comment you left me earlier, Mum was really pleased with my card.
Glad you had a nice Mother's Day, the gifts from your children sound fab altho' I've never heard of a Miche handbag.
As for your card, it's very pretty. Think I have said before you have a great eye for colour, and this card is no exception. Love the sentiment too. x
