My Time to Craft DT Challenge #288 Umbrellas

'March winds and April showers Bring forth May flowers.' Since it's April, the new challenge at My Time to Craft is Umbrellas Fortunately, I haven't needed an umbrella in a while, as we've had gorgeous sunshine and mild weather for several days now! However, it never does to underestimate the British weather's ability to turn cold and wet in the summer!

I have used an older stamp, 'Winter Wonderland' from Sugar Nellie for a winter birthday card.

She is coloured in Promarkers, and I added Pearl Pen to the falling snow. The papers are Frosty Christmas by Lili of the Valley. There are 3 glittered snowflakes cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes die The gems and stars are from stash.

CHALLENGES I'm entering:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 supplied the wonderful sketch:

Go and see what my teamies have made, and join in the Challenge!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

love Mags B x

P.S I was talking to my best friend who lives in London and she said that Spring has been lovely but January and February were bitterly cold. We're going to be there from 10 Dec to 20th Jan next year. We'll be missing our summer. :-(
