Here Comes The Sun!

Well it's got to be shining somewhere ..... hasn't it?!  What a day!  I woke up in the early hours to the wind battering the end of the house, and it has just got worse ever since.  The bank holiday week is traditionally the time for the Suffolk Show, a two day event that celebrates everything wonderful about this glorious county, and is normally attended by 90,000-100,000 people over the two days.  Because of the extra holiday for the Jubilee, the show dates were moved from their usual Wednesday and Thursday to Thursday and Friday.  Sadly, because of the high winds, and the danger to people and animals, the show coordinators took the decision this morning to abandon.  The first time ever in 181 shows.  It is such a shame, these shows are years in the planning and most folk around here look forward to it as a really good family day out.

Anyhoo, to bring a little bit of sunshine to an otherwise dreadful day I made a card to enter into the HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE who have the theme of Here Comes The Sun.

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image  House Mouse Designs Spring - Dip Set
Papers  First Editions (I managed to forget the name of the pad between craft room and here!)
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment  Hero Arts

I'd also like to sneak this in to
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Summer Time
Paper Crafting Journey - Colour It Up

Once again, I am way behiind in commenting but I have been visiting lots of blogs.  Too much to see, too little time!  So, even if I haven't left you a message there is every chance that I have been drooling over your wonderful creations.  Sorry about that - need a tissue?

Hugs, Sxx

Hi there,
well, it's maybe not quite as windy as in your place, but we have lots of rain over here and hardly any sunshine, so maybe your nice card will help to actually convince the sun to come back out! would be nice....
greetings from germany!

Anyone could forget that storms exist looking at this card. It is so bright and sunshiny. The colors and patterns go so well together. Sorry about the inclement weather. 'Tis a bummer when the weather goes awry on plans, but does prove that Nature's a mother. ;-)
