Umbrella Man and Rainbow Flowers

Hi all,

Another Monday has come around and it's time for a new Crafty Cardmakers challenge.

Our hostess this fortnight is Tracey and her theme is "April Showers Bring May Flowers".  She would like to see a project which "includes an image of something rain related and is embellished with at least 2 flowers".

I've made a tag featuring Mr Umbrella Man and a rainbow of flowers ...

TH Umbrella Man is stamped with archival black and clear embossed. 
Rain splodges stamp is from Stampin Up French Foliage, silver embossed.
Puddles made with a versamark pen, silver embossed.
I then inked over the tag with various DI's.
Script stamp is Andy Skinner.
Quote is by Dolly Parton - Ha, bet her feet never get wet!

Our sponsors for this challenge are 
who are donating a $10 gift voucher

My tag also fits the current challenge over at Fashionable Stamping, which is "Sentimental".

Hope you can join us this time over at Crafty Cardmakers.

Thanks for popping in,
See you all soon,

Suze xx

Brilliant tag Suze, *I love the gentle gradient of the colour in the background and the little diamonds are fab. It made me smile too :D
Thank you my friend for all your supportive comments on my blog, I can't believe how kind everyone has been! I shall be more relaxed and enjoy fewer posts, good sensible advice!
Have fun and thanks again, hugs Gay x
