Colouring up a Storm

Contrary to popular belief, the weather has not been balmy and summery throughout the whole of the UK, and whilst we did hit the highs of 23C on Friday, it plummeted back down to 14C by Saturday. Followed by fairly continual rain. So, what do I do when I can't work on my tan? I colour :)

I have made a few cards over the weekend, all slightly random and haven't a clue who they will end up going to, but today's card does have a home to go to. My niece turns 5 in a week or so, so this little lady will be winging her way over to Ireland, where hopefully it won't rain quite so much. Hmmm, why is it called the Emerald Isle again?

The image is called "Coriander" and is by Sweet November Stamps, and she's been coloured in with Promarkers, and has some heavy handed application of glitter on her wings. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley, and my circle wasn't quite big enough....

  8. Lovely card. She a real wistful look on her face, real cute.
    It is called the Emerald Isle, yes because of the grass which is so green because of all the rain we get. lol So I would guess that this card is winging from one rainy area to another rainy area. :(
