When life gives you a rainy day.....

I was delighted to be invited to be a Guest Designer on the City Crafter Challenge blog.  It's a colour challenge this week, to use blue, green and a splash of red.  Here is the photo for inspiration.....

..... and here is my card.

To make the background, I used a Memory Box die - 'A Little Rain' three times on white card and attached blue paper behind.  The image is by Little Claire, 'Rainy Days'. It's stamped with a Memento ink pad and coloured using Promarkers.  I added Glossy Accents to the boots and puddles to make them stand out.  The image and sentiment are die cut using Memory Box Stitched Rectangles.  I actually made the bottom card first, using a paler green for the matting, but decided to make another card, changing the layout. 

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:


  1. Very pretty! Very sweet! Thanks for being our guest this week at CCCB!

  2. Both cards are lovely, I think the layout of the first is more balanced though. I love that sentiment, I've not seen it before. It could make us all feel better about this miserable excuse for a summer that we're having!

    1. I prefer the top one too, Jane. I made the bottom one first, but wasn't sure about the layout, so made a second one and changed the position of the image and sentiment. xx

  3. Oh your card is delightful!! Thanks so much for Guesting with us this week at CCCB!!

  4. Great card, Liz. Love how you interpreted the challenge photo. I agree with Jane, the sentiment is terrific. ta ta for now.

  5. What a lovely little card. Wonderful sentiment and raindrops to go along with the gorgeous little image. You did a great take on the color scheme too.

  6. Congrats Liz! Saw your GT card over at City Crafters, came to check it out. I love the sentiment and the image is so cute!

  7. Congrats on guest designing! I love City Crafter, and it's great to see your work there.

  8. Beautifully balanced design for this card. Love it.

    Hope the Husband enjoys his semi-retirement (I read the post below) and that he doesn't interrupt your crafting too much!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  9. I love this card, the image is so sweet and the sentiment just perfect. I do like the raindrop die as well, and the glossy red boots.
