Walking in the rain..

..with the one I love.

Is a line from a Barry White / Love Unlimited song and it's one of my faves.

The stamp I used to make the card in the main photo today reminds me of this song :) Apt I thing, as this is an Engagement card for friends of ours. The stamp is by Stamping Bella - Emily and Ryan under the umbrella.

I love this stamp, it's so cute and I like the fact that they are hidden under the large umbrella - which is strange as I detest umbrellas!

The stamp is actually quite tricky to colour - quite a lot of detail in the coat/dress and the flowers, but it is totally worth it..I am currently using it to make a whole raft of Anniversary cards for September. It would appear that nearly everyone we know got married in September.

The backing paper was a little bargain that I got from Marshalls, it was a pack of decorative scraps by K&Co - I sent half to JT :)

As I am so pleased with this card, I thought I would enter it into the same Colour Me Creative Marker Challenge #75 that JT entered - her card is awesome btw.
The theme is 'Anything Goes' as long as you use alcohol-based markers..I used Promarkers -
Umbrella - Vanilla
Coat / Dress / Flowers / Shoes - Pink Mittens, Plum, Orchid and Hot Pink
Skintone - Oatmeal
Shirt - Blue Denim
Trousers - Warm Grey 3
Shoes - Ice Grey 4
Foliage / Grass - Moss

I hope the happy couple love the card as much as I do..I now have to get on and make them a new home card too!


p.s 3 more sleeps and my Ma will be here...
