Crafty Calender Challenge #2 - Weather

Ok, so it is the first friday in the month and that means it is time for another Crafty Calender Challenge where this month we would like you to use the theme ' Weather ' Well, it seems like it has rained here an awful lot recently and so I opted to go for rain, hoping that it might go away, at least at 8.45am and 3.15pm - you know what I mean ? how us Mums always manage to catch the rain at school drop off and pick up times ?
back to my the challenge - this month we are being sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts so be sure to enter as there is an awesome prize to be won - a gift voucher to spend in the craft shop whoop, whoop.

I used the lovely Miss Anya from the rain,snow,shine set for my card and have coloured her with ............ you guessed it - Copic markers lol ! do I ever use anything else ? and added some ' Art' glitter. I have cropped her with my nesties and the distressed all the edges with peeled paint distress inks.
The papers I have used are DCWV Spring glitter stack, and at the side are my faithful QK swirls, I have added some pearls on a string ( pearls are the optional extra on the challenge this month ) and then topped it all off with some flowers from my stash. the sentiment is an epoxy one that I have had for an age.

So, with all this gloomy weather about why not spend some time crafting and show us what you can do ? look forward to seeing your creations again this month, last months were fab, you are all so talented out there.
Have a great friday,
Claire xx
