Rainy Day's!!!

 The weather here has been wet and windy for nearly all of April, so this card with the rain is quite appropriate.  This is a digital image I have had for quite a while (not sure where I got it).  I have paper pieced the umbrella and coloured the rest with copics.  Its really hard to see and even harder to photograph well but I have highlighted the raindrops with a glittery gel pen, which looks effective in real life!!
I have made this card for the new challenge over at the Lily Pad "Simon Says Rainy Day Challenge" and the Simon Says Blog "Anything goes"


Sorry I couldn't resist adding a few more wedding shots,  here are the girls again Francesca and Rachel.


The beautiful bride Chelsie with her brother Michael.



And finally Francesca and Rachel with Rachel's brothers Lloyd and Matt.  If you are wondering where Tristan is, he has had a really exciting week being a session musician for his friend Greg Holden.  They have just finished a British tour and their last gig was London on the day of the wedding.

Hope I haven't bored you too much :0)

Thank you for all your comments, they are really appreciated.

P.S.  I have just noticed that I now have 198 followers, when I reach 200 I will have a little giveaway, so watch this space (Or blog.lol.)!!!!!!!!

I love that "splash" of red color and the glittery rain - I almost thought you used some metallic thread! Beautiful wedding pictures, looks like your rain held off at least for the pictures.
