It's Raining Again

How fed up am I with this interminable rain ?  We've endured it for weeks now and I've had enough!    It rained non-stop for two days on Monday/Tuesday, my garden is a quagmire and I can't dry my washing. Sorry, I know it's boring but really, it is supposed to be summer! I should be skipping through sun scorched fields in skimpy garments but instead I'm covered with kagoules and wearing wellies and taking cover indoors. (mostly pubs it has to be said)  OK Rant over

I managed to do some crafting yesterday and made this card for my nephew Eddie who is 11 tomorrow.

I was quite pleased with it as it was one of those 'make it up as you go along cards' so I'm going to enter it in  Stampin For the Weekend's challenge - Show us your Style  (my style being Clean and Simple)

Have been so busy lately that I've hardly had time for chazzin and as for car boots, forget it! - would need a tow truck to get the car out of the field.
Here are a couple of pleasing purchases I made when in Kent the other week though.  


 Men's 100% linen shirt - not cheap at £4.95 but in good condition and washed up beautifully.


Jasper Conran cardi with lovely buttons and detailing- £3 
(colour is more raspberry rather than this tomato shade)

I'll leave you with Supertramp and the tune which has been been playing in my head for days now.  Enjoy what's left of the week.   xxx


  1. You can send the rain our way anytime! We always need it to fill up our water tanks! :)

    I LOVE your card! A fabulous CAS design with such bright, fun colours. Really really cool!

  2. Happy Birthday to Eddie, he'll love that card, it's fab!
    Great buys, Jon would have snapped up that granddad shirt in a shot.
    It is vile, the forecast for tomorrow and Saturday is appalling, perfect for our weekend of camping in a field...bring on the cider!!! x

  3. that pesky rain gets to me too. We had a tropical storm park its butt in the Gulf of Mexico for what seemed like forever, I still feel waterlogged.
    Your clean and simple card is great. I don't do a good job of making CAS but they are my favorites. Your nephew is lucky to have a talented aunt.
    thanks for showing us your style at SFTW.

  4. What a gorgeous card.

    Hugs Riet.xx

  5. Ha, yes that tune has been on my internal jukebox too!
    Lovely card, fab colours, and I LOVE that little cardigan! xxxx

  6. Oh I KNOW Fiona (about the rain). I love your card design with the bright stripes on the textured background. And your chazza buys are great especially that gorgeous linen shirt with the fab colours! Vicky x

  7. Ooh that cardi is gorgeous - any chance of some pics of you wearing it? In the rain perhaps?? Sarah xxx
