April Showers

I've just got back from a week at my Mum's, and oh how I have been missing my crafting! I left several scheduled posts so you, my friends, won't have missed me as much as I've missed you!

On Easter Monday we took the train in to Liverpool to see the Terracotta Warriors exhibition and oh my, the rain! In fact first thing in the morning there was snow, which turned to very heavy rain when we were waiting at the station for the train. Luckily it dried up later, in typical April Showers style, so when we got back here and this month's Papercraft Essentials was waiting for me, complete with rain/pond/puddle themes stamps, stencil and die set, I had to play straight away.

The stencil and the boot stamp are from the magazine set, and the umbrella and sentiment from two Clearly Besotted sets.

I am sharing this with

Great card Jane! Lucky you seeing the Terracotta Warriors - on my bucket list. LOVE this card, someone else you know has been using that set - call by the Playground on Sunday to see just who - not me, yet!

Fabulous card, Jane, love all the elements, they go so well together. We were lucky enough to see the Terracotta Warriors in China a few years ago. I managed to persuade my DH that China would be a good place to go to celebrate out Ruby Wedding Anniversary..... and I could tick another thing off my bucket list. xx

You always create the cutest cards, Jane! I love how you placed the raindrops and your umbrella is darling! Love those darling boots, too! Thank you for making me smile, and thanks so much for playing along with us at Addicted to CAS!!!

Great card Jane. Aren’t the Warriors fantastic? We saw them, quite by chance, when we were in Malta a few years ago.

Brilliant! I like the way you've combined the set from the magazine with another to create a fab card, Jane. I agree that the set is one of the most useful given away with a magazine seen recently and I'm having fun making cards with it. I can also see where I could use it on scrapbook layouts too so double value for me. Elizabeth xx
