Out in the rain and wear your biggest smile

Hiya Everyone and welcome today to my blog.

How's you today? 

The weather has changed and it is really quite cold here today - have had to turn 
up the heating. 

Its the 3rd anniversary of my Step-Fathers passing today
here is a photo 
I took before Terry got really ill with Alzheimer's and 
happier days. 

Well time moves on and things change - I suppose they call that life. 

Back to the now....

Here is my card for today.....

I have used my new stamp from Ryn Designs and stamped the rain drops 
onto one of my paper stash background papers. 

Added an umbrella in the corner mounted onto a coloured white card blank 
that I have coloured blue. Put faux stitching around  and a sentiment. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping by and look forward to 
seeing you again.
