Hearts and Cherub .... no less

Good afternoon all

Well I thought I would try something different today

There are a few difficult requirements to do on the latest

The Craft Barn challenge 

add the following words 

February brings the rain,
Thaws the frozen lake again

And the challenge is ...........
you must include a heart and a cherub !!!!

So here is mine....

I have been using Sherif Craft Artist 2 to make this project.  I used the
Valentine Daisy Trail digi set

I just love the idea of the rain in the background.

Added a picture of a cherub in the heart and added rain drops to show the rain 
that comes in February. 

Anyway it is my take so far on the challenge. 

Not sure I have a cherub stamp but will have a look to try the challenge again. 

This time I have remembered to add the words.

Printed off and mat and layered onto card stock onto a card blank. 

Hope you like it and would like to enter it for the 
following Challenge 

I look forward to hearing from you in due course. 

Have a great day
