Rain Or Shine You Are A Friend Of Mine

Hi bloggers!  I selected a piece of Actic blue card as my background.  I cut the Cottage Shaped card die and cut it out of milk card. I used the Flagstone stencil on top of the Cottage die cut and inked through it with Antique Linen Distress ink.  I cut the Cottage again out of chestnut card and nipped away the roof, door, windows and steps and glued them onto the cottage.  I cut four flowerboxes from the House Accessories set out of the chestnut card and added greenery and flowers to them then glued them under the four windows.  I made two topiaries and added them to the sides of the front door along with a dog and a cat. I added a green wreath to the front door too. I used the rainbow from the You Are My Sunshine die set and cut it in a variety of pastel colours then assorted them on the rainbow die.  I added it in the top corner with a sun die from the Rain Or Shine die set cut from straw card.  I cut the rain or shine sentiment from the same set in black and glued it below the sun.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue.
This is such an adorable piece of inspiration with the additional pets to add the 'love' this is still on my gift list although at the moment I can't find any farmers markets to accommodate me and my cards which is so upsetting.
I'm not sure if it's Google that's changed or what but the way I'm posting my message is totally different to how it was a week or so ago. Changes, changes!!
Love n hugs to all that visit xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh how I love the Cottage and house die sets, I have both, but I didn't know there was a stencil for the front brickwork, I will have to investigate that, if I can't find it I will make my own. Beautiful sample, love all the different pieces that all go together, yes your onto a winner with this one and the wonderful sentiment die set.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

I lost my job few months back and there was no way to get income for my family, things was so tough and I couldn't get anything for my children, not until a met a recommendation on a page writing how Mr Bernie Wilfred helped a lady in getting a huge amount of profit every 6 working days on trading with his management on the cryptocurrency Market, to be honest I never believe it but I took the risk to take a loan of $1000. and I contacted him unbelievable and I was so happy I earn $12,500 in 6 working days, the most joy is that I can now take care of my family I don't know how to appreciate your good work Mr. Bernie Doran God will continue to bless you for being a life saver I have no way to appreciate you than to tell people about your good services.
