Loving the sunshine.....

despite an obsession about rain from some people. Come on guys, don't you remember all that time it was cold? I do, and I don't want it back!!

OK, if we must  - RAIN
Seriously, I was browsing the challenges to see if there was anything that inspired me. First I looked at Out of a Hat Creations where the current theme is 'Let it Rain' - per-lease girls don't wish that on us!! Then I stopped by another favourite challenge blog, Artful Times where their theme is 'Come Rain or Shine' - what is it with all this rain talk?
Finally I stopped by ATCs with Attitude, thinking that I might be able to manage an ATC (well you do have to take it easy in this heat) and their challenge # 44 'More than one Fold' gave me an idea.

Here's my entry to all 3 challenges: Sort of covering all bases I feel!


 
An explosion of summery yumminess inside.
Much better!!








I paper pieced the little umbrella girl (a Debbie Moore stamp) on the atc and added an exploding mechanism inside similar to the tag I made a few weeks ago. I think that certainly gives it more than one fold. Lots of coloured punched flowers and voila. That's probably me for this week, far too warm in my craft room to have the pc on for long so I'm signing off.

And my 'C' keeps sticking which is very tiresome - could be the bit of magnum that fell on the key board lol.

I think you nailed it, rain and shine and a fold =). And that with the heat I hear you've been having in the UK.
Love your bright flowers, they look so happy.

Thanks for joining us at Artful Times Cindy. Love your rainy cover - think it is brilliant!
An explanation - when these themes are set so that the DT can get ahead (in case of being away at the time etc) we have no idea what the weather is going to be like. Come on Cindy, how many wet summers have we had? So in anticipation of covering all events I put 'rain or shine' and look, we got wall to wall sunshine. Perhaps I should do it again next year.
Like you I enjoy the sunshine but those sleepless nights!!!
Loads of Love
