Watercan Marci

Hi everyone, today I'm here with another GDT card for La La Land and this weeks theme is Fun In The Sun. I made this card on Friday afternoon and left it to dry as I did the school run. When I left the house it was a bit sunny and a bit cloudy, and as I was running late I drove to the school When I got out of the car I could hear the rumble of thunder and could see the dark grey clouds slowly, but surely making their way over towards me. Literally as the door opened to let my daughters class out the heavens opened and I only had a thin cardie for protection. We ran to the car (which I was now grateful I came in) and the water was dripping off my hair and I was soaked, I had to take everything off. I then photographed my Fun In The Sun card, smiling at the irony (after I'd put dry clothes on though, lol).

I've coloured Watercan Marci with distress reinkers, and I've used chalks for the cloud background. I don't have much of a garden but I do like growing tomatoes, carrots, strawberries and flowers so in the summer (although not this summer in the UK, the amount of rain we've had) I potter round watering them, but at least they've just lifted the hosepipe ban!

I've used Seaside Chic papers from Raspberry Road, the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz distress tool and I've then machine sewn the edges using top stitch thread from The Ribbon Girl, the silk ribbon is also from there. I'm currently in a big bow phase, as you've probably noticed. The inside has been decorated to coordinate with the front.

Pop over to La La Land to have a look at the stunning cards the DT have created, and check back again on Friday for Inspiration Friday, you will not be disappointed.
