Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning Folks.....I've so enjoyed the glorious weather we have been having .....and since reseeding the lawn....I've had to turn on the sprinkler twice a day as we have had no rain for 5 or 6 days....yesterday was absolutely beautiful... but spoke too soon didn't I....woke up this morning to that dreaded sound and yes it is absolutely chucking it down...which fits in rather nicely with this week's challenge on Daring Cardmakers...the challenge this week has been set by my namesake Kathy and is........

Papers: Pink Petticoat...Big Dots
Image: Pink Petticoat....Lola Rose Bubbly
Flowers: Prima
Papermania: Glitter Adhesive Gems
Sentiment: Penny Black Enjoy Clear Stamp Set
And the titile of this challenge.....brings back wonderful memories of Marti Pellow and WET WET WET one of my all time favourite bands...still play their CD's in the car occasionally but then he foolishly went down the alcohol and drugs route.....such a waste.
Well you don't get much wetter than in the bath....and a nice warm bath with scented oils surrounded by scented candles must be considered to be one of life's little luxuries.....especially appreciated after a long day in the garden....unless you are taking "The Budster" for his morning walk......I'll be OK.....only my waterproofs will be wet....but he will be one WET WET WET.....and probably muddy dog.....and why does he always have to wait until he has just stepped into the house to shake himself......walls that look like speckled brown eggs and that wonderful aroma (NOT) of wet dog.......well off to get suited and booted and catch up with you all later
Hugs Kath xxxxxx

Hope “The Budster”(and you for that matter) didn’t get too wet on his morning walk!

I think your card is fab Kath: the colours are great and I can almost smell those scented oils!
