Sweet Meadow

Morning folks....RAIN...RAIN and more RAIN....is it time to get building the Ark.  I'm convinced I'm right about this weather thing...a pattern seems to be emerging...Mr Sunshine has gone part-time and just turning up when it suits him...and at the moment that's not a lot.  I wonder if he would be willing to share his flexi work rota with me so I can mark the calendar and plan my days....crafty stuff when it's chucking it down and "out and about" when he decides to put his hat on again.  I'm sure we would all be happy to settle for 3 days of sun in a week...better than none at all.  Oh for the good old days..those long hot summers when you were a child...running around all day in shorts..T-shirts and sandals...definitely no socks required...the winter duds were all packed away at the beginning of June and didn't see the light of day again until the end of September and I can't remember ever owning a raincoat.....was it really so idyllic or is it just the old memory playing tricks on me.
But enough waffling from me about that much discussed topic...THE WEATHER...it's time to share some of the cards I've made with the Sweet Meadow Project of the Month Kit from Craftwork Cards.....choc a bloc with lots of yummy goodies...you can check it out HERE...
could this be a new trend...upside down Card Candi




So has Mr Sunshine turned up for work today or is it going to be another "chucking it down" kind of a day...can't hear any pitter pattering on the window but I'm off to stick my head out the door before I decide on today's apparel.  Almost caught up with the crafty list....just a few bits and bobs to add to my class kits for Simply Create on Saturday...and then I'm footloose and fancy free for 2 days. Catch up with you all tomorrow for more Sweet Meadow cards and a sneaky peek...remember to pop over and check out today's give-away at the Craftwork Cards Blog

  2. Gorgeous cards today, Kath! We've had a ton of rain also and I am so tired of it! Before ya know it, Summer will be a distant memory and we'll have the white stuff falling again. Hope you and I both see the sun again soon. . .and for longer than a day or two! Hugs!

  30. Goodness - these colours are great fun. The second card is my favourite & I love the idea of upside down Candi - they look rather like saucers!
    Changeable I think is the name of the weather game.
