Under My Um-ber-ella, Ella, Ella...

Sunday, 24 November 2013

I don't even really like Rhianna (I'm more into my rock music!), but it's a fitting title!

Hello everyone!

I hope you're all well?  I had a lovely end to the week when my little sister got all dressed up to go to a formal with her boyfriend and the whole family turned up to wave them off! lol!  Here she is looking lovely!

And here's the Awwww moment when her and Ben first saw each other all dolled up!

Don't they look well together?!

And I thought I'd add this one in too - this is what happens when you get a few children to pose together!

And in all the excitement I totally forgot to do my post for the Alphabet Challenge Blog - it never even crossed my mind yesterday either - head like a sieve!

So our challenge for this fortnight is...

U for Use An Umbrella!

So I did this...

The image is "Emily Rainy Day" by Lacy Sunshine and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E49,47,44,43. Clothes & Umbrella; E09,07,04.G24,21,20.W9,7,5.E42,41,40. Sky; BG01,000,0000. Ground; E44,31,G24,21,20,

The papers I have used are from the J'adore collection by First Edition.  I used the following dies; Spellbinders petite ovals lg and labels 10, Dienamics Umbrella.  I also used a Stampin' Up! scallop border punch.  The sentiment reading "Feeling Under The Weather?" was computer generated using the font Lainie Day.  The pearls and gems are from my stash.

The inside has the same layout and papers as the front and I've added a sentiment from Waltzing Mouse's Fancy Phrases.

So that's my card, I hope you can join us over at the Alphabet Challenge Blog - go and see what the rest of the DT have made, they're fab!
