Under my Umbrella

or rather, the theme that Cute Card Thursday have set for the current challenge is 'can't stop the rain' and our sponsor is Saturated Canary.

And, I am late posting - 5 days late!

But better late than never .. ..?

My life has become very stressful again at the moment with taking Mum to various hospital visits, preparing her room for the plasterer who arrived this morning, and coming out in horrid large wheel like spots - everywhere!  I'm told it's probably stress - no kidding! So, this will be my last post for a while as I try to juggle my other priorities - my candy is still running and I will draw it on 7 May as planned, but any new projects from me before then will be unlikely, not least because my stuff is packed away in a cupboard behind all Mum's bedroom stuff.

So here's my card.  The image is a stamp from Papermania, coloured with my Copic pens then simply matted and mounted with red card and a plaid paper.  Finishing paper bits and pieces came with a magazine and the card is kept free of flowery embellishment as it's for a fella!

I've no idea if there are any challenges it might fit and at the moment I don't have time to look .. .. the sun is shining in Cornwall and it's time to get on with the garden and the diy outside that we didn't get done before the winter set in .. .. never a dull moment or a moment of peace just at the moment!

Enjoy! and see you all later .. ..
