Early showers.

Gosh , I wish the weather would be consistant ! Here in Adelaide it is all over the place .My clothes drawers have Winter and Summer clothes in them  ..I  cant seem to put cold weather gear away just yet!
Hello craft buddies , welcome to my hobby room .
It is time for Make it Monday post .
And here is the card I made for today .

This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Emma who owns Pollycrafts, the home of fun, original hand drawn images for use in your crafting projects!

The winner gets to choose 5 single digis of their choice!

Emma sent an image for me to play with

  This image  is called " Nice Weather for Ducks" I coloured with copics . A mixture of Kindy Glitz and SU crystal effects on the umbrella made it look plastic and wet. ..I hope . Do you think?
And the same  for the puddle with a touch of red  with  the blender tip gave a reflection of the red  gumboots .
Do you think that I got it?
Can't wait to see what the other DT ladies are sharing this week , can you ?

  9. Shirley-Anne,
    So glad you wrote such a great post and included all the little extras...especially loved that you put a dab of red in the water as a reflection of the boots. That's a brilliant idea! :) Your umbrella certainly looks like it will hold up under the ill conditions of wet and rainy weather and your little girl with the rubber ducky is precious. Love your card and your pick of the week!
    Hope it warms up for you soon. I'll gladly take the cold, I'm sick of the heat! :)

  13. Your card is the sweetest, Shirley-Anne, love the umbrella - how clever to have glitter to show the effect of rain. And glitter on the puddle to show reflection of the boots... super. Lovely image.

  16. Hi Mum

    Wow, great card! You really are getting the hang of the Copics now. The umbrella looks amazing and the reflection of the boots in the water a great touch.

    VEry pretty card you have chosen as your pick of the week too.

    Michelle :o)

  17. Hi..Popping from MIM..Very cute image and like the colourful dots background

  18. Hi Shirley-ann, thanks for popping over to say Hi. I love what you did with this little lady, her umbrella down to the puddle at her feet! Your details are fabulous! I just love MIM!

  19. great image Shirley!

    I love how you coloured her, and the effect of the brolli!!!

  20. I am sure I commented on this post earlier this week but I can't see it on here, so I'll say again how much I like that sparkley umbrella and puddle. It is a fun card and I love the way you have put it all together.
    I had a marathon card making session over the past few days and on my latest post you will find one, and then twenty-three more, Christmas cards, which are more than enough to take my tally to the magical target of fifty. (I have actually made another fifty as well but I wasn't linking them to you for the first few months! I hope they inspire someone else to have a go. Kate x

  21. Totally sparklicious Shirley her little umbrella. We didn't need one in Glasgow today...just a hat, scarf and was super cold brrr!! xx

  22. Your card is beautiful. I think the glitter really does make it look slick and wet. The green really pops out at you. I'm working on making it around to all of the DT's sites, but haven't gotten there yet. I've also stopped in and commented on a few others. Karen and I worked together over at Digi Doodles earlier in the year, so I know you really have a winner there. Hugs, dj1952
