'Water' is the theme of this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin'.  This time we're sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who generously gave the DT some cute images to play with. To make my card I used the cute Don't rain on my parade image. I coloured this little froggie with my copics and paper pieced the umbrella...added some glossy accents to the rain drops. The sentiment is an old wooden stamp that I've had for yonks...good advice though! Just lately there's been plenty of puddles to stomp in around here ...which will delight my youngest granddaughter ...expected for her first 'sleepover' (please please let it be SLEEPover!) here tonight! She is a huge Peppa Pig fan (like most 2 year olds) and loves to jump in muddy puddles! Wonder where I've put my wellies!
We'd love to have you join us this week with your water themed makes...doesn't have to be rain...any water will do ...don't forget to include some stamping! Click here to visit the challenge blog to see some fabulous inspiration from my teamies and to add your own beautiful creations.
Have a great weekend

Oh My! How time flies..Your very first sleep over, bet she doesn't want to go home tomorrow..
Our two lads used to sleep over at the same time, hard work, but, fun.

Fabulous card, love it, another image I may have to get (for a up and coming challenge)
Used to love watching Pepper Pig with my eldest Grandson, that and Charlie and Lola, youngest was never really into them, seemed to go straight into Horrid Henry.
