Photo Inspiration at Sweet Stampin'

reflections - kids - rain - water:

This week at Sweet Stampin' we have a Photo Inspiration Challenge for you....this lovely picture brings back fun memories for me of when my children were small! Dressing them up in their 'wet gear' on a chilly rainy day and letting them run wild in the huge puddles in our local park. We got some strange looks from passers by as they'd be soaking wet (on the outside!) and covered in mud, but once the splash suits and wellies were off they'd be clean (ish) and dry , back in the warm car ready to go home. We had such fun...they loved a wet day in the park. After all that's what puddles are for! 

Anyway, here's my card
I'm not very pleased with how it's photographed...the yellow background card is a much nicer colour IRL but his is the best I could get!  The little girl stamp is Whipper Snapper and the raindrops stamp is from a collection of rubber background stamps -Designs by Ryn.
Thanks for visiting, please stop by the Challenge Blog to see what my lovely teamies have made and we'd love to have you join the fun this week, just remember to include some stamping in your creation!
Have a fabulous weekend

Hi Chris,
such a very goegeous card, and a super design.
That image is sure cute, and love your stamped raindrops.
I have a Inkylicious raindrop stamp and am not sure how to make it pop like yours.
Lots of crafty love. jenny L.
