April showers

Good morning, hope you're all safe and well, keeping busy and not going bonkers! All good here, family safe and well -we're keeping in touch on line and by phone so I know that I still have 4 granddaughters and  their 2 sets of parents surviving being at home together :) girls are all being very good so far! 
I can always find plenty to do myself but must admit I'm finding it hard to concentrate on anything for very long so tending to start on something but not finish it, still I can always go back to things, like me they're not going anywhere!

This week's challenge at Fab'n' Funky begins today, I'm hosting this week and picked the theme of April Showers- or anything weather related is acceptable. 
I used a sweet Stamping Bella stamp, which I've coloured with copics, dots added to her Mac with a white gel pen.  That cloud stencil was used again to make the background! Sentiment stamp came with the image. I don't have an umbrella die so I made a tiny umbrella from a cocktail stick and folded paper. 
Thanks for visiting, hope you feel like playing along this week.

Couldn’t have put it better myself except probably bonkers to start with. Hardest but is working out which day it is. The dentist rang and cancelled The Doc’s appointment today and have optimistically given him a new appointment for the beginning of July when everything will be back to normal!. Not holding my breath on that one. Keep safe. Hugs
