Brollies at the ready people........i'm on my hols!

Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Many thanks and hugs to you lovely lot for the comments you leave always make me smile!
Anyway, big woohoo and a whoop from me as I am now off work for two weeks, and in typical my holiday style it was cold, wet and miserable this morning - now, I have been reliably informed that warm sunny weather is heading back our way, but either way I will have fun and enjoy this break, so I do liken myself to this wee bear on todays card.
This super cute image is from Crafty Sentiments and it was on magazine freebie cd that came out last year. It is a little treat to colour - have used the promarkers for this, with a dollop of glossy accents to make my raindrops and puddle come to life. The gingham paper is a freebie download from Bev Rochester's blog and the sentiment was added straight onto this - the font is tempus sans. I have used a Martha Stewart border punch and Memory Box fremont crest die. The pearls are from hobby house, the sticky ribbon is from hobbycraft and the brad from my stash.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
crafty sentiments - die cuts and punches
ready-teddy-go challenge - die cuts and punches
aud sentiments - anything but a birthday sentiment
word art wednesday - use an uplifting sentiment

That's about it from me at the mo, off to do some blog browsing now methinks xx
