April Showers!

Morning everyone, hope you have not all melted away with this heatwave, phew! 
It's time for a new challenge at


and this weeks theme is

"Spots & Stripes"

For my take on the theme I have used this Pink Gem Designs fabulous freebie "April Showers"


I coloured him using Copics. I paper pieced his hat and umbrella using some Echo Park papers - Sweet Day. I cut out the wording using my Cameo and then added some faux stitching and a button from my stash to finish!

So now just pop over to A Gem Of A Challenge and join in the fun!

I would like to enter this into


Thanks for looking!
