Rain .....

.... again!!  My posts yesterday were up early in the day and I had hoped that the weather would improve - you know, actually start to resemble SUMMER!!!!  But, no.  Yesterday was miserable - it poured pretty well all day, and it looks like it's going to much the same today.  But we didn't let that stop us having a great day out.  Kathryn had a rehearsal for her show and while she was there, Mum and I went shopping.  We had such fun!!!

And our plans for today include attending craft class - so at least we'll be out of the rain :)  I've been asked to make a card for a wedding, so I'm going to rough out some sketches and make that later today, when I get back to my stash. 

Before I head out - I've got another birthday card to share with you.  It's  one of the coffee set that I made for my friend.  She wanted a card featuring coffee as her nephew has a coffee cafe, which is very popular. I showed three of the set yesterday as part of the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz, but this one doesn't have any WMS - so it has a post all of its own!!

This time I decided to feature the latte glass - it's such an elegant design and a joy to colour!  The wonky rectangles are just right to give a slightly less formal feel. 

Stamps: Impression Obsession - Smell the Coffee; Hobby Art - Happy Birthday
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog
Promarkers:  Blue Pearl, China Blue, Cornflower, Ice Grey1
Spellbinders: Reverse Wonky Rectangles (S4-307) #4 & 5
Accessories: Card from stash

And this is the card that my friend selected for her nephew.  She said that the colours went with his shop - so it was just right!  My mum really liked this one too, so I'll probably make another one for her to take home with her when she goes. 

And that's all for now - I'm off to have my breakfast - a nice bowl of cereal and a large cup of hot coffee!!! :)

Hope you all have a super fun day - despite the damp, dull and grey weather!  See you later.

I love that coffee cup - it has a touch of the Alice in Wonderland about it. Stopped raining here now I'm back at work - typical!
