Roses, rainbows & little piggy

Good evening friends,
I have had a very busy and productive day. Workshop prep. to finish off for a pewter class tomorrow, DT card, samples for nextweek's workshop and yes got a lot done today.

 I have a card to show that I made last week but just never got to post here.

First though a bit about our weather. We have been having very strange weather with heavy winds and in some places large hailstorms. We have been very lucky to escape the severe weather and as a result also the rain. So while we have lots of noise going on around us not much in the way of water for the garden. This afternoon we really thought our luck had run out. The sky was quite dark and we just waited in anticipation, but again it went all the way round. We did get a few minutes of quite heavy rain, but when hubby called me to quickly come and look....there was the most beautiful rainbow.

 As soon as the rain stopped he went to take a photo of our Iceberg rose bush, which is so beautiful, even after a being drenched by the rain and what was left of the rainbow.

It was just such an incredible sight, the whole rainbow was visible with the most beautiful depth of colour, while it was poring down with rain.
OK...back to business. This is the card I made for the CDAC challenge no 21. The image was from Doodle Pantry. I used the sketch from 365 Cards, day 228. Coloured with watercolour pencils. DP from pieces in my stash and the generated.
Entering the following challenges:
365 Cards...Day 228...sketch
On Stitch at a time...Use a digi
The Crafty Pad...Use an animal
Fussy and Fancy#74...Anything goes
Wishing everyone a very good week, see you back here soon and take care.
Love, Ursula
