Intermittent showers!

Well we have had some sun this weekend, but finally the April showers seem to have turned up.  Alex and I dodged the showers in the park yesterday, and then decided to embrace the rain meant we had most of the playground to ourselves which was great.  It also didn't stop Alex enjoying an ice cream, although I went for the warmer option of hot chocolate!
Today it is time for another Quirky Crafts challenge and it was my turn to set the challenge, which is wings and clouds - both must be included on your creation.  We have two great sponsors (Bugaboo and Doodle Dragon) this time.  I used ' Scene It - Believe' from Bugaboo to make an altered CD which is going to be a wall hanging for my God daughters bedroom. I masked over the image and then used distress inks to colour the sky. The main image was coloured using promarkers, pearlescent glue for the clouds, gold pen for the stars and sakura stardust for the wings. I edged it with pearlescent gold embossing powder and added flowers, an angel charm and gold notes to give the impression of the angels singing. I am entering this into SSSS 'fly', creative card crew 'clouds', My time to craft 'in the sky', PTW 'Bingo' (ribbon, free, punches), crafty creations 'no squares', Delightful challenges 'round up' and All Sorts 'letter of your name' (Caro - clouds, charm).
That is all from me for now.  Have a fantastic week everyone.
