Angel Showers

Hello and welcome. Hope you are enjoying your day.
It's been a very hot day today and now it's raining! We've had a change come through and I think the temps are going to be a lot lower for the rest of the week too. I've got the front door open trying to cool the house down. It's an old stone and brick house and once it warms up, it takes a while to cool down again!
My friend, Fran and I went off to craft this morning with Shirley and had an enjoyable time making up the 3 cards she had come up for us. There were four of us today as one of the older ladies has broken a vertabrae in her back and another friend couldn't come either.
Fran and I stopped at a little cafe and had some lunch and then headed up to a craft store so Fran could pick up a couple of things she had ordered. I had a small house mouse stamp to pick up too. So I am sure he will be featuring on a card in the near future!
Our son rang to let us know where he and our new DIL are staying. It sounds like they are having an interesting time as they travel down the East Coast of Australia. They are in Byron Bay today.
Well enough chatter and on to sharing my card,
I've used SU Daffodil Yellow as the card base and then a layer of SU Tempting Turquoise and the DP is from p.i.g.g.y tales "it's raining collection" called "morning" I didn't look at that before I used it, but it's very appropriately named for my image.
I've coloured the image with Copic Markers and also a couple of Spectrum noir markers. The image is from Digi Darla and was printed onto white card and cut out using a Nestie Die. I coloured the edge with a pale blue Copic Marker. I stamped this cute little cloud from Kaisercraft - a clear set called "Fine & Sunny", with SU Basic Grey and added a sentiment from SU Teeny Tiny Sentiments which was inked with a blue Marvy Marker. I decorated the inside to match and used a Penny Black Sentiment called "...every day", it was also inked with the Marvy Marker.
I would like to enter this into the following:
