Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining

Good morning!

Having waded through a mountain of laundry ... restocked the fridge and replenished the cat food supplies ... I am ready for another holiday Lol!

Today I am hosting the challenge at City Crafter and I have given you a sort of double challenge

Someone once reminded me when I was going through some tough times that  "Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining"... Now I always try to look for that silver lining and this card has been in my head for a long time


So I am asking that you use the colours shown 


And include a Cloud or Clouds on your project ...


I have no doubt that you can once again Wow us with your beautiful creations ...

Here's my card ... the silver lining is that beautiful flowers grow from the rainstorms


I cut clouds using the PTI cloud die in both silver card, DP and card covered in blue striped Washi tape


The sentiment is computer generated and the stitching is done with silver thread too ... The pink stripe is also Washi tape


The raindrops are made using Glossy Accents and the pretty 'pink' dandelions are a digital stamp from Hero Arts ... I altered the colour in photoshop


I'm sending this to someone I know has been going through a tough time too ...

We have Bligu Guest Designing for us this week ... She is such a talented lady and won our challenge in week 149 ... Please take a minute to visit her blog ... you will love her creations

Don't forget to visit CCCB to see what the other designers have come up with and this week we are offering a GD spot to the winner too ...

I'll be back tomorrow ...

Take care
