Here's a card for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge 166 with the theme of WISH.

I wish it would stop raining.... having said that the sun is out now but this morning the showers were very heavy!! Not got a lot of time this week so had a quick look in my bit box and found some ready made backgrounds. Tim Holtz's Brolly man and the WISH quote from the Stuff to Say set were stamped onto gloss card that had been sprayed with glimmer mists. Chose that as it looks like rain!! The background is distress inks overstamped with The Artistic Stamper's flourish.

I've linked this to The Artistic Stampers challenge too which this month has the theme of MEN. As it was sunny when I first saw this challenge I thought I'd turn brolly man into parasol man with a nice straw hat and bright clothes. However I think having the die cut would make that a bit easier.... one day I'll have a go!

Thanks for looking!!.
