Come Rain or shine your a friend of mine

YAY!!!!!!! its Monday and we have a New challenge at Incy Wincy and the theme is FRIENDS!

I love all my Friends and wish I had MORE hours in a day to spend time with them!
I am GUILTY for spreading myself to thin! (NOTE to myself) TRY harder to be a good friend.
SO on that note with the theme being Friends I have made my card
the image is from one of our sponsors
and is called Looks Like Rain Xandra
while we are talking about the sponsors we are lucky to have 2

so we also have the fabulous 

For my card I decided to have a play with some paper piecing and the papers are from the Holly Jolly Christmas Echo Park collection too! how fun is that! I have used my sewing machine for a little extra texture.

I have also used a little of the Wild Rose Studio Annabelle's Meadow pack, Lace my Mum kindly gave me and made large faux candy, the image is coloured with distress inks and I have created the clouds by blending and the rain drops with a silver sakura pen
the Sentiment I made on my PC which reads - Rain or Shine your a friend of mine, hugs Samantha 

I choose this image because I could see that it would be well used and with the rain today well its totally appropriate! 

The Challenges I am playing with this card are:
Willow Sketchie - Paper Piecing or Sketch - I have done paper piecing :0)
The Crafters Cafe - Stitching (real or faux) - Real
Moving along with the times - Girly, Girly, Prim and Proper.

Have a great day
