Count your rainbows........

Hello all!
Back with a reminder that the very first challenge over at Time Out still has another week for you to get those entries in!  The theme is your own inspiration from the phrase 'Dancing in the rain' and you could win a fab prize too so please do take some time out to join us :)
         I haven't played with an Octopode Factory image for a while so I decided to do something with one of the new releases from Lily - you can check out her shop here.
         I used my Copics to colour the image and then fussy cut her and stuck her onto a copy of an old postcard from Venice, adding a stamped sentiment and some flowers and gems to the brolly.   I need to keep reminding myself of this sentiment over the next few weeks - over the last 25 years, I've moved house 14 times!!  You'd think I'd have the whole thing fine tuned but nope, still finding it difficult to declutter and let go of things - must have a hoarding gene in my DNA, a craft hoarding gene!
                              Anyway, enough of the whining, I need to get on so I'll finish up here with the usual photo and enter this into the challenges at -

         Thanks for stopping by today!
