It's raining men

Well it's raining on Edwin anyway! Susie and Vikki set the title of this challenge at Die Cut Dreams and I think I've taken it a bit literally! The sketch is from A Spoon Full of Sugar (I'm doing a one week guest design team spot with them soon :) and Stamp with Fun, My Time to Craft and Creative Inspirations all have the Autumn theme so I'm combining - not to be confused with combine harvesting ha, ha.....

I have to say I groaned at the Autumn theme as these just aren't my colours (and I have another Autumn post coming up in a bit) but I gave it a try. I was happy until I added the glittery swirls, they're not 'me' and I don't like them but I can't get them off without tearing everything up.

I used Edwin from Magnolia and shaded him with ProMarkers, the papers are a candy win from Evelina and are My Minds Eye. The leaf brads I've had ages - I think from a Papermania kit and the sentiment is Hot Off The Press.

Zac is tons better today, thanks so much for all your well wishes, he's given it to me now which is one way of getting rid of it I suppose. I've cheered up by seeing that I've won a guest design team spot with Allsorts for the whole of October - how exciting is that?



  1. Stunning card as always Victoria and I love this stamp fab colour combo too
