Tropical Thursday..... NOT

Goodness me, I think Autumn Winter has set in today. It is miserable!

I should really have done a summery card to cheer us up but it's a new home card instead and unfortunately I actually forgot to take a photo of the finished article before I gave it to my friend whose Mum had asked me for it so this isn't the best photo!

I was inspired by a card that the lovely Cheremane did for Visible Image and figured I could use the Visible Image plaint splats with this little painter! I think he's a bit messy don't you..... and no dust sheets in sight... pfft. I've used the Vintage Boys LOTV art pad as my image today - these are fantastic. I liked a few of the images but didn't think I would get enough use out of them to warrant buying the stamps so this was a great alternative.
