Lolly & her Brolly

Well here's Lolly waiting for the storm to pass... and I'm still waiting for it to get here.  We keep hearing of this impending storm but after a few dark clouds and a couple of drops all we end up with is another bad weather report.  We desperately need a good downpour... the poor grass is yellow & crunchy.  So with any luck, maybe Lolly here will bring us some.  Here's Stamping Bella's  Uptown Girl LOLLY and her BROLLY

Isn't she cute?  I added some sparkle to her dress (under the coat) and to her brolly, although it's difficult to see in the photo.  I also got carried away and thought I'd add some Glossy Accent drops to the roses as though they were rained on... but they turned into rather large drops so I'm going with the theory that a large truck drove by........

I finished the inside with the rest of the sentiment that comes with this Uptown Girl.  This gorgeous paper is from the dark ages - it was at the bottom of my scrap drawer and I love it!  It's called Vintage Blossoms by Daisydspaper.  Wish I had more, but Lolly used it up.  8)

Well, enjoy your Monday everyone.  Friday will be here soon enough... and don't forget to enter a card by e-mailing it to Emily ( by Thursday evening to be included in Bellariffic Friday... the theme is BIRTHDAY.  Also, while at Bloggabella you might be interested to read up on some new changes Emily will be making to the Stamping Bella website and how you could earn yourself $50 in Bellabucks.  If you're clever with words and good at tag lines... then this should be easy peasy.

WOW, Lolly is awesome. Fantastic colouring on her, love that paper too - I think I have a piece of that - yep I'm a hoarder! great layout, love that truck splash on the roses- adds great detail!

Holy! The "dew droplets" on the roses are what complete this card for me. They are not too big, in fact, they are just right.

Carla to droplets on the roses are perfect. They don't look too big at all. Stunning card! As for the rain we had our quota out here in June! Now I just want sunny skies
