If you follow the culverts you reach the park where only last September I was gathering conkers, just look at the landscape now. The water is a least 5-6 feet deep here in the middle and possible deeper.
Even the normally mellow water at the ponds is roaring along.
Nicecrane designs for making my GD card. He has so many gorgeous designs do have a look at both his shop and blog for inspiration. The sheet I used is called Fascinating Babies and it features some real cute vintage baby images. Have a look at the link here I chose to use the baby with the umbrella and I also used an amazing stamp which I bought from Designs by Ryn I saw this used on Eileen's blog and had to buy it. I sat looking out at the rain and this is the card I created.
It's a really cool effect isn't it. I used a spare piece of the backing card I made for my #1 Tim card using Pumice stone distress ink which I spritzed with water. The little tag is Lili of the Valley and I added a gold ribbon which was a recent win from the Crafty Ribbons advent blog hop.
