Sorry You're Under The Weather

Hi everyone ... hope you enjoyed the long Easter weekend. At last we seem to be getting a bit of sunshine although it's still bitterly cold .. but at least there are some teeny weeny signs of spring !! :-)
Anyhoo, I couldn't help but notice there are quite a few April shower and other weather-related challenges around at the moment, so I dug out this extremely old Miss Anya image and had a go. Here's the result.

I always think it's a bit strange using an umbrella / rain on a greetings card ... so on the odd occasion that I do I try to tie it in to the theme of "under the weather" for a get well card.
Stamp: Greeting Farm "Miss Anya";
Media: Promarkers;
Papers: LotV "Petal Fresh";
Supplies: cherry blossoms and daisy from Wild Orchid Crafts; white spiral stems from The Ribbon Girl; white heather spray from local craft shop; pearls from The Hobby House;
Tools: Decorative Labels Eight nestabilities; Memory Box cloud die.
