raindrops keep falling on my head

Good morning girls
Another weekend over and I'm pleased to say it was quite a pleasant one here. Not wall to wall sunshine but nice enough to get out and about.
It's also time for our new challenge over on Karen's Doodles. I'm hoping you all like this challenge a bit more than our bookmarks one from last week:( but we can't get it right all of the time can we? So this week our theme is
Now before I show you my card let me tell you how stupid I've been. I'd a card, notice the a card, not thee card all ready early on in the week. Last night I though I'd better get me bum in gear and get this post sorted and my card uploaded for the challenge. Only to discover that I'd used the wrong challenge. I'd only gone and made the card for next week. By sheer luck I'd coloured another image in pink. So, there was me gone 8pm throwing, yes throwing this one together and rushing to get a pic in the twilight. So forgive the rushed card and the dark pic!!

See what I mean. At least now I can almost smile but last night I wanted to scream!!! Anyway, papers are from Doodlebug, and this little cutie whom I've coloured as usual with my copic markers is called 'Rainy Day', you'll find this one and loads more over at Karen's store.
I've distressed the papers by pulling the edge of my scissors along the edges - I resisted temptation to slit me wrists with them lol Then added some ink too for good measure. So there you have it girls, an nice easy one for you this week. I do hope you'll play along:)

The Secret Crafter - clean and simple
Stamptacular Sunday - distress it
Aly's Sunday Challenge - pretty in pink
Charisma Cardz - inspired by a song (raindrops keep falling on my head)
