April Showers

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.  We went to Cumbria  to see the home of Beatrix Potter, Hill Top Cottage.  We had a fabulous time even though it rained the whole day and we even had snow at one point.  Lake Windermere looked wonderful too and there was snow capped hills in the background, that was our view while we ate our picnic.
I thought the kids might not have enjoyed it but the kids found it quite interesting.  I can honestly say Beatrix Potter was a very inspiring woman of her time.

So for the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Beth's turn to choose the theme and she chose "April Showers".
I used this House Mouse stamp and I always love colouring it.  Because the image is quite big and detailed I kept the card simple.
Of course you must use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.
