Challenge 91 - What's the weather (sun, wind, rain, snow etc)

We really enjoyed seeing your activity/hobby projects.  It was really nice how the theme was embraced by all that entered.  Sometimes I think as crafters we get stuck with the same style and it's good to try a theme you wouldn't normally try.  The Winner and Top 3 will be announced later (you know what's coming next) become a follower and you won't miss the post.

Our sponsor for this Challenge is the wonderful

Here is a little about Lizzy.
Lizzy has always loved the stranger, quirkier side of life and that is exactly what she loves to create. Her art described as a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! As a lover of all things whimsical, kawaii and creepy cute, she throws in some Pastel Goth with a touch of glam, punk & rockabilly pinup!
She has certainly never been a mainstream type of girl and definitely won't fit into your stereotypical cookie cutter artists role;  but rather she finds beauty in the truly unique, big eyed creepy little cuties with a bittersweet sadness. She is never truly happier then when she is in her art studio painting or sewing, creating a whimsical dream world easily recognizable as her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, Lizzy’s creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness.
Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that she is creating today.  Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same;  A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

Prize: 3 images from the store 
  
Theme: What's the weather
  (sun, clouds, rain etc.)

We were generously given some images to use.  To go to the store follow the title link.  To leave some love and see how our talented DT have made their projects click on the name.
