April Showers..........


Yep, that's what they say - April showers bring May flowers! We haven't had that many "showers" yet this month but we do have a lot of flowers right now. It's nice to see leaves back on the trees, green grass, and yes, flowers! I think Spring has sprung!

The layout for this card is from MoJo Monday #133 and the "theme" (showers) is for the Stamps R Us Challenge blog. Check this one out - there is a new challenge on the first of each month and yes, you have an entire month to post your project.

This image is Singing in the Rain from Stampabilities. The paper I used is some unknown blue from a textured mat pack from ColorBox, white, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, and some DP from the Good Neighbors pack. The image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I really didn't like the buttons but needed something there to stay "in tune" with the sketch and brads or flowers just did not look right.

Thanks for stopping by.....................

Great job with the sketch...it's still sitting on my desk wondering what to do with it! That mouse is too cute...he actually looks like he's enjoying the rain!

I just love house mouse and you did a fabulous job with this one. We have had floods here and they are talking of more rain "thunder storms" to night and tomorrow. :(

Love what you have created here with the Mojo layout!! Looking forward to a little rain here, soon!! Hope! Hope!

So far the drizzle has just created a green paste of the oak pollen that coats our vehicles!
