April Showers

Everyone else may be having April showers, but not down here in this part of Texas.  I've never even owned a pair of rain boots in my life - no need!  When it does rain a lot (on occasion) I just slap on my cowboy boots.  If they get wet it's really not a problem since they'll kinda mold to your feet (not mold ON your feet though).


If I ever did have to buy rain boots I'd probably want them to be least be as cute as these from SU.  I added some Glossy Accents to them so they look a little motley looking in the photo due to glare.  I believe the paper I used is also from SU.  Oh, and by the way.....I used the same sketch as we're using this week in the Seize the Birthday challenge.  You still have time to play along but remember we want to see your masculine birthday cards this go-round.

I'll enter this in the inspiration challenge at PinSpriational Challenges (inspiration photo).

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

I have been snow boots but not rain boots. I'm with you, if I bought any they would have to be as cute as these. I love this sketch, it's very easy to work with and yet it can look so different just by turning it. Love that paper and bow, Lynn. Enjoy your Sunday.

So cute, Lynn! Loving the boots. Are those paper pieced or is the cloud design part of the image? Whichever, they're just darling. Love that big bow you did. That ribbon is gorgeous.

Hi Lynn,
Glossy accents looks amazing on the boots. They look spanking smart and real. And that double ribbon is awesome. You must have the best ribbon collection in blogland...
Love,

I am very tempted to buy rain boots this year - I am tired of having wet feet! We just got snow again too - but I'll take it. I have webbed toes by now anyway ;)
Love all the turquoise - and that is a fun sentiment!

Cheryl said...

So pretty! I love all the blue. We definitely could use some rain boots like these around WI with all the rain we are getting.

Margaret said...

Nothing worse than moldy boots! :)
Your card is so cute and your bow is gorgeous! Unfortunately, I am well acquainted with rain boots. We wear them quite a bit on the farm in the spring... Fortunately, there are some pretty cute styles available so I can look stylish while ankle deep in mud and sheep poo...
