April Showers Bring May Flowers

Sassy Dawn is the hostess over at Sassy Cheryl's this week and she wanted to see some more rain.  Evidently she isn't getting enough rain, but I promise the rest of the country sure is.  Good Lord, our flowers are going to be beautiful this year (or drown out Ha Ha)  It has indeed been a rainy April here in South Carolina.

I pulled out one of my favorite of Cheryl's older images to color this week.  It fits the challenge perfectly, don't you think?  It is called April Showers after all.  LOL I am not sure if it is still in the store, but you could  email Cheryl and see if she can send it to you.

I am so happy I was able to join in the challenge this week.  I missed out the last couple of weeks because life just keeps getting in my way.  I haven't even been visiting my bloggy friends lately.  I sure hope that I get to go visiting this week.  I miss going around the world on my weekly and sometimes even daily visits.  So here's a notice for you.  Put the tea kettle on,  I am on my way to catch up on what has been going on in your world.

Card Recipe:

Paper was all from my stash.  The DP is so cute, it already has holes punched it it to allow the pink card stock to show through.  It was a gift from my Inky Digit buddy, Marilyn.  It is Animal Crackers Ella DieCut Flowers by Making Memories.

Oval and Scalloped Oval punches are Stampin Up
