April Showers

Good Morning. How is everyone today? It's cool in the Northeast these days. I guess that is normal for this time of year but I could use it a few degrees warmer.

Today is the Going Grey with Scrap Creations challenge. This weeks theme is April Showers. I couldn't wait for this theme. I love images with umbrellas. I chose this stamp from High Hopes to make my card. I think this Ant is so cute. This is an easy challenge for everyone. April Showers can bring May Flowers so you can do flowers or garden. C'mon and join the fun!!

The DT's did some an amazing job this week. You need to check them out.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Stamptacular - Spots & Dots -I love my white pen. I thought the umbrella needed something so I added dots. I wanted the boots to match so I added there also.

The Corrosive - Texture - I added crystal effects to the raindrops, puddle, umbrella and flowers to look wet.

Crafty Catz - Sketch. The great thing about this sketch was that I could easily turn it upside down so my saying was at the top of the card.

Challenge up your life
- April weather - It always rains in April here in the Northeast.

Res Q - This was a neat theme. There is a word puzzle with the hints. I choose Blue, Pink, Rain.

For Fun - April Showers - How can you make it through April without this theme.

Ooh La La
- April Showers - Perfect these days for the Northeast

Tallen's Place - It's all about you! I'm looking outside and it looks like it is going to rain any time now so that's about me today!

Something Completely Different
- The letter B - Boots, Blue, and Brads on my card

The Crazy Challenge - Don't call me flat - I love popping things up and this card is no different. I popped the image, flowers and saying.

Thank you for stopping by and looking at my card. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment. I enjoy reading all of them.

CS: SU Pretty in Pink,
DP: Basic Grey

Hi Peggy, this is indeed a great card; love those papers! The umbrella popped out like that really reveals a perfect 3D effect - terrific! I love those flowers - did you add glossy accents? It makes them look wet, but mostly they look realistic! Thanks for joining us this week at Tellen's Place! :~)
