Do You Love Puddles?


Hello! Do you love puddles? or rain?  Well today starts a brand new challenge over at the Card Crafter's Circle and it's April Showers!  I don't live in a place that gets  much rain and so when it does rain we all find ourselves glued to the window watching.  We often also open windows and doors to hear the pitter patter, and oh the smell....that's wonderful!


Well, for my card I've used this sweet Little Girl with Umbrella image from Milk Coffee and coloured her with my pencil crayons.  I have her standing in a puddle (of which I have yet to grow out of loving to do!) I added some lace and twill ribbon and added a tag with a sentiment from my stash. It says I've been thinking about you today.  I used some papers that I got at the dollar store and a bling flourish from Recollections and some added rhinestones.
We'd love to have you show us your April Showers cards and hear about what you love about the spring rains.......April Showers bring May Flowers!
Have a beautiful day and here are a couple more pics of my card.

I've enjoyed checking out all your creations since my last visit. Wonderful! This one is my favourite!
We are in "mud season" right now so my kids -even as they get older- love to find the puddles!
