April Showers

Hello everyone! I'm a little late getting this posted...today is my Mother's 89th birthday so I had to go sing Happy Birthday to her. We took her out to eat last Saturday and we will celebrate again on Easter Sunday when all the kids are over. I guess when you turn 89, you can celebrate all week!!! I have to go find her a new Scrabble Dictionary...she has one that is over 20 years old and falling apart!! She loves to play games, especially Scrabble and Cribbage and she wins too!!!

Anyway....
The Color Challenge on Splitcoast was to use Bashful Blue, So Saffron, and Close to Cocoa. I love the colors today...soo springy!! Nothing shouts Spring like April showers so I had to use Clear Dollar Stamps Charliene April Showers with her little umbrella!! She was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics.




The Picket Fence also from Clear Dollar Stamps was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The umbrella, boots, and ducks from the April Showers set were paper pieced with SU dps and the umbrella's 3 layers were popped up with dimensionals. The little blue umbrella brad was added for the ducks protection....they need to stay out of the rain, too!!! Shading was sponged and the raindrops from the April Showers set were stamped with Bashful Blue and the Stampin Up scalloped punch was used for all the scallops. Buttons, velvet ribbon, and the sentiment from the April Showers set finish it off.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a great day!!
