April Showers Bring May Flowers

Well I don't know how much truth there is to that here where I live. We've had so much rain, it's going to drown the flowers. I finished my card with a major thunderstorm going on, and made a mad dash back to the house as soon as I got it finished and photographed. At any rate this week on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog the theme is "April Showers Bring May Flowers", and you need to either use rain drops or flowers in your creation.

Tiddly Inks is having a Treasure Hunt Blog Hop through tomorrow night. There are tremendous prizes and blog candy up for grabs. To read all about it and get on your way hopping click HERE. Also, you should know that there's a 25% off sale going on through May 3 also, and you can get in on the action by going to the Tiddly Inks Store. There are a ton of new images, you don't want to miss out on, so be sure to check it out.

For this challenge I have chosen to use this sweet image called "Donna's Adventure". I've colored her with my copics and then cut her out. I have her raised off the paper with sticky foam.

Now aren't these papers the greatest and perfect for this challenge? Everything, papers, rubber boots and the umbrella are from a great digital paper kit called April Showers from Just So Scrappy 2. They have some wonderful kits at amazingly low prices. The frog was is a wooden embellishment from a package I found at Hobby Lobby and the sentiment which I think is perfect for this card was from the $1 bin at Michaels.

Thanks for stopping by. I think I'm just going to get this entered into the challenge with a few minutes to spare.
