Calendar Girls are at "IT" again

Posted by Picasa  Terry is our wonderful hostess this month.  And she is truly in the Spring mood with a water theme....

In her words: "My challenge to you is to show me your April showers!  I have 2 requirements for you:

1. Use an image with a duck, a puddle, an umbrella or anything resembling rain or water!

2. Use a fun technique on your card that is “water” related.
Well, I have a puddle and an umbrella.....missed out on the duck.  And my water technique which is hard to see is that the rain has crystal affects, or something to that affect, over it.  I posted two pictures with the hopes that you could 'see' it on one of them.  I wonder if the Calendar Girls would consided my clear bubble centers as water related?  Probably
Here's the second you don't think my ramblings are that of a nutty
The papers are all scraps, the image is Bugaboo Stamps, the sentiment is SU and the flowers are punched using a punch bt Creative Memories.  Oh yeah, colored up the immie with my Bic's and sentiment stamped in Cocoa by CTMH.
PLEASE, stop over to the blogs of the rest of the Calendar Girls.....we all love to get LOVE~

Super cute. Love your colors and layout. The row of flowers are perfect since flowers are what April showers bring. Great coloring of your image.

Totally cute card, April! So cheery with those bright colors and darling image. Love the little row of flowers -- not only pretty, but a good reminder that the rain has a purpose. :-)

Heehee, I just popped over from Kels blog and she too had a card with an umbrella and so I have to say that yours also reminds me of home!! This is commonly how I go to and from work each day! But enough about that, your card is SUPER CUTE!! I love the colors and layout you choose, as well as the ironic sentiment :) HUGS to you, my sweet friend!
