Weathering the Storm!

It's the middle of the month....time for the infamous DUEL between the Dazzlers and the Divas!

Terry and LJ are the hostesses this month and here are the deets straight from Terry!

March is National Umbrella Month!

We all know that when it rains, it pours so LJ and I thought we’d put together kits with an image including umbrellas.

The contents of your kit include:

Image and Sentiment: MFT - a la modes “The Rain Will Come”
Pink and Silver Dots: Craftwork Cards Candi
Ribbon: Michaels
Flowers: Martha Stewart crafts
Square Rhinestones: from my stash
DP: Paper Pizazz
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Sea salt, Coredinations Blush Red

Have fun creating….and always remember…. “True Friends Help You Weather Every Storm”!!

It is so the truth that true friends help you through it all!  I must give all my fellow Duelers their dues because they are some of my truest friends!!   Please stop by their blogs and leave them LUV!

Oh, you want to see my it is:

Thanks for stopping,

Hi April! What a darling card to celebrate the rain. Love that cute image and how you paper pieced the umbrella. Those little flowers tucked partially tucked under the image panel and the silver dots are terrific embellishments.

You are so right...True friends help you through it all. Thanks for being my friend! HUGS!!

I love all of this paper piecing on the umbrella I am seeing this round on the duel. Each of you did a different take on what part of the umbrella to piece. I really like how you did yours!

Great card!

Wow April, I love this layout and the colors. The image is colored to a "T". Is the umbrella paper pieced?? You did a great job with this challenge...♥

Oh April... this is FANTASTIC! Love the way you did the umbrella and your card design is awesome, too! Nice!!!

Adorable! Love the paper piecing!

Terry Ladwig said...

Love this April!

It seems as though some of us had the same idea with piecing the umbrella....but we all did it differently! I love the way you pieced the top of the umbrella and colored the under side!!

Love the classic yellow rain coat too!!

Great card :-)

Hmmm, looks like my original comment blinked off into oblivion. If you do get it, just delete one of these.

I love how you cut the image into a circle, and then decorated the circumference, totally great! Using that gorgeous DP for her umbrella is super.
Great job and thanks for being a great friend!
