Showers and Flowers

I just can't resist doing the Squigglefly challenges when my "relax" weeks roll around! This week, Holly's group has inspired everyone to make a card fitting the title "April Showers Bring May Flowers" (SFC1613). You can pick from two options: Showers (water, blue, etc) or May Flowers - I did both. I dug out my fav Sam's Rainy Day image by Cheryl Alger - I just can't resist how fun it is to paper piece the umbrella and her face is sooo sweet. I have been in an Oz mood every since I went to see my friends Michael and Patty (and their dog Murphy) perform it in our local theater. It is such a wonderful story! So my sentiment says "When it Rains aren't you glad you are not the Wicked Witch."



I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #98 - isn't it fun!

Hope your Monday was good! Hugz!
