Anyone seen any April showers?


Good morning

Hope there's no April showers where you are!
We have lots of them over at Fab'n'Funky challenges this week
Where our hostess with the mostest Anne-Marie chose just that theme for the week!

April showers

I decided to turn the theme on its head and make April Showers a good thing!

Here's my card using the cute digi
Full Bloom from StampArt Designs by Kathryne 
available here


As you can see I went with an April Showers ....bring May flowers sentiment 
- just to ring the changes

We also have the results of our recent DT call 
- so many lovely and talented crafters and so few DT positions to go round!

Have a look over at Fab'n'Funky challenges there's so much going on over there this week

We have two fabulous sponsors this week.....




Who is offering a fabulous prize of 5 digis to the first prize winner 

and


Who are offering  a $20 voucher and free shipping! to our randomly selected winner

So here's what I did for my card this week

Image - full bloom from StampArt Design by Kathryne 
Coloured with Copics
Papers - Bonnets and bowties from LOTV
Card - Bazill Basics
Glitter - Diamond stickles
Flowers - EK success punch
Die cut swirl - Memory box
Die cut butterfly - Whimsystamps
Ribbon - vintage seam binding from crafty ribbons
Pearls from my stash
Crystal "A" - from my stash  I always thought I'd use it for something for my daughter Alison - but its been there for years  unused so I decided today was the day!

We'd love to see your April Showers creations at Fab'n'Funky challenges this week
see you over there!
