Happy Little Thoughts

It's time for another challenge at Little Red Wagon! This week, Brenda chose "April Showers" as our theme - create something with rain or water.


I used a Reverse Confetti cloud die cut to make my sky, masking areas as I inked around them. The little umbrella is from Craftin Desert Divas and popped onto my card front. The sentiment is retired from My Craft Spot. I cut the mat and frame using dies from My Favorite Things and finished everything off with some little droplets - my rain!


Please head to Little Red Wagon to enter your April Showers creation - and to see what the other Girlfriends have created. We've got a new Girlfriend on the block: Sandy of Snippety Do Dah. Please be sure to check out her fun blog!

I'm entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Work it Wednesday (Pastels) and their Monday challenge
(April Showers Bring May Flowers) AND their Wednesday challenge (Let's Do the Polka)
