April Showers

Hi there!

I've a dinner guest tonight ... Stella's son Martijn is coming over so I've done some baking and before I start the preparations for our meal I've a card to share that I'm linking up with the new challenge at 


 I spoke too soon in my last post ...  The April showers have arrived Lol! So whilst the JUGS inspiration photo shows beautiful Spring tulips I'm using umbrellas! Well, the die was still on my desk from my previous card and I love that little die


I painted some card stock in various colours before adding some splats and then die cutting the umbrellas - 


I tried to include as many colours on my card as in the photo... 



...and I think it's kind of cheerful even if it isn't outside

I hope your weekend is off to a good start ...

Wishing you a lovely day

Love all your gorgeous umbrella's, Ros, we have at least two more days of rain coming this week, but I am not sure I would need an umbrella. I do however love the fact that many places need umbrellas most of the year. Have a wonderful Saturday!
