April Showers…..


The old saying “April showers bring May flowers” should be changed to “May flowers bring June flower” here in my neck of the woods.  It’s been raining for the last four days.  No sun shine just dull and miserable!  Of course, it’s a great time to hang out in my craft room!

I used the rubber stamp ‘Lulu and Friends’ created by Cheryl Alger of Sassy Cheryl digital images.  I got the rubbah from Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Stamps.  The image was colored with Copics and I paper pieced the umbrella with the same designer paper as the background.  The mini roses are by Prima and the fern is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.  I can’t remember where I got the cute flower button, it could be by Doodlebug.
