April Showers

I am getting a late start posting today! I am off work today as I am on most Fridays, but this week I found myself caught up on my errands and other things so I am having a lazy day. That means I am pretty much spending the day in PJs, hair in a ponytail and I have been playing in my craft room almost all day and forgot to come upstairs to write my post! The challenge on the Sassy Cheryl Blog this week is April Showers and this is the card I made for that challenge. I love this image because it is just adorable, but that little duck makes me smile. I went with some brighter spring colors and wanted to use some paper that had flowers on it since April Showers bring May Flowers. Image is from Sassy Cheryl, papers are DCWV, image was colored with Copics and I used some brads from Hobby Lobby, there is a little Glossy Accents on her swim mask.

A funny story about April Showers bring May Flowers; my maiden name is Flowers and I have a grandmother with the name of Mae. My Mother almost gave me that name when I was born and I would have gone through life known as Mae Flowers. Talk about being made fun of on the playground! I am so thankful to the family members that talked her out of that one. 

Samantha has a blog post today too.

I have entered a contest based on the USDA's My Plate food guideline. If you can, would you please vote for me HERE. Thanks!!

Have a great weekend!
