Like the title says . . . just smile! You have to because all those April showers bring us tons of beautiful blooms just like the one Lolly has in her pot.
It was so gorgeous here today. We had the doors open (after hubby finished cutting the grass) and the fans going. Everything is greening up. It's just my favorite time of year. I was a bit ahead on DT commitments so I decided to have a little play time. I love the Sketch Saturday sketches and rarely miss a week of not using one on one of my projects. This card used the new one that just posted today.
Most of my cards this week have been fairly CAS, but I pulled out a few gadgets and goodies for this one. Lots of die cuts and some glittery Stickles for her rain coat. For the umbrella I used a Prismacolor fine line marker after I'd colored it with Copics to add the red dots. Then I went back in with a white gel pen and dotted each one.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
7 Kids College Fund--April Showers
Simon Says Stamp--anything goes
Make It Monday--anything goes
Marker Pop--April Showers
Hope Lolly makes you smile and that you have a wonderful weekend!
