Friends Share Everything


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kathy our challenge hostess for April brings us her final challenge for the month.

This week our challenge is … April Showers (What does April Showers mean to you, i.e., flowers, weeds, mowing, sun, warmer temperatures, etc.)?

So when I thought about this question I thought about the obvious brings May flowers … I have flowers on the base of the inside of my card. Of course rain also makes that grass grow taller so it has to be mown again … so I include tall grass. If you are going out in the rain you might need an umbrella so you don’t get wet … so I have umbrellas on my designer paper on the outside and the girls huddled under the umbrella on the inside. And of course the rain … the designer paper on the upright part on the inside.


Here is the front of my card … I used umbrella designer paper, tall grass die and the quote for the sentiment.


As you can see I have created a pop up card using the Lucy Label Pop-Up set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. For this card I only used the label part of the pop up leaving the smaller pop up at the top of the platform down.

Earlier this year I purchased the Art Impressions Under My Umbrellas Girlfriends stamp set, which of course I had to use on this card … I guess if you  only have one umbrella you would have to share right!

I added some tall grass to the bottom of the card and at the top I used the Paper Smooches Quotables die for my sentiment … love this die. I also added some Gold/Silver Glitter Dots to the Quote bubble.


Here is one more look at the inside of my card, this time at an angle so you can see the pop up piece.
