April Showers Bring May Flowers

Of course, in Chicago, we say April Snow brings happy utility companies!  That's right, here in the suburbs of Chicago, we have had massive flooding, impassable roads, school cancellations, and then, within 24 hours, SNOW!!  Not just snow, but Snow Thunder!!  Go figure!

So to be a polar opposite of our weird and wacky weather, I made a card to match the new Squigglefly Challenge this week, and offer up a flowery card.  The image, an April digi release called Have You Heard by artist Cheryl Alger, was colored with Copics and then fussy-cut and adhered to a piece of patterned paper.  Some pearls, sequins, a lace border and a K & Co sentiment sticker finish off my card.

And it is a very welcome sight in my craft room, much better than the one that was outside my window this a.m. when I woke up.  However, the snow has melted, as it is just above freezing, close to 40 degrees.  This day last year we were enjoying an early day in the low 80's.  Go figure!!

So whether you have rain or snow or are dry as a bone, decorate your life with a card that showcases April Showers or May Flowers and a Squigglefly image.  then join in the challenge fun for a chance to win free digis!!

I'd trade you your 40 degree day for my 80 degree day any day of the week Pat! I really do love your card. The choice in background paper was so creative!

Pat, this is so cute and very sweet! At least you can gaze at your wonderful card and wish for Spring to come soon. I hope it warms up soon. Hugz!
