April Showers Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Fun Stampers Journey  "April Showers" Blog Hop! I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you arrived here from Rosemary's blog , you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!"

For our hop I chose the new "Hello Puddles Bundle", "The Light" ATS stamp set (from the Spring Mini catalog and hopefully it will be in the BIG June catalog),  "Fun Filled" Prints and "Spring Parade" paper pack (being retired and is on sale now!) along with Pearled Basics  (being retired and is on sale now!) ,  Whip Cream, and  Grape Fusion card stocks.

I wanted to make this card from the time I seen this fun Bundle from the Spring Mini catalog. (Hopefully it will be in the BIG catalog come June along with the Rainbow Drops.)  And this Blog Hop is the perfect theme to show it!

I had an issue with my paper piecing and my black edging showed up in the umbrella center way more than I expected.  Oh, and don't you like the fun Rainbow Drops on the rain boot?

The Pearl paper was fab for the lightening!  Made it just glow! Sad, but it is being retired and is only available I did stamp the cloud and text and sponging with River Stone ink otherwise I used Black Licorice for the elements and Pineapple Smoothie for the sun.

Thanks for hopping to my blog. Please head over to Susan's blog to see what she has to share. Here's a list with links of all of us involved.

This is SO cute! I was going to use this set, but it's on back-order, so had to "make do." But when my stamps come in, I'm definitely going to CASE this.

Cute & colorful!

A very pretty card. I too hope this stamp set stays active with FSJ. The rainbow drops on the boots are so cute.

Lots of fun rain/umbrella cards in this hop! Love the little bit of gray you added to the clouds. I don't have that die set yet! Kerry, Coach 401

You are right -- that pearl paper is really perfect for the lightening! Love the entire card and sad to see so many of the parts are on the retiring list ... **sniff sniff**
Thanks for joining in the Hop! :D

I love the bling you added to the boots!
