The forecast predicts rain for the next few days. Great weather for cleaning, packing up, laundry, and crafting. Guess which one that I have decided will take precedence? You have three choices, the first two don't count! Tee hee!
The feeling of spring is in the air here. Birds are singing in the morning and there are hibiscus flowers blooming here there were none before. We need the showers to make the flowers. So it was what I was thinking of when I thought of early Spring. Thanks Joyce, for the heads up on Face Book for the next Mod Squad Challenge. I had time to think about it.
I am entering this card in the following challenges.

I wanted texture on this one layer, so I used a stencil called Gingham by Simon Says. After the embossing paste dried, I brushed on Colorshine in Chartreuse. usually you spray this on, but I wanted more control.
The stamp set used are from Newton"s Nook and are Spring Showers and Basket of Wishes. I combined the sentiments to make this one.
There is Wink of Stella on the puddle and the umbrella, hard to see.
These stamps have such cute additional images like the little bird and musical note and others as well. I used some inside the card.
Thanks again for sharing some time with me to view my blog. I love hearing what you think and certainly could not have had a great a time here in Florida without all of you. You are only a click away. LOL
