Happy Good Friday

April Showers bring forth May flowers
Hello again - and so quickly too ....

I hope everyone is having a lovely relaxing Good Friday and that you're enjoying all that yummy seafood.

I've just finished this card which I would like to enter into the Crafty Calendar Challenge "April Showers Bring Forth May Flowers".

I've been pretty literal with this one .... I've used my CC Designs, Swiss Pixies, 'Heidi among the flowers' stamp as well as my handmade roses for the May flowers part and then I've been even more literal and cut out some clouds and used my Bella 'raindrops' falling from the clouds.  I thought I was being clever anyway lol.

A closeup of my handmade paper roses
I hope you like the photos I've used, I played around in photoshop so that I could put a closeup of my handmade flowers and not have the distraction of the background and then I thought "Why not do this on the card photo too" ... Let me know if you like it or whether I should leave the card as a straight clean image.

So, I'm off to make some yummy lemon prawn pasta for dinner so until next time, Happy Easter.
