April Showers

 April showers is the new challenge ag Shopping Our Stash. It's an easy one this fortnight, rain, umbrella, puddles, clouds maybe a baby or wedding shower card, lots of choices. 

I do love my House Mouse staaps I'm sure this is one of the first ones I bought, it a wood block stamp and I do love the feel of the block in my hand, although cling mount are easy to restamp when you mess up. It took me a while go get this done, I had everything but the sentiment picked out, sat and coloured the image and realized I had maid a very noticeable error on the flower, gave a big sigh and stamped another (badly) third stamping went well as did the colouring and it went faster than the first try. The raindrops winked with stella. The patterned paper is from Dollarama and amazingly good weight too. 

I haven't finished the inside of the card although I saved a scrap of the patterned paper for the inside and I can decide what kind of sentiment to use as this could be a get well or a thinking of you card and by leaving it blank you can just write your own words. 

I am entering this in:

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the Main Blog and see what April Showers the rest of the team have made.

Well OF COURSE you have the perfect House Mouse for this one! I love that it's one of the first you bought (super-stashy!) and altho I'm sorry you needed more than one attempt stamping and coloring, it is bizarrely comforting to me that other ppl do that too! Beautiful, adorable, super cool card! ♥
