If a Kiss Was a Raindrop

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #112 - April Showers

Good Morning Blog Land! Tuesday has rolled around again so that must means it's time for another Sassy Cheryl's challenge. I am lucky enough to host this week and I chose the theme April Showers. We haven't had that many showers here on the coast. I sure wish we would...this pollen is KILLING ME!! 
I chose Little Land Swimmers for my card this week. Don't you just love this little cutie and her little ducky friend splashing around in the rain? I remember doing that when I was a kid. I also remember doing a lot of other things like popping tar bubbles on the street, catching bumble bees in Coke bottles, playing Kick the Can until it was dark, playing Hop Scotch on the side walk & riding my bicycle with no hands...man, those were the days!!! All those things AND April Sowers means one thing...Summer is coming - WOO HOO!!!

So, get out your umbrellas and goulashes and come play along this week in the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.
The image I used today is in Cheryl's shop in the $2.00 bin!!! She also has a new cutie patootie 
called Sam's Rainy Day that would be such a great addition to your Sassy Cheryl images.



Happy Crafting Y'all!!!


Sentiment: Create With TLC
Paper: Echo Park - Umbrellas, Bazzill Basic - Whirlpool
