April Showers

Happy Wednesday! I love Wednesday's! Why? Because Wednesday's start a new challenge over at Cooking With Cricut!

This week the theme is, April Showers...Project must have rain or water as the focus.

When I think of rain, I always think of an umbrella, so I decided to go with that for my project.

This card also fits challenges going on at Fantabulous Cricut and The Paper Variety.

I decided to make a little gift bag with some flower seeds in it to give as a little gift to someone. I used a little gift bag and decorated the front of it. I cut my umbrella from Create A Critter at 3.75". The label on the flower seed packets says, "April Showers Bring May Flowers". I just typed that up on my computer and cut out 2 labels from Create A Critter to mat it on. The labels were cut out at 1.5" and 1.25".

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my blog! I hope you decide to join in on the challenge over at Cooking With Cricut! I can't wait to see what you create! :) Have a great crafty day!

P.S. Don't forget to join us on Saturday April 9 for a bunny blog hop! Lots of inspiration for your Easter projects!
