April Showers

Happy Wednesday once more to all who stop by here.  April is a mental month for me because so many of my close friends and family members have birthdays in April and every year it catches me out and unprepared!!  This year is no exception :o(  I've got a busy time over the next couple of days as I have a few cards to get made.  I've also got an exciting function to prepare for later this year too as hubs and I are celebrating 15 years as Mr & Mrs.  After a lot of chat (from me) and a lot of listening (from him!) we have decided to have a Mad Hatter's Tea Party by way of celebration and I am having the best time making the preparations.  The only thing we can't rely on is obviously the weather, so I'm putting a contingency plan in place too!  Ideally we will have a lawn back by then - just now it is a sad and sorry excuse for a lawn and I am planning on getting out there to repair it over the next few days.  Very little rain coupled with lots of snow and ice have pretty much decimated our lawn and all that is left is dry burnt grass, lots of moss and tons of dandelions and dock leaves trying to break through.

Onto my card this week.  Over at Midweek Magnolias, my fabulous teamies have created a wonderful selection of inspiring samples to get people to join in with our April Showers theme.  Here is my offering:
Once again the bg papers are my own creation, and Tilda is coloured with my Faber Castell pencils. 

I've even been and bought a couple of purple pencils this week - eek!  I am hopeless with purple but I really want to give it a go!  I did use it on the flowers though:
I probably should consider moving away from blues anyway - it's my favourite colour but I tend to use it too much.... 

Well that's my lot for today - I have a couple of calls to make, a couple of cards to make, and a few pressies to wrap!  It feels like Christmas round here!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!  :o) xxx
