Saturated Canary challenge 15- April Showers

Image- Duck, Duck Goose  from Krista Smith's Saturated Canary Digi's.

Afternoon Peeps!!
I hope you are all having an awesome week! Its time for a new challenge over on the Saturated Canary Challenge blog and this time we want to see.......
April Showers!

Ok, so I can't help but think of the bambi song....

Ha!! now I got ya'll singing it!! :)

Anywhoo!! I just had to use Duck, Duck Goose for my card. I have had her sat in my pile of 'really need to play with that one's for a couple of weeks now. I decided on a get well card theme for mine, with an under the weather kinda thought in my head :)

I got the websters pages papers on a crafty mag a couple of weeks ago and I lurve them!!! I coloured her up to match  them and then had some fun making flowers and embellies. The gorgeous big pinky coloured paper is from Funky Hand's craft the year away cd and I love how it goes so perfick with the websters pages paper. They were only 6x6" size and this card is 7.5x7.5" so I needed something good to pop underneath! My papercraft factories are perfect for this job because the papers come in sooo many different colourways and you can always find one to match what you are using! love it!!

The umbrella is from my create a critter cart and its gorgeous! I cut it in normal and shadow to give it a bit of umpf and added some doodly stitches to it.

Of course, Lord Tim had to feature too and he came in the form of some lurvely tattered floral flowers and a little lace border :) I even pretended he had invented a tattered florals on the edge die....yup glue and paper piecing and there you go Tim...we need a tattered florals on the edge die purlease!!!! :)

There's a teensy bit of lace under the border piece and it looks so pretty IRL but doesn't want to show itself too well in the piccy!! 
I made my sentiment in word and then printed it out onto a good old mini tag from staples!! oooh I love stationary so much!!
And of course there was a little pile of pens involved in the making of this card :) here it is...
So what do you need to do to join in with us over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog??!
