FCCB Challenge #107-April Showers

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

Happy Monday all! What a crazy weekend....sunny skies, warm temperatures on Saturday and then yesterday, super cold and rained like crazy!! Now, they are saying SNOW today...yikes! I am not in the mood for that again...Oh well, at least we know it won't stay. Thank goodness!

Well, today is Monday and you know what that means.......Challenge me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is: April Showers! Make a project with an umbrella, rain or clouds on it.

My card base is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 and the base layer at 4 1/2.  I then have another mat which is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 which I used pattern paper from SU-welcome neighbor designer paper pad which I have had for a while and needed to use up.

I cut the cute umbrella and rain boots from the Nate's ABC cartridge at 3 1/2 plus all the layers. I did emboss the boots with the swiss dots folder and the umbrella with the polka dots folder. The umbrella was cut from coordination's paper which I embossed and then sanded it.  It adds a nice texture, ha?  I added some stickles to the boots to dress them up a bit and distressed everything with Tim Holtz-walnut stain. The pretty crinkle ribbon bow is from 3 Girl JAM -hot chocolate and I added a button and twine from October Afternoon collection. The sentiment is from SU-Easter Blossoms.

Now come on and join in the challenge....doesn't it sound like fun?  Can't wait to see what you create! Stop over and check out what the AMAZING Design Team created for your inspiration:)

I am entering this in a challenge at:Frosted Designs ~Fabulous Friday Challenge-Weather

Thanks for stopping,
Sherrie K

Hey I was wondering if you would like me to send you some seaglass! You would do something really special with it , I would love to see what you would do! Just email me your address and I will send some out to you, that way you will have a piece of PEI! Please don't say no!!! hehe
