April Showers...

Happy Saturday everyone! I've been kinda lost this week... why? because my computer crashed... HARD!! All I could think of was all my pictures of family events for the last year and a half... birthdays, vacations, graduations, christmas!! LOST... GONE!! ;{  Luckily, I was able to transfer out all my data with another computer, but it gave me quite a scare! and a real good lesson for not backing-up regularly! You bet I will from now!!

So since my computer time has been limited (sharing with my daughter), I've had some time to come up with this card...
Using one of the new April release from All That Scraps, it's Rainy Day Birgitta. She so adorable  taking cover from the rain with that giant leaf umbrella! All the new April releases are now available at the ATS store! I used scraps from BG Kioshi pack, a half used doily, and stenciled in some clouds.
The double tag has a hidden message on the second tag...
just lift the top one...
I'm sending this out to a good friend...
hope she'll be surprised when she gets it!

Oh wow.. that's such a wonderful card... I like the image and your colouring but especially how you used the edgepunch.. looks like a field of shamrocks (I would never have had the idea to use this punch for a shamrock field LOL)... SO GREAT! Thank you for joining us at SSP challenge.
