April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy Monday! If we lived our lives by weekends, we'd only have 52 per year, so let's not lament Mondays so much. (Yes, I can hear you all saying, "yeah right." Smiley from

But it IS the start of a new challenge at The Pink Elephant, so that's a good thing!!!

This week we have a color challenge, and the color is AQUA! April showers bring May flowers, and rain is thought of as being aqua blue, right? So I went all the way with the theme and colored up this adorable Wild Sprouts Rain Rain digi image by The Greeting Farm, I LOVE rain, so this is a happy challenge for me!

It seemed only right to follow the Sketchy Saturday sketch at Club Anya & Friends. The DP is from the Pink Flamingo collection by Stampin' Up. The "water drops" are Rain Dots by Cloud 9 Designs. The flower is cut from Papertrey Ink flower dies.

I hope you'll stop by The Pink Elephant to play this week, and also to wish a fond farewell to several Design Team members who are retiring after today's challenge. They will be missed!

See you all tomorrow for the next Tiddly Inks Challenge AND a very special blog hop... bwaaahahhaaaaahaaaa!
