CAS-ual Fridays!

We here in upstate NY have definitely had our fair share of "showers"...SNOW showers that is. *grumble*

I'm so ready for real Spring to return. Green grass, birds chirping, flowers blooming...I want it all! Which brings me to this week's Clean and Simple challenge at the CAS-ual Friday blog!


Lets see what your take on this theme is!

I focused more on the showers side of things, and made fun gusts of wind blow the umbrella backwards. 
Both the sentiment and the tiny white daisies on the umbrella are stickers from SRM Stickers, who happen to be our incredibly generous sponsors this week!


I used the bracket and the word "shower" from this sheet of stickers (and added an extra 's'), and the "April" from this sheet
The tiny daisies are from this sheet of stickers.

I hope you'll join us this week for the newest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

This is so darn cute. Who hasn't had a go in with a windblown umbrella. How clever just to turn the stamp over. Thanks for the lightbulb moment.

How perfectly clever! I love how you used the flourishes to make a blustery scene, and yet the umbrella is so cute and cheerful!

Jill said...

So dang clever, Dana! Using the flourishes as the wind . . . genius! I can almost *see* the movement! Great color combo, and you worked the stickers in perfectly. My favorite DT card this week by far!
