FCCB #208 - April Showers

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge at FCCB!

Challenge #208 April Showers
Create a project using an umbrella

This Weeks Sponsor

Winner will receive their choice of 3 digital images

This challenge is very fitting for me right now - we've been getting a lot of rain and thunderstorms around here lately.  And let me tell you, it seems like every time it has rained here recently, it has poured, just like the sentiment on my card says!!

When I was at one of the local craft stores not too long ago, I was flipping through a pad of paper from The Paper Studio and this paper with the rain boots on it jumped out at me.  I thought it was so cute!  When I saw this challenge, I knew it would be perfect.  I love the bright colors, especially since I've been seeing so many grey skies lately!!

I hope you will join in the fun with us this week at FCCB!  Remember, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by today!
