April Showers - Challenge Me Monday #107

Happy Monday!!  It is time for another Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut!! :)

 #107 - April Showers - Make a project with an umbrella, rain, or clouds on it.

The project that I made & submitted for the challenge this week is a card that I am sending to my sister.  As I have mentioned before in a different post, my sister & I have always been close & even though we are seperated by distance and different time zones, we still continue to be close.  We are no different than other sisters in the sense that we had your typical fights...over clothes, taking too longer in the shared bathroom getting ready, but when it came right down too it...we always had each others back....and still do.  :)  Her and her family are planning on coming for a visit in a couple months & planning on staying with my husband and I.  It will be nice to get my baby fix from being around my nephew & niece.  :)  I wanted to send a quick little note to her to tell her how excited I am to see her & the family.

Over at My Craft Spot, the challenge is 'Make it Pop!' - use dimensionals to make some part of your card really stand out, so I am going to also submit this card as well.  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
