April Showers

Rain is part of spring and the old saying April showers bring May flowers is certain to ring true this year for my neighborhood. It's going to be a colorful May for us!

All this talk about rain is because I'm on my blog today with a sweet little stamp I received from Stampendous to make this card for their catalog.
I really enjoyed creating the shadows and highlights in the leaves for this House-Mouse Designs Rainfall Shelter stamp. If you are curious about any part of it read on for a supply list and instructions!

There is more from Stampendous and a few of my design teammates!

My supply list has Amazon (AZ) links that take you through an Affiliate program and what that means is when you click a link and buy it on Amazon I get paid a small amount at no extra cost to you. When possible I'll link to the company website or another online store, but remember you can always go to your local crafting and scrapbooking store to buy it as well. If you don't see it there just ask them to order it for you!
