Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog : April Showers / Spring Blossoms


This weeks at Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog our challenge is to create something with the theme of Spring Flowers / April Showers.  I was thinking that you have seen a lot of flowers from me and not enough rain.  I have to tell you that I LOVE rainy days!!!  I thinks it's because I live in San Diego, California and the fact that we don't get many rainy days in the year, that makes me enjoy them even more.  Rainy days make me think of cozy days, staying in with my kids and husband, fireplace going and comfort food. 

The top picture was taken to with a dark background and I used a flash so the liquid glass can be more visible.  The bottom picture was taken with a light background with NO flash, so the liquid glass with prisma glitter could be more visible for you.


If it seems that I have been using a lot of clear cards for my projects lately... well you are correct. I've been trying to get out of making conventional/traditional cards, but keeping in line with CTMH products only.  So... for now I will use up all my clear cards by altering them a little at a time.

 As you can see that I did use a positive sentiment for rain on the card and when you open the card, there is a little cute surprise.   I also like leaving room for a personal message which makes this card more personal.
 Need some more inspiration to create your own card for this weeks challenge?...Then take a peek at what the rest of the DT created:
We have two new amazingly generous and talented sponsors this month. LeAnne Dudley and Michelle Zimmerman

  2. Love your liquid glass raindrops on the clear card! All the little details are perfect! The little duckie behind the sentiment is adorable.

  3. I hadn't realized this was a clear card, which makes it even cooler! And your raindrops are so perfectly formed, such a fun idea :o)

  4. I didn't realize this was a clear card either when I first saw it on the DT Yahoo Group. It is absolutely awesome. I love the glittered rain drops! Great job as always my friend! *Ü*
