April Showers

Where I live, this week's showers have been of the solid white variety! With a little freezing rain thrown in, just for fun. But eventually (being APRIL and all) there will be rain showers, and Edna wants you to be prepared. 

U is for Umbrella! Seems like a straightforward enough prompt, but I'm not the only Snarky Sister that took a bit of a left turn with this:

The card itself is not particularly snarky, but I thought turning an umbrella challenge into a drinking card was snarky enough. ;) Once the idea jumped into my brain, this was an easy card to put together, with a little die-cutting, a little scoring, stamping and embossing a sentiment and adding a couple of embellishments. 
Speaking of snarky, it's always fun to add something CAS to the Simon Says Stamp challenge, so I will link this to the current challenge A Trio of Something.
I think you'll enjoy the various interpretations of this prompt you'll see on the challenge blog today, including that of our current Queen of Snark, Michelle! I hope you can join us. 

Supplies: white, blue, yellow & pink cardstock, patterned paper scraps (including the green panel), Paper Smooches Free Spirits stamp, Versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts sparkle embossing powder, Paper Smooches Free Spirits Icons dies, Nuvo ebony crystal drops, foam tape

Pin It Now!

Wish I'd gone the cocktail umbrella route myself! Jo x

Great minds think alike-I may have to get that Paper Smooches set! Love the embossing also!

Great left turn....I almost did a right turn and did a sun umbrella but decided with a bit of snark I went regular. Super card.
