April Showers Full of Flowers Blog Hop - Day 1

If you're looking for the Rockin' Robin blog hop, click HERE

Welcome to My Cricut Craftroom's April Showers Full of Flowers blog hop!
On the first day we will show you a project with the 'April Showers' theme, and on the second day we will either transform our original project into a "Full of Flowers" project, or make a matching item with the "Full of Flowers" theme. 

The lovely Erica's Craftroom is sponsoring this blog hop with a Cricut Mini Machine! Be sure to comment on ALL of the blogs both days to be entered to win the Cricut Mini!
For my project using the 'April Showers' theme, I made this cute and simple rainy day card using a combination of the 3 Birds on Parade, April Showers, and Create a Critter cartridges.
The bird with the umbrella is cut at 3.5" from the 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge. 'April Showers' is cut at 1.5" from the April Showers cartridge. The cloud is from the Create A Critter cartridge, I don't remember the exact size, but probably somewhere around 2" and the buttons on the bottom were added for a raincoat effect.

You're next stop is Kathy's blog! :)

In case you get lost along the way, here is the entire lineup for you:

Make sure to come back tomorrow to see my project as well as the projects made by the others in the hop! :)
