Welcome Spring

 Grab Our Blinky!

I am so excited to be a guest I-Teamer over at Words 2 Craft by today.  I have to thank the lovely women over at W2CB, for selecting my project in February and extending me an invitation to be a guest I-Teamer for the April challenge.
The inspiration quote is: 
Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns and shadow of April showers.   Byron Caldwell Smith

I kept seeing an image of a spring umbrella festooned with flowers.  I used Simon Says Stamp Tiny flowers die, and their new felt. The umbrella is a wood veneer piece by freckled fawn, I colored with white pencil before attaching the flowers and gems.

Stop by the  Words 2 Craft by  blog to see what the I-Teamers have put together for inspiration. In addition to the fabulous I Teamer's inspirations there are two prizes up for grabs. If you don't already follow, consider it. There will be one follower  of the challenge and one participant in the challenge randomly selected for a Paper Smooches gift certificate.  The winning entry will be invited to be a Guest designer for a future challenge.

 Thanks for stopping by!
