Word Play Saturday Challenge - April

Hello and many thanks for stopping by! And a warm welcome to my new followers!
It's time for a new challenge word here on my blog, but before I get to that I'd like to announce last challenge winner first. A random number was chosen using random.org, and the lucky entry was # 40.

That is
 Patty from Hap Scrappy!

For the month of April, I thought the word  

Weather

 was very fitting. Simply create anything inspired by the word weather. It could be sunshine or rain, snow or wind, even a "under the weather" card. Whatever comes to your mind when you hear the word weather.






Sorry my card was late this week, I had two sick kids at the same time with one of them having to stay at the hospital for a few days, and he was left with tons of homework to catch up on over the weekend. So a little later than usual, here is my creation for the challenge.




Products used:
Stamps: Everyday Sayings Notables 4 (whimsy stamps)
Papers: Stampin Up, Neenah
Tools: Umbrella die (whimsy stamps), cuttlebug embossing folder, 1 1/4" circle punch, scallop border punch
Embellishments: ribbon, twine, sticky pearls


Combining this with some other challenges:


Until then, I'll just leave you with a photo of this month's prize which comes from my personal stamp collection, so it has been slightly used.


 If you'd like to play along for a chance to win,  just follow this month's theme and link your creation below.

A few things to remember:
  •  It must be a new creation
  • You may combine this with other challenges
  • You must mention and link this blog when entering the challenge
  • You may enter up to 4 times
  • Would love to have you as a follower if you like my creations, but it is not a requirement
  • You have until May 10th 5pm CST to play along
