Yay! I'm pleased to say I'm all ready for April! Although it is supposedly British summertime, it still feels decidedly un-spring like here up north. My daffodils are not yet in flower, there is no sign of any frogspawn in the pond and we have had lots of rain, high winds and even thunder and lightening this week. So, I opted to prepare my April page using the old saying 'April showers bring forth May flowers'.
If you're still in the calendar challenge, leave a comment here so I can visit your blog and take a peek. 3 months down, only 9 to go LOL!
For April I just couldn't resist using this litle guy by Stampotique again, but this time I drew him an umbrella:
The flower stamp is by Hero Arts, and the grungy, scratchy background is from the King of all things inky, Tim Holtz. I just love the grungy effect you can achieve with his background stamps:
The letters are by Paper Artsy:
And here is March finished:
If you should happen to read the small print (and I really can't blame you if you don't!) then you will see that I have an unexpected day off work today. I woke up this morning with no voice. None at all, not even a squeak. Not great if you are a teacher (although my class probably think that me losing my voice is the best thing that could happen to them). My own children have already worked out that they can be naughty because Mummy can't tell them off.......hmmmm......
Anyway, what's a girl to do on an unexpected day off work? The washing? No. The ironing? No. Vacuum the house? No. Tidy up the garden? Don't be silly. I can feel some inky fingers coming on......!
Bye for now.
