Paws and Enjoy the Moment

It's Brenda's turn to host at Little Red Wagon and she's encouraging us to celebrate April Showers. Anything with rainbows, rain boots, rain clouds or even umbrellas is welcome as part of the challenge.


I have had a very busy week as my husband was rushed to hospital on the 10th and will be there for at least another week. I wondered if I would even have a project for today but am doing my best to take time for myself in the midst of all the running around. I'm glad I did! It was peaceful to play with some new goodies which recently arrived from Simon Says Stamp. I've also got some projects lined up for Your Next Stamp and will be working on a couple for CropStop too. It's good to have creative distractions!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created, and then link up your own April Showers creation!

Glad you were able to grab some craft time for yourself. Well wishes for your hubby.

I love your use of the grid paper for the sky, and that little puppy is adorable.
