Row Changito Row

It's April 5th.... that means it's time for the Crafty Gals (a blog group that I am fortunate to be part of) to post their montly creations. Each month one of the members serves as hostess, which means she comes up with the theme.

Diane is the hostess this month. This is her challenge:

"April Showers bring May Flowers"

Since April is supposed to be a rainy month in most of the country, I thought we would try a "water" challenge. My challenge to you is to incorporate water in some way on your card. It can be rain, puddles, ocean, sea, beach, lake, bathtub or anything else you can think of. In addition to the water, I want you to use ribbon, brads and patterned paper on your card. I can't wait to see your creations and I hope you all enjoy this month's challenge.

I had so much fun splashing in the water!

Actually, what I had most fun doing was making waves! I used a 1" circle punch and randomly punched to make the waves.

Be sure to check out the other Crafty Gals "WET" creations today. You'll find links to their blogs in my left sidebar!
