When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Happy Squigglefly Morning, Everyone

Today is Monday, my team's turn to produce paper wonders for the Squigglefly Challenge of the week. Very appropriate theme today: Spring Showers/May Flowers. We're having magnificent weather today, with the exception of the Santa Ana winds, which send gusts of  hot, dusty air blowing around, sucking moisture out of the ground with each blast. It's a day when the real flowers have to be carefully watched. I've been known to dash out with hose in hand for an emergency watering on many occasions. Fortunately, that is now my son's job and he's doing just great! He's starting to get an eye for some really nice arrangements and I'm lovin' it. So, to celebrate the approach of summer, I used all Squigglefly images. The daisies are from their Flower Set (I used Flower #2), and Paper Patterns Backgrounds (using Spring Paper). If the layout looks familiar, it is a total CASE of a card made by Lee Conrey which I thought was really stunning in it's simplicity. I added a black velvet bow, made a few minor changes and came up with my own version. Hope you like it and that you'll join us in this May Flowers Challenge. All supplies can be found at the Squigglefly shop and don't forget, there are lots of freebies for download there, too. Please play along, have fun and have a great week.
