Dueling Darlings - April

April Showers!  It is the theme for the April duel for the Dueling Darlings at SCS.  Boy, we have had a few showers here.   Spring has sprung, for sure!

Barb is the hostess for the Diva group.  We received an image from one of her favorite stamp companies, Whipper Snapper Design.  the image name is Umbrella & Slicker.

There was so much to create with in the kit!  I liked the larger umbrellas in this DP.  Oh and Kelly, I used a button!  Thank you for the kit, Barb.

So in addition to the spring rain, we have this crazy Robin that is driving me nuts.  An American songbird my.....   He keeps flying to the windows and pecking them.  I finally closed the shutters and he went away.  I tried to be nice and not tell him he is really fat!  Yep, back the next day on a different window.  Closed the shutters and he went away.  Today he went to every window for two hours.  I am trying to work at home and I have a fat robin pecking my windows.  He went away and came back with a friend!!!!  Robin and I had to have a talk.  I told him 'Listen Robin, I am on a conference call and you need to take your friend and chill."  No joke, he left.

I'll stick to umbrellas, thanks!

Well Miss T...where do I start??? With the beautiful coloring and fussy cutting to set the image against perfectly contrasting DP?? Oh wait, there's your perfect choice of colors from matting the wonderful DP background panel. But then there's the button and heart accents, placed just-so...Sigh...

You have a very insistent robin! Don't let him in.

You must have a yard full of juicy worms, and the Big Robin is coming to tell you thank You! LOL That is so funny. Your card is delightful- the image is so sweet and I really love the layout you used. Love our Dp's as well!

So cute, Tami! Love your robin story. I had a bird fly int our picture window today. They knock themselves silly and then fly away after they've regained their senses. But it is annoying. I love how you colored the image. Just adorable!
