Trash or Treasure?

     It's the first Friday in April and I simply can't believe how fast 2015 is moving along!  Friday means a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this week our theme is "April Showers."  The possibilities with that theme are endless.  I decided to see if  I could find an image that was seemingly unrelated (meaning no baby ducks, umbrellas, or cloudy skies) and then work the theme into it.  What do you think?  I used an image (Digi 7102 "One Man's Trash") and an inside sentiment (Digi 16411) which are both from QKR Stampede.

     The snail image is colored with ProMarkers and mounted onto a sea blue card front.  That front sentiment is mine.  I used blue gems to make the raindrops.  I printed the QKR sentiment onto paper and added some aqua lace before adhering it to the inside of the card.  A simple card with a delightfully CAS design.

     I absolutely love this silly card, mostly because of that crazy snail.  Don't you just love his expression?  I'm thinking of using this same image for some kind of tea party or coffee klatch card, but with different sentiments, of course.  :-D

     I really hope we're going to see you playing along this week.  Remember, you can use any image by any company but if you use a QKR image, you'll be entered into a separate drawing just for those who have used QKR stamps.  That increases your chances of winning by quite a lot!  See you at QKR Stampede.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

My Dad used to dislike the rain very much and wore that same expression when we had to go out in it. Thanks for bringing that thought to the forefront on my mind this morning. Very cute card and I love the color of your gems and the top ones look like rain, nice job. Have a wonderful Friday.
