April Showers Bring May Flowers Blog Hop

Welcome to the "April Showers Bring May Flowers" Blog Hop! 

We're so happy you could join us today! 

You should have arrived from Vanessa.  If you happened by my blog or are joining me from your dashboard, head over to Miranda's blog to start at the beginning.  We don't want you to miss any of the fun!

Should you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up: 

We will be showcasing spring-like projects or projects with a rain or flower theme! In addition to seeing a lot of awesome creations, there is some blog candy available too.  Miranda will be giving away a gift card from either Michael's or JoAnn's (winner's choice).  To be eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the hop and leave a comment!  The winner will be announced Wednesday, April 24th on Miranda's blog!

My project is a little door knob hanging with the intent of cheering up someone who needs an extra boost.  I'm betting you all know somebody who could use a bit of tender care.  I used a paper piecing from PPbN and fussy cut this little "Mary Poppins" character; then I fussy cut some colorful paper for her umbrella, her hat, scarf, and purse to give a bit of old-fashioned color.  My Star Dust gel pen came out for some fine detailing here and there. plus a few Stickles.  

The sentiment is computer-generated.  I punched a hole at the top of the umbrella and used our LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon for the door-knob tie and an extra bow at the base of her paw.

Until the sun comes out
Again for you
My umbrella is
Big enough for two.......
