In Germany we say “April, April, der macht was er will“ which means the weather in April is capricious. It could be rainy or sunny almost like summer time. “April showers bring May flowers” is the American adage. And this card suits to both Countries! This card is very simple to make and has a surprising illusion effect.

I was asked to make an April Showers card, but misread the April part of the email so I decided that it would be an April BABY Shower card! I mean really – how adorable are those baby animals with their Pico embellished umbrellas?!? I just don’t know what I did before the Pico was invented. Now I use it on almost every card! See how easy it is to get hooked on the Pico Embellisher making your own card.

“April Showers” in the Southern Hemisphere are slightly different than those in the Northern hemisphere – we are heading from summer to Autumn/Fall and April Showers are more than welcome but bring with them a reminder that we are heading to cooler tempertures and…rain! Make a splash and create your own card!

After a long, cold winter here in New England the thought of Spring flowers is a little ray of hope and sunshine in all of our lives!
