Singing in the rain...

Happy St Patty's day! 
Hope everyone is having a great day. It was beautiful here in MI. Sunny and 64 degrees. Most of the snow is melted and I even had one crocus that has come up in my garden.  One of my favorite things to see, because it means spring is right around the corner. 
On to my card, I used an image from Stamp Fairy-Patsy. She is so cute with her umbrella standing in a puddle.
Well I paper pieced her with some Stampin Up DP- Kiwi Kiss paper. I just happen to have the matching ribbon that I won as a little prize.  I have used Crystal effects on the rain drops and on the puddle.
On another note, you may want to stop back here on Saturday and leave a comment on my post, Sugar Creek Hollow is Celebrating its One year anniversary and I will have some candy to give away.  I believe the whole team will have a little something to give away, be sure to join the hop.

Challenges I have entered this card:
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you on Saturday!

I absolutely LURVE this card!!! Patsy is just adorable (she's my Stamp Fairy fave at the moment), and I love how you've paper pieced her coat and umbrella. The nestie is fab (love it) and the matching ribbon is perfect. I'm not usually keen on green, and have reluctantly had a go on a few green themes myself this week, but I this this is fab. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Annette xx (Stamp Fairy GDT)

LOL! The perfect song and sentiment for you sweet card!!

Your paper piecing is fabulous and I love all the designs you chose for sweet little Patsy. I also love to Paper Piece and think it looks so cute that you matched her umbrella to her rain jacket!!

A perfect card for our "Green Challenge" -- Good luck to you and we hope to see you again on Monday for another new and very FUN challenge!!

Happy Crafting,

PS: We have had far too much rain here, so I'm hoping for a very sunny Spring!!
