Long Rainy Trip But I'm Home

On April 4th I flew to southern California to be with grandchildren for a week.  The weather was beautiful all week.  In fact, this white skin got some color.  On April 12 I headed home but this time by car.  That morning was cold and we drove through rain, breaks, rain, breaks all the way to Oregon.  The sun shone again and was beautiful the rest of the trip.  I am so glad to be home even though today it turned cold and rainy again. But very typical for our Springs.  Some of the card challenges this week include elements of rain or April showers.  How appropriate since I have some cards to make and send out .  For my first card, I used a colored digital by Pink Gem. I added a little more coloring for contrast and some liquid pearls to the buttons. Isn't she cute?
Black butterfly is Martha Stewart punch.  Raindrop DP is digital paper by Doodle Pantry.
