I'm Back!!! Sassy Cheryl's Challenge April Showers

It's Tuesday and that means it is time for another fantastic Sassy Cheryl's Challange and the hostess this week is the super talented, Jeni, who chose the theme April Showers.  I had a few issues finding an  image but in my fun loving style I chose the Little Land Swimmers:

I colored the image with copic markers and added glossy accents to the puddle and raindrops.

I sponged around the outside edge with distress ink and mounted it on SU cs.  The added embellishments are a MS punched fence a orange and white checked gingham ribbon with hand tied bow airbrushed to match the distressed the border.  A trio of dew drops adorns the upper right hand corner,

I want you to know that after nearly 2 months of not being able to color,  create a card, or post to my blog it feels SOOOOOO good to be back.  Thanks to all my bloggy friends for not deserting me in my absense and to the best Sassy Boss Lady Cheryl for hanging in there with me through it all and waiting for my return.  Gotta love that gal, even if she picks on me something terrible LOL.

I know for a fact that Cheryl has been working on some adorable new images that will be perfect for this challenge so I think I am going to get over to the store to check them out. 
Be sure you stop by the Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the DT creations and remember when you enter the challenge you can only enter once and it doesn't have to be a Sassy Cheryl's image but they are so darn cute why wouldn't you ?!?

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.
