Yesterday when I was driving home from work, it was lightly raining and the shine was starting to shine through so I was able to see a beautiful rainbow which gave me a smile.  It inspired my "April showers bring may flowers" card to use a background paper that is text with a rainbow print.  I also did a card for Saturated Canary in which the theme is "April Showers" and I used the image Pickles and Ice Cream since I have a baby shower for April.  My cousin Lyndsey for which I made this card and I bought the image especially for her.  I put 3-D crystal lacquer on the ice cream and pickle to give it a  glossy effect.  My third card is a Father's Day card using this weeks Mojo sketch with different mustaches.  I used barber colors.

This image really cracks me up especially with the pickle on her ice-cream, I didn't have any cravings only Pineapple Thick Shakes and I hate milk.........Even her tummy button is sticking out awesome. Great card and thanks for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
