Is everyone enjoying some Spring weather? We sure are - hoping it lasts for a bit. I got my front flower beds cleared and mulched but not the back :(
The challenge this week over on the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog is spring flowers. I wasn't sure at first what I was going to make and then But then it seems the word got out in my daughter's school library that I have a Cricut and might be useful in helping them decorate the bulletin board in the lobby. (My best friend volunteers in there once a week so you can guess how I got tapped to help!)
Anyway, they told me the theme was April Showers bring May Flowers and sent me this pic from Pinterest - PERFECT!
Our board is horizontal not vertical so we had to make a few adjustments....
And here it is! The librarian made the actual rainbow and rain drops but me and my Cricut did the rest. I was a bit limited size wise of course but I thought I had gone big enough. However, once it was put up I do wish I had done it a bit larger by splitting up the words. (I'm sure there will be a next time - I have already been asked for wording for the lunchroom board!)
Here is my garden - almost entirely Cricut cartridge cuts - just the little bugs are SVGs - they were too cute to pass up.
I did my wording in Make the Cut so I could add the umbrella SVG and then make a shadow for the whole thing.
The second portion of wording plus my sun and cloud SVGs - again done in Make the Cut first so I could do the shadow. I am glad I can do them in MTC and then import them into Design Space but I really do wish Design Space would get a shadow feature on it.
I am also including this in the following challenges:
- Kitty Bee Designs - In the Garden
- Fab N Funky - In the Garden
