Mama said there'll be days like this...

Welcome to the first Sentimental Sundays Challenge for April! Are you ready for another month of great challenges? Today's challenge is spring inspired...we want to see creations inspired by one thing that all creation needs to blossom and grow during springtime--WATER! We want you to feature water in some way on your creation--and as always make sure you include a sentiment!

Our sponsor for this week is the fabulous

One lucky participant will win a gift certificate to her delightful digi shop!

I have several water related images that I could have used for today's challenge--but I went with my favorite...good ole' Sourpuss!

I mean, what's not to love about that poor kitty?!! He's one of my favorite Paper Makeup Stamps characters--and THAT is no small feat! I was inspired by the gatefold card on page 56 of the March 2011 CardMaker Magazine. I used the color combo of Kraft, Basic Grey and More Mustard because it was just a rainy day combination! I used the "out of the box" cutting technique for the image and opted on twine instead of ribbon. The sentiment is from the Feelin' Groovy set by Verve and perfect for this poor kitty's situation! LOL!

I hope you will join us in our Water themed challenge for Sentimental Sundays. To enter your creations, just visit TODAY'S POST and add it to Mr. Linky. If you are uploading to Splitcoast, you can add the tag sentimentalsundays49.
