Crafty Calendar April Challenge "Sunshine and Showers"

Hi Everyone, Welcome to Crafty Calendars April Challenge!

I hope you all had a lovely easter and had great fun rolling those eggs!
What a gorgeous turn out of cards you created last month for the our Eggstravaganza Challenge.
Its lovely to see all the fresh spring pastels after the awful dull weather we have had here in the UK for the last month or so.

Lets pick a winner from last month  who will win the amazing prize from Misheflo Creative Crafting
Random.org has chosen....

Congrats Gail! Your card is gorgeous! Please send me your postal address and i will arrange to have your prize posted out to you!
Thanks for joining in with us! Please find the winners badge in the sidebar to wear on your blog!

Now for the Top 3 chosen by our Design Team!

Melissa Bove - Check out these eggs!

Congratulations girls, Your creations are gorgeous! Thanks for taking part in our challenge!

Now onto the new challenge for April.

This month the theme is ..
Sunshine and showers!
We simply want to see those creations that are related to rain or sunshine. I am sure here in the UK we will have plenty inspiration from our weather.

We are also looking for a few new DT members to join our little family. If your interested then please add DT after your name when linking your entry or you can email me direct. My email address can be found in the sidebar. Details of  DT requirements are in the page "DT Call Info.
The DT Call will close on 20th April 2013!

Now back to the challenge. We have a brand new sponsor to Crafty Calendar this month but not new to all us crafters...

The winner will receive 3 digi stamps of your choice from the MilkCoffee store!
If you have never been over to the store then make it a must. You won't be disappointed!

MilkCoffee kindly offered all our Design Team digital stamps to work with for 
the challenge and here is what they have created...

Now its over to you! We can't wait to see your creations! 
We do try to get round to commenting on all the entries but over the past few months we have not been getting round everyone. We do look at each and every entry and all are entered for a shot at winning our prize!

Here is the usual reminders.....

Please make sure you leave a link to your blog post and not just your blog and that 'Crafty Calendar Challenge' is linked in your post. Please only link to new entries as it isn't fair to back link to older posts.

 Any cards linked not meeting the above requirements will be removed and you will not be eligible for any of the fantastic prizes offered by our sponsors!

Also please remember that only 3 entires per person will be accepted 

This challenge will close on Friday 3rd May at 8pm and the winner will be announced the following day when the new challenge is posted.
