April blog hop!



Welcome to our next blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  
Isn't this blog hop button perfect for our theme, April Showers bring May Flowers?  
Barb does a super great job with making them for our blog hops....How did you like the other awesome projects from the other bloggers?  They just seem to get better and better!

Since My Digital Studio will be going bye-bye soon, I wanted to showcase it before that happens....So I bought instant downloads of shower-type items and umbrellas....Here in Arizona we use our umbrellas as shade from the sun and get our showers from the lawn sprinklers lol!
Here is my digital card:
