Hi there peeps, here I am with my next DT card for Crafty Calendar. This month our theme is April Showers or Spring. My mind did a bit of a left turn when I was going to do a right turn and I ended up with a pair of love(ly) owls on a branch with an umbrella - I was definitely up on Planet Susie when I thought of this methinks! Do love the image though, it's from one of our sponsors this month, Sheepski Designs.
It's a great image (see below) and I was going to colour it but decided to do something different and did some paper-piecing instead just to make the owls into little fun characters. I do think they look sweet with their googly eyes. I've popped my watermark over the top of this image by Andrea to protect it.

Sorry this is such a short post (scheduled from yesterday) but I am just off to do some much needed ironing - and we all know how much I adore that job. Would have started it earlier but the electricity had to be turned off (for flippin' ages) while we had some work carried out. Oh well it's done now thank goodness.
Catch you all again very soon, thanks for stopping by and checking out my card, can't wait to see you over at the Crafty Calendar Challenge.
Take care and lots of big hugs to you all.
