Slugs and Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails.....

April went by so quickly.  It is hard to believe that it is May already.  They say that April showers bring May flowers...well, I don't know about where  you live, but the flowers here in NJ are starting to bloom.  Trees have buds that are opening up into small leaves...creating a canopy that will soon provide shade.  The weather isn't sure if it wants to warm up are remain a little cool.  Soon I will be able to go out on my deck and read in the warm sunlight. 

When I saw this little boy stamp, it brought memories of my son, playing in the puddles.  It also reminded me of my husband.  He is like a little kid at times, and would think nothing about jumping in a mud puddle and splashing all over.   The stamp set is a from S.W.A.L.K. called "Slugs and Snails"  I used some Gelatos to color him in, painting everything.  For the grass, I just scribble some greens and gold and blended them lightly.  I hope you enjoy this card.
