Happy Friday everyone!! The weekend is upon us!! Woo hoo!! It looks like rain for the next three days but oh is the weekend!! Guess it just forces me to stay inside and clean my house and make cards or projects!!! Woo hoo!!
Well today is Friday so it is time for another Wags n Whiskers Challenge!! This week my oh so talented dt sister and Wags n Whiskers co-owner Lacey is asking you to:

Use Ribbon on your card or paper project
How easy it that? ..... so no excuses not to play along with us!

To play our challenges you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp.... or...... Digi as your main image to be entered into the prize drawing.
If you don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers, then it's time to go shopping. You can pick up your rubber here.... or for those who like almost instant gratification.... Digi's HERE.

Here is my take on the challenge!! Since there are so many challenges out there with April Showers bring May flowers, I thought I would use the darling Love You Sis image from Wags n Whiskers illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. For some extra fun, I decided to paper piece it with some of my fave Basic Grey Paper Lily Kate!! This image is very appropriate for today's weather! LOL!The yummy flowers are available at Lacey's Stamp and create store here (Lemon trellis big rose) and here (Smaller rose).
