Okay, for those in areas that have winter...hopefully you are now having spring.  And in April you usually think of rain showers.  Regardless of what area you live in though, we all should have rain sometimes {well, unless you are in a desert}.

Anyway,  our Cards in Envy challenge this time is for A2 CARDS that feature "April Showers"--rain, rain drops, rain clouds, umbrellas etc.

For inspiration, our Designers have once again created this lovely group of A2 cards...
