Pile It On #17 - April Showers bring May Flowers

This week we're making it extra easy for you to "pile on the challenges" with a currently popular theme: April Showers bring May Flowers. Let's see those flowers, raindrops, or however you interpret the theme.

We are sponsored this week by Gingerloft Digi Stamps, and one lucky participant will win 3 digi stamps of their choice!
I am Tami, owner of Gingerloft. I draw all of the new digital stamps that we offer. Older stamp designs were once rubber stamp designs I own but then turned them into Digital stamps. I love drawing animals and scenes. Gingerloft has a large array of digital stamps to fit everyone's needs. We also have a Challenge Blog.

Here's some inspiration from our Design Team, featuring images by Gingerloft:
