They say that April showers bring May flowers.  Anyone else ready for all things spring...other than the allergies that come along with it, at least?  I just finished planting a bunch of plants in our landscaping in our backyard and I can't wait to dive in and fill up our containers, too.  It's definitely one of my favorite "spring things" to do!
Just like no one likes reading a ton of yapping on a recipe blog, I'm guessing you're not here to read about my garden.  With that said, I will get right to our monthly STOCK YOUR STASH challenge...

From Ali Farmer...
My card today could really be used for such a variety of reasons, although I thought given its modern youthfull feel it would be great for a graduate. I used the wonderful You Matter stamp and die sets and a sentiment from Chalk It Up, along with my favorite Stitched Rays Cover Panel.

I began the card by using the cover panel to emboss 2 pieces of white cardstock and using the circle die that comes with the You Matter dies to cut an appeture in one piece. I cut another circle slightly larger from the other piece to sit behind the hands.

I stamped and coloured the hands with copic markers in rainbow colours and added jewelry and details with a Copic Multiliner. I used the corresponding die to cut the middle from the hands and trimmed the outsides with scissors. I adhered the hands behind the front piece and used 3 D foam on the back. I lined up the stitched lines with the 2nd circle piece and adhered all to a white cardbase.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink and punched a circle, adhering it to the centre of the hands.
Such a wonderful, bright and cheerful card with a youthful feel!
Make sure you tag your creations and join in the fun for this month, we love to see all your creations!

Happy April!  It's a new Stock Your Stash, Moms, Dads & Grads!  I decided to design my Mom's Mother's Day card:

I wanted to feature the new Lily of the Valley set.  That bouquet is so pretty!  It's been stamped with copic friendly black ink and colored with the following colors:
YG00 | YG01
V01 | V12 | BG23

The sentiment is from The Lily of the Valley set along with the die cut Mom from Mom & Dad Word Duos.
I combined the new Along the Dotted Lines and Double Stitch Window Cover Panels.

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!
