I'm a Guest Bartender

Woohoo!  What'll you have?  A fancy drink with a little umbrella, a shot and a chaser or maybe just a draft.  Oh, don't get me started on beer, there's only about a gazillion of them.  Bar tending was possibly the most fun job I ever had.   I suppose if you consider being on design teams work then this is the most fun job in the world. 

Raise the Bar picked my Painting Eggs post as one of their top 3 cards which means I could be a guest bartender.  Sounded like fun to me and it is.  The challenge is "April Showers" make a card depicting any kind of weather.  Obviously I didn't go with the showers.  It's those beautiful sunny days I decided to celebrate and isn't this Pure Innocence stamp just the perfect image for this celebration.  What weather will you celebrate?  Whatever you choose you can find all the challenge details and the linky tool by clicking here.
