"A New ACEO for The ACEO Challenge"

Hi all!  It's been a bit since I have made an original ACEO so I decided to take on this month's ACEO Challenge with its theme of "April Showers".  I have additionally taken on a challenge from my hubby to draw a picture of our little miniature pinscher, "Danny Boy".  Drawing animals is, in itself, a very big challenge to me so I have really made a concerted effort to study Danny Boy and finally came up a small illustration that I will actually share.  Bear in mind that Danny Boy loves flowers (he is always burying his little nose into any flowers he finds on his travels) but its "I'm out of here" when it comes to showers!  That said, it took a real act of courage by him to pose for this illustration, he hopes you appreciate his efforts.

This little ACEO is titled "April Showers Bring Sweet Flowers"

May you always have
Love to Share,
Health to Spare,
And Friends who Care!

Hi Karen Anne! Danny Boy is so sweet! He looks like he is actually enjoying the April Showers!

LOL! That lil' guy hates water! His sister will be out in the water (at the coast) chasing down gulls while he stands in the grass barking at her to get out!

This is so cute, I think you have found your muse here ;) Just wondering if you received a delayed envelope from Australia recently, I posted when I sent my nieces B-Day present & she said she hasn't got hers so thought I better follow up? This gorgeous aceo reminded me ;) Good luck in the Challenge!!!

Hi Shelle! Thanks for stopping by! No package from Australia yet ... but will be looking for it now! You'll be the first to know when it arrives!
Will you be submitting an entry in The ACEO Challenge? Hope so! Thanks for the wish of "Luck"!
