ATC Swap issues

So there is a swap I want to be in at the LSS for "April Showers" Themed ATC's. I tried my cutsie little rain cloud and I wasn't feeling it so...
I decided to just make it raining on this tree I LOVE by Eat Cake Graphics. That was ok, but in the same case I keep this tree was...
This little guy and I felt that lately we are having such a drought that this was appropriate because it's about all the showers my grass will be getting..

Then...

I felt he needed company. So I gave him something to be giving his shower to. I really ment it to be cute, but it just looked mean so I added the eyebrow line in a scowl look so he was a mean kid.

This made me think...



What other trouble could this kid get into... Well this won't be the end of his story, I need to make a total of 6 of these. I may make 3 more with the boy and just have them be a collection. I mean each person will just get one, but I could make a note that they can find the full story here right?

And that's how an innocent swap about rain became a kid standing on a dog spraying a chair with a garden hose...

Doggie stamp - Unknown. All other stamps Eat Cake Graphics. Sky in tree ATC is done with watercolor crayons, all other coloring with prismacolor pencils. All stamped on Bristol Smooth paper. Glossy Accents added to water.
