The full story of the boy with the hose!

Once there was a little boy with a garden hose. Don't ask me why they gave him a garden hose, you will have to take that up with the artists at Eat Cake Graphics! I KNEW it would be a bad idea...
First thing he does is give his doggie a bone to keep it still while he stood on it's head to water the couch. He was trying to help by cleaning, but as you can tell by the look on his face he was a little naughty too...
He got sent outside with is hose (a good idea if you ask me!) where he watered the dog. Poor doggie didn't seem to like it...
The dog ran away and the little boy was trying so very hard to be good. He decided to water the yard instead.
A few days of that and flowers sprung up!
Now there is nothing that attacts balancing pigs like a garden hose! This gave the little boy an idea...
And he sure was right! Farm animals love water, just look at this chicken playing in the pool!
And that's the story of the little boy with the garden hose.
These are my creations for the "April Showers" themed swap at the LSS. The flowers are SU from the Loads of Love set, the Doggie is unknown to me (if you know by all means share with the group!) All other stamps are by Eat Cake Graphics. I colored with Prismacolor Markers. I drew in the eyebrows on the little boy and a few of the grass marks and other accent marks as I felt they were needed. I used Glossy Accents by Ranger on the water.
