An Umbrella



We have needed an Umbrella more days than I can remember this year. I guess I shouldn't be complaining as we needed it.

So about my card. My DD, Crystal, had a wedding shower this past weekend given by some lovely ladies from her fiance's family. They did an awesome job. Everything was wonderful! In the middle of the room, they had a pretty clear umbrella hanging from the ceiling with beautiful decorations inside. It covered the punch table. Crystal asked me to make some thank you cards for the hostesses so I decided to go with umbrellas.

The image is by Cheryl Alger and is called Sam's Rainy Day. It is available at Squigglefly. I love the look on her face - so sweet. The papers on my card are from the Lacey Grace stack by Glitz and from SU!. I love the wild green animal print - it is so Crystal (of course she also asked me to make all the thank you cards - I think I am making them in my sleep)!

Hugz to all - hope your week is going well! If you have some extra time, please come by and help me with these cards - LOL!
