Flower Umbrellas

     Really short post this morning because I forgot to get it scheduled last night, and now I'm running short of time before a meeting I have to attend.  Fortunately, this one is pretty self-explanatory.  House Mouse image (Flower Power challenge theme); hand-torn paper, pearl swirls and pearl flowers, leaves are die cut.


I used the sketch from The Outlawz.


     Those of us in the West who are surrounded by nearly 100 fires blazing away in the three coastal states are praying for rain and a reason to get out our umbrellas.

Thanks for joining our Flower Power challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #201!

Love these meecies splashing in the rain...we sure could use some here in Oregon and Washington. I have fires all around me and the smoke looks like a low foggy day...bad stuff. Thanks for the good thoughts!
