Stormy Weather...

Hello!  Today's card features the new umbrella4you set from The Stamps Of Life.  I used the sketch for today's CAS challenge over on SCS for this one.  I kept it one layer.  I used a punched scallop circle and Soft Sky ink (SU) to create the clouds in the background.  The umbrella uses Baja Breeze and Ridinghood Red (SU).  The sentiment is stamped in black. 

Life has been crazy and I have been trying to catch up on some neglected house hold chores.  Not fun, but I have told myself I can not redecorate and re-paint until these things are DONE!  I am excited to re-do my bedroom and master bath, so these grueling tasks are a must.  Do any of you give yourself silly goals like that?  I even will tell myself, "No stamping until you clean the kitchen"!  It keeps me motivated to do the things I dislike so I can get on with the things I love!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Emily

First things first...your card is adorable! And second..absolutely do the same thing when it comes to household chores. Kitchen counters must be wiped off and the floor swept before I can do much of anything!

PS I realize it would be really gross not to wipe down the counters...but really with four boys, I think I could do it every five minutes :)
