CCEE1405, U is for Umbrellas



Well, this is the end of the month and Sabrina's last challenge.   Didn't she do an awesome job!  Great challenges, Sabrina...thanks!

Sabrina lives in Ireland and says that it rains there at this time of year....a lot!  She says umbrellas are very important.  You will get bonus points if you also add good rain  gear,  You can also use sunshades (sunglasses here in the U.S.) and beach umbrellas.  BTW, Sabrina, April is our rainy month and it was such fun to learn more about Ireland!

I found this poem on the internet under "poems about rain", but cannot find out who the author was.  Thought it went well with my lady (she had an unfolded umbrella at her side, but I cut that off so I could use my umbrella die.  Then, I made another umbrella and turned it upside down and filled it with flowers.  

Won't you join us?  Please add CCEE1405 to your keywords on splitcoaststampers and link your card back to the CCEE Blog

Good job at researching that poem. It goes so well with your rainy-day lady!

Oh - almost every month is rainy here!
I love your pieced umbrella - it reminds me of a wonderful umbrella shop we always go and admire when we're in Paris. It's the perfect stylish accessory for your lady in blue. I love your upturned umbrella full of flowers, too.
