When it rains ........ we have the DDD! ♥

"When it rains, I share my umbrella ...
If I have no umbrella, I share my rain."

Isn't that the sweetest!

I hope you all had a beautiful Valentine's Day with your loved ones ♥
It's the 15th of the month and that means the Dueling Darlings
post our cards that we've made with the chosen theme from our hostesses:
LJ and Darlene are up this month.
And their theme ...

Our theme this month is Umbrellas!
Believe it or not, National Umbrella Day is February 10th.
Darlene and LJ thought it would be fun to think Spring,
since we've seen too much white stuff this winter.
 Even though I have a love of snow and winter and all that white stuff,
this was one super cute theme!
Here is my contribution using some of the gorgeous papers sent from LJ
as well as ribbons, lovely clouds and BUTTONS!!!!
I cut out a small circular pattern in the paper to let the sun/sky/cloud
paper peek through.
The image is Sophie from Whipper Snapper Designs ♥
Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the DDD have created
with our umbrella cards this month ~
you can find them in my sidebar.
Thanks LJ and Darlene for your gorgeous and fun kits this month!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
