Umbrella Weather

I've been a little run down with the flu lately.  I've got to admit I've sort of enjoyed Mr. J coming home and taking care of me this week.   He's been taking care of dinner and making sure that my tea glass is full! I'm starting to think about that big Easter dinner I'm supposed to cook.  Hopefully I'll be back in action by then and maybe a little help with that too?  LOL!  My son's girlfriend is a vegetarian - so any tips for dishes in that department would be appreciated too.  I'm Polish and no one leaves our table hungry!   Of course we will have some of the traditional things like ham and rye bread, but I'm flexible with the rest! 

I wanted to play along with the challenge at CASology this week. - the cue word is Weather.  And since I am under the weather, and YES it is RAINING here in the Chicago area the challenge seems perfect.

I swear .. this started out totally clean - the top panel only.. but then I cut it down so I could adhere it to a card base.. and I think I left the margins way too wide because it looked so empty and lonely! 
My brilliant idea .. to stamp some water splashes all along the edge of the card base.  Seems perfect with the umbrella right? 
I had so much fun stamping all those splats that I got lost and almost forgot I wasn't feeling so good!  What a great diversion!

 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
