You can stand under my Umbrella, ella....

I don't think you can't be a hearing person on this planet and not know the song I'm referring to --Umbrella by Rihanna. I choose to listen to contemporary Christian music, but with teenagers in my world, it's hard to miss certain songs as they change the station on my car radio. The song is very catchy but have you ever really stopped and listened to the words?

Here is the chorus:

When the sun shines, we'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella.

You can stand under my umbrella.

I computer generated the sentence on the front and wrote this chorus on the inside.
ETA: Stamps:Bear (Penny Black)
Card stock: More Mustard , not sure about the purple
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
Other: New Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Floral Fantasy ( Provo Craft), Ticket corner punch

On a Personal Note:
The image with the lady bug was a little hard for me to color after my lady bug fiasco this fall. We still have a couple left alive in the house. Most of them have died. The problem is some of them are dead in places that are impossible for me to get to.... it gives me the creeps thinking about all that got in here...
OK. I NEED to do some cleaning today. I've been neglecting some projects simply because I didn't feel like doing it. One of my favorite movies (Hope Floats with Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick Jr) is coming on TV in a few minutes, so I think I'll fold clothes etc while watching it. We bought our first new bedroom set (in 20 years) It's been here for 4 days now and I still have to fill the empty drawers.

My husband took my daughter to the college visit. We decided to send the 10th grader along instead of me. I get to stay here with the boys...

Here's to a productive day. I'm hoping to get to my C challenge later today. --Didn't I say that the other day??? Since my dinner is already cooked for tonight I just might make it happen today. Have a blessed day!
