January has 5 Thursdays this year, so I get to hostess one more challenge over at the CCEE Stampers, and this time I went with my local weather: U is for Umbrellas
Here in Ireland it rains at this time of year. A lot. Umbrellas are very important. I've had mine out this week more than once! Bonus points if you also bring good raingear along :D, but sunshades and beach umbrellas are also perfectly suitable for the challenge. If you want to join us sheltering under the rain or lying out on beach protecting yourself from the sun, use the keyword if you upload to the gallery here, or use the InLinkz tool on the blog :D.
I have so many umbrella stamps, not to mention a die as well, that it was very hard to make a choice which one to use - but in the end i went with this sweet chick.
