U is for Umbrella


' U',  is the new letter to use for the Alpha Challenge over at the Craft Barn.
I think like many folk I may have used the word Umbrella. There was not much choice in my dictionary that suited the craft items I own.
 So, out comes Mr Umbrella Man yet again. Together with some Spellbinders and Memory box die cuts , the trusty Vintage Photo distress  ink  pad , these are  the pages I ended up with.
The background is a variety of masks, including one with snowflakes, again I used distress inks Broken China and Tumbles Glass.
The words are from a Sheena Douglas Stamp set and not so clear with the inks smudged over them read-
Into every life a little Rain must fall,
Call me any time you need an umbrella.

Thank you all for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.
