Sunnier Days

It is a beautiful Good Friday.  The sun is shining brightly and the birds are chirping outside my craft window.  The kitties can't decide which window to watch from this beautiful day.  Well I will start off with pics of Lucy.  She is the baby of the kitties.  She is also the smallest of the three and the only calico.  I was getting rid of some clutter (spring cleaning, ya' know) and she decided to play in the box of tissue paper that I was trying to organize.

"Mom do you have to keep taking my picture."  She was a bit challenged by all the flashes. 
I was trying to get a sheet of tissue out of the box and Lucy just had a fit.  In this pic we are at an impass.  I can't get tissue and she can't get rid of me.  This next pic is Lucy watching me from a totally cleared out box.  "Mom, I am so glad we get that tissue squared away."  Me too Lucy!

How about a card?  This was a quickie today.  I already had the little umbrella cut and assembled.  I used paper from my stash for this card.  Other areas of our country are praying that NO MORE rain comes their way.  Here in North Texas we are experiencing lots of wildfires.  Some areas are praying for MORE rain.  This card voices that sentiment.  This is also in celebration of Earth Day.
