You can stand under my umberella, ella, ella, eh eh eh

So I was washing the dishes, like a good wife. There were 4 dishes that needed to be hand washed, and all the rest were in the dishwasher. For some reason, the spout on my kitchen sink decided to come loose from its socket. It would have been great if someone else had been doing the dishes. Not me.

All of a sudden the spout came loose and water started shooting from the faucet, straight up into the air. I was soaking wet, as was the ceiling and everything on the counter (which luckily wasn't much since I was almost done!), but my boys thought it was very funny!

So once I dried off I finished this card, which I decided to make because of my lack of an umbrella. I love these colors together, and I hope you enjoy them too!

Wow! Both this card and yesterday's Rubber Romance are so chic! Okay, the whole unplanned shower thing would be so irritating, but I love your blog post title. I was so laughing.
