Happy Tuesday!  Popping in with a card to share.  It has been a rainy cloud covered day.  The thunderstorm system coming through has brought with it  COLD temperatures.     I just spent Saturday putting away winter clothing and breaking out the spring and summer clothes.  Oh, well!    Oh, the bright side, when it is rainy out, it is a fabulous time to craft!

As always thanks  so much for stopping by!
