Dale Tiernan - Umbrella Birthday Card

Thanks Shazza.  Here is my submission for Ch #2. It's a birthday card. The inside reads "Come rain or shine I hope your birthday is fine." I wrote that to support the umbrella and mittens on the front.
Kind regards,

Nicole - June Bug

I have another for you, this time of my nephew's birthday which is 4 days after my husband's.  The blue and white pp I had didn't look right with these pictures so I had to settle for a blue background. I selected a white number sticker to add some white in anyway. I used a sticker featuring a bug carrying an umbrella. It's hard to see but it's next to the "Cute as a Bug!" sticker.
Thank you again for the inspiration!

I’m really pleased with this layout.  Have umbrella patterned paper and used blue glimmer mist on the white cardstock. I know it doesn’t look like an obvious birthday celebration but years ago, (after a number of days of very wet weather) I took my son for a playground play day with a couple of other little boys from his playgroup who were all celebrating birthdays that week.  He wasn’t the slightest bit interested in the cake or lollies or playing with the other kids – all he wanted to do was jump and splash in the puddles!  I’ve typed this story and it will go in a 6x12 protector along with other pictures of the day and will be placed next to the layout in the album. - Jane
Sandi Robinson - A Very Damp Disney Birthday
For 'Children on their birthdays' I dug out some pics of Nathan on his third birthday. This birthday sprang to mind as soon as I saw the 'umbrella' criteria!  We took the boys to Disneyland Paris & it rained all day! But that didn't spoil the day at all, we just donned those iconic yellow rain capes & got on with it!! As for the criteria...Blue & White background - Check!...Child Celebrating Birthday - Check (to the max as you can tell, he crashed for a nap at one point!!)...& an Umbrella! - Check!! Thanks girls for a fun challenge & a chance to relive a very happy memory!!


  1. Three fabulous LO's & awesome prizes!! Blue is a favourite colour, I have the umbrella???!!!

  2. A slightly oriental theme perhaps hmmmm ... thinking, thinking!! Great poster.

  3. What a great card Megan, love your cut out!

    Fabulous LO here Amanda...what lovely Happy Birthday photos!

    And I do love your umbrella card Dale - marvellous colours!

  4. I just emailed my entry to Shazza...but the bar has been set high here!! I'm loving all the different ways umbrella's have been used! :)

  5. Thank goodness for plastic raincoats Sandi. Disney would be amazing whatever the weather.
    Thanks Debi.
