'Skunky Time!'

Good morning, I hope you are all well, if not I am sending you cyber get well soon hugs!
I hope the weather is going to be better today than yesterday. It did nothing but rain & it always make me feel really yuk & sore & grumpy....bring on the sunshine! No Gentleshaw for us today as Nige is working, but we are going tomorrow. I really need skunky cuddles from Alfie.  
As most of you know I am waiting for our baby skunky to be born, yes still waiting lol!

Anyhoos I made this card for this weeks challenge at My Time to Craft, where the theme is....

APRIL SHOWERS

So we want to see an umbrella on your creation!

I just had to get this image when I saw it a while ago, its so sweet & perfectly stinky!
I am going to do another card without the raindrops & make it into a Thank You card for our babies breeder. I just hope his pregnant girlie hurries up & has them lol!!!
