Rain

The background was offered by ACF in a lovely green color. Seems I'm running out of ink in my printer and I came up with blue. I printed the music from a songbook where I found the words to "Rain."
I created a background using a partial stamp from Hampton Arts of England (thus taking on the challenge of "architecture" at TGIF. The umbrella man is from Stampers Anonymous.
