In Honor of Today's Weather

Well, Happy Friday, all. I must say our weather today is certainly different. Thunder, lightning (albeit pretty paltry showing) and some big, fat raindrops. This is Southern California and in my part of town this is not part of everyday life! Especially the 1st of October! In fact, it's so unusual that I went running out the back door to witness the phenomenon. Then I felt foolish because I grew up in Chicago, spent my summers in Michigan on the lake, and weathered storms suitable for the apocalypse. Anyway, if you haven't guessed, it doesn't take much to impress me! So, back indoors to the craft room. where I knew that, in honor of the unusual weather, I had to make something a little different. I plugged in my Cricut and got to work. This is the result.
Okay, it's not THAT different, but at least it isn't rectangular or square, or autumn. So there!  It is kinda cute, though.
