We'd like to welcome another Muse to our Pantheon today, Donna Mikasa from Three Umbrellas! Welcome, Donna! We're thrilled to have you :)


Aloha! I’m Donna Mikasa and my blog is three umbrellas. I live in the 50th state with my husband who supports my love of stamping and we have two grown daughters. I am thrilled to be this month’s Muse (Thank you, Chupa!) and I look forward to seeing how my cards are studied and CASE’d.

Here's an amazing card by Donna that we're inspired by today:
