Rain, Rain, and More Rain

It's time for another Show Me Thursday at Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday Blog. Yeah, yeah, I know it's only Monday, and I'm way ahead of my usual posting. However, I want to show you what we've had going on since last Wednesday.

It's called rain, and thank goodness so far it's still only rain. Temps are hovering at freezing, and hopefully they'll continue to hover there so that we don't get ice. Can I just say that no one does ice well, and believe me here in the South, we don't do ice AT ALL. These are pictures of my front yard

 and my back yard from the porch of TM.

Yes, I did get out there and spend the day. I had to put on my rubber boots to go back and forth from the house to TM. While I was out there I created 9 Thank You cards for OWH.

I love the way they turned out. The flower and the sentiment are from the Silhouette America. The papers are from a digital kit from Dotted Daisy called Cocoa Paisley Damask.


  1. morning shirley!
    oh that is one beautiful card hun, I love the flower and those papers are so pretty.
    We have a sprinkling of snow and ice here, brrrrrr but sooooo pretty!!
    huge hugs Lou xxxxx

  2. Shirley, this is gorgeous! As for thr rain- yup, now we've got it, too. So far, no ponds in the yard, though!

  3. Very nice Shirley, love the flower and color. Is the border a silhouette cut,a memory word or a border stamp. Really pretty. Oh, and we have a dust of snow on the ground and sounds like freezing rain outside. ugh... ol' man winter is here in Texas!

  4. OMgosh Shirley! that's a whole lot of rain! We can't seem to get above the low 30's here. If it did start to rain--it would be the white stuff..not my choice for sure!
    I am loving these beautiful cards..fantastic flower and love the soft colors and eye catching design! you go girl!
    hugs to ya
    stay high and dry!

  5. Good grief! That IS a lot of rain! I hope the temperature stays up so it doesn't freeze. Boy, that would be a MESS! Stay safe, dry and warm!!!
    I love the Thank You card(s) that you did for OWH. I agree. But I think they turned out beautifully!
    Thanks for playing along in the Sassy Cheryl's SMThursday fun this week.

  6. No rain here! Temperatures have been in the 70's for a couple of weeks. Flowers are blooming, but it is turning cold this weekend. Nature is as confused as I am and that is pretty bad.

    Shirley, I love this card. It is so pretty. I have some new Washi tape that I have been looking for an idea to use. I think I just may have found my inspiration! Thank you GF.

  7. Wow, can you believe that we had the same weather in Alaska over the weekend?! TONS of rain and standing water where the snow has melted. Such a strange winter everywhere!

    A rainy day is perfect for crafting, Shirley. Your cards are gorgeous! Have a great week.
