*Rain Rain Go Away*

Will the rain ever stop??

I think that even the farmers and ranchers in the Prairies are complaining about the amount of rain that has fallen in the last few weeks.

I understand through news feeds today that a portion of the TransCanada highway (the one I take to get to Regina and home again) is closed due to flooding.  This is the main East/West highway that goes across the country.

It is absolutely insane how much rain has fallen.

I am hoping that we get a few light rain showers in the month of July but no more big soakers!

I am missing my family a lot today.... not sure why...  I called Bruce at lunch just to say "hi" and perhaps I shouldn't have... hearing his voice made me miss him even more.

Anyway....

I created this card following one of the Fall To Layouts on the Clean and Simple blog....  the more I play with Clean and Simple, the more I like it....
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  PaperTrey Ink White; Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay
*Images:  Stampendous Birthday Blossoms; Amuse
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay; Copics
*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
*Challenges:  FTL92


You can see that I took this picture after I bought my bedding plants and before I got them in the ground... that's a pot of wave petunias to the right of the photo.  They are all now planted and I hope they haven't drown!

Enjoy your weekend!
