Oh My Galosh!

This week I put the CPS sketch on my crafty to-do list. I don't get to it often enough, so I made it a priority this week. It's only Tuesday, and I'm already done--yay, me!

We have had SO much rain these past few months--the fifth wettest spring on record. This "oh my galosh" sentiment totally fits with how I feel right now.


I think I may send this card to my mom. She's a gardener and is always worrying about the farmers, too, so she'll like this one. What do you think?

Paper: Bashful Blue, PTI white, yellow dp (unknown--RAK)
Accessories: Nestabilities blossoms, American Crafts flair, ribbon (SU), Cuttlebug Argyle, distressing tool

Ann I think your card is sooooo sweet! I just love that sentiment too LOL! We've got the opposite of rain here which is very rare here in the UK for Summer time - I'm making the most of it!

I think the flower is awesome and what a fun way to add a sentiment as a flower center.

We have also had a LOT of rain this spring. I, for one, am not unhappy about that. Since our water comes from a well, and it just about ran dry last year from the drought we had been having, I'm glad to know we will have plenty of water this summer
