It's a rainy day in Georgia!

We are getting some much needed rain this week! I am so glad! One of my favorite things to do is curl up with a good book while it is pouring outside! I am also happy that the ground will be soft now, so I can finish weeding. We mainly have clay instead of dirt, and you can hurt yourself if you try to work it when it is dry!

I took this picture of some blossoms on our Japanese Cherry tree. We planted it in memory of Charlie's dad, and it took awhile to really grow well because of the relentless drought we have been experiencing. This year it has really done well! It is right outside the kitchen window, and right now when the blinds are open, it is so pretty! We have tons of birds that fly in and out of the branches. It's especially nice because our neighbors have decided to park two boats in the easement that is between our houses, and it is tall and full enough that I don't see them when I look out the window! We don't have a neighborhood association, and while I know there are a lot of problems that can come from those, sometimes it's not such a bad thing to have some rules! Oh well. On to more fun things. . . .

This card was made with a German stamp set! It has such cute images! I got it from a friend I met on Splitcoaststampers. She came to Atlanta for a conference, and I took her around town to Archivers, Michaels, and a LSS in Marietta. We had the best time!

It looks like the rain has stopped for a bit--just in time for car pool!


  1. I'm so glad that you have been getting rain. Hopefully you can avoid a draught this year.

    This card is so cute. Love that little image.

  2. Super cute card Sharon - and WOW look at those beautiful blooms!!! MUCH better than some boats ;) YAY for RAIN!!!!!!

  3. The blossoms are beautiful! Your card is cute! Can't wait for Spring to really arrive here, too!

  4. Your tree is beautiful. As for the clay, I know what you mean. Our soil is clay and it's a pain to dig through.

  5. Oh my... the cherry blossoms are so pretty. I wish the flowers would bloom here. Come on, Spring!!!
    Really cute card too! I love the little bear image!
