ceorl: noun

a freeman of the lowest rank in Anglo-Saxon England

OK  so the word of the day isn't one that will find it's way into any conversation soon, which is good, because I couldn't pronounce it either...not without a couple glasses of wine anyway! )

Cute Card Thursday - #266 Can't stop the Rain
Scrap it with a Song - "Foolish Games" by Jewel
I used the first line to her song for my inspiration:
You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You're always crazy like that.

I don't know about you, but I love the rain. Love listening to it. Love sleeping while it's raining. On warm days, I even love to walk in it. When I was a youngster my favorite thing was taking my dad's huge golf umbrella and making a "tent" out in the rain ( sometimes more than one umbrella was involved! )...accompanied by my troll dolls. Now as an adult, I'll settle for the covered balcony ;) Although I do have a healthy collection of umbreallas ♥

When staging this photo I have to admit I had a giggle because it's shot right in front of my Fushia plant....and I kill Fushia plants. I love them but have the hardest time keeping them alive...so in a way...this card is for my plant! lol 

Fiskar - Rain embossing plate
Big Shot
Our Daily Bread - stamp ( sentiment )

Sweet card Sandee! The little birdie on the top is just a perfect little touch! (I chuckled as the plant that I kill and love are African Violets..Poor things don't last in my care even after reading a bunch about them..hmmmm).

I was admiring your lovely Fushia plant when I read you kill them. This one looks beautiful and healthy.

Your card is adorable. Of course, there are several I like, including the one that has the embossing. I suppose I'm going to need embossing plates now that Kathy has given me her old BigKick.

Love the simplicity & styling on this nifty card. Enjoyed a chuckle re: your fuschia plant. I love 'em, can't grow 'em, usually use the silk ones! Your lawn is beautiful too...can see that your area has had some good rain. TFS & Happy Tuesday. Hugs

A lovely card. Sorry, I don't share your love for rain, think I've had my fil of it over the years here in Scotland. It can rain for weeks at a time ;-)
My best experience of rain was in St Lucia one year on holiday, I went to the hotel shop and there was a downpour. I got soaked in a second, but since the rain was warm, it was like being in the shower! Like the Jamaicans, they call it liquid sunshine!

What a pretty card. Love the papers and that cute little bird.

Have a creative day.

Sweet card! I love the soft patter of rain but not the storms like we had this morning. Stupid dog has a panic attack every time we have a storm!

I hope your fuchsia plant makes it through okay. I am not a very good plant keeper aliver.

The card is great. Rain is one of my favorites too. We get some crazy thunder storms in Louisiana (and did on Lake Michigan too) and I love them!
