Whopper Storm and Sunshine Wishes

We had a whopper of a storm go through on Tuesday afternoon.  We ended up with 3.9 INCHES of rain at our house in about an hour.  It was crazy heavy rain in a very short time.  I don't think we've ever had that much rain at one time before.

This is our rain gauge.  The center tube holds one inch when full, then overflows to the large tube.  The overflow measured out to be 2.9 inches after the full tube of 1 inch.  Crazy!!  

Sadly some of it decided to come in the house, but nothing a few towels couldn't soak up.  Our patio was flooded, it needs real rain gutters, but until then, we keep towels.  

On to today's card...

In need of a Sympathy card, but wouldn't this look beautiful for any other type of card as well?

Whisper White - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 3/4" and 5 1/4" x 2 1/8"
Sweet Sugarplum - 5 1/4" x 1 1/2"
Designer Series Paper - 5 1/4" x 1"

The colored cardstock I placed down first, with the DSP centered on top. Don't add adhesive until you can line it up with the smaller pieces of Whisper White.  I popped up the Whisper White with Stampin' Dimensionals but put the DSP and cardstock down on the main card directly.

Sentiments are from Rose Wonder.

Thank you for looking in today.  ~ Donna

  1. I saw on the news about Phoenix and the rain. I wondered about you.

    The card is pretty and that is a neat idea. I like how the white is popped up. The colors are so pretty. I like that DP.

    1. Thank you Chris. I love this DSP, it is sooooo pretty!

      We even had manhole covers bouncing all around. One on our street was blown off due to air pressure and too much water in the drains too quickly. I almost drove into the hole. Scared me half to death!

  2. In Houston we had the manhole covers bounce around but I don't think I saw one completely blow off. That would be scary and dangerous. Here there is not so much concrete so some of the rain gets into the ground until fully saturated.
