Lied to by Mother

I was recently in a card swap called "raining cats and dogs."  We were to make a card using cats and/or dogs and/or a rain theme.  Most participants went for the pets, but I went for the rain:
That's because it is monsoon season here in Southern Arizona.  Doesn't that sound exciting--Violent storms complete with thunder, lightning, and torrential downpours of water from the sky?!  It sounds great, but it is all just one big lie coming from Mother Nature.  We get the dark ominous skies that grumble and send out lightning bolts, but that is where it ends.  The clouds move on and dump their precious cargo of rain elsewhere.  Mother is such a tease.

The Fine Print: How come we're not allowed to fool Mother Nature, but she can jerk us around day after day?  Stamps from Taylored Expressions "June 2013 Stamps of the Month," patterned paper by Simple Stories "Vintage Bliss" and ribbon from my stash.
