So Sorry

Hello Friends!

I made today's card for a very dear friend whose mother passed away after a very long illness. I was rushing to finish this card, because I needed to make two. The second one is for her sister who is also a dear friend of ours.

On a lighter note:  I was heat embossing this card and I took the lid off the container that housed 2 to 3 jars of Iridescent Ice Embossing powder...don't ask me why, because I wasn't even using it at the time. As I mentioned previously, I was in a hurry and not paying attention and waving my heat tool rapidly, when all of a sudden the heat tool hit the Iridescent Ice and....POOF...a ginormous, sparkly cloud soared into the air!

Wait for's the best husband walks in at that very moment and says to me, "Wow! What did you do that for?" I said nothing and turned around and kept heat embossing as if everything was normal, neither fazed by his comment nor by the big, shimmering cloud covering me and just about EVERYTHING in the room! Don't you just love days like that = )
