This little card is so much prettier in real life. It is splashed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist and has a lovely shimmer when tipped at angles. I sprayed the flowers at the same time so that they would compliment the colors used on the background. That is the Vintage City Scrapblock and it was heat embossed with Superfine clear embossing powder from Ranger. That stuff looks almost like flocking when it comes out of the jar, it is so cool!!! And it is very detailed, perfect for this stamp and so many of the others from CHF! Can you tell what my inspiration for this card was? LOL! Dave went out of town for the week as well, and I am telling you, this house is now really quiet. Not sure how I feel about that...
Well, there is a Thomas Kinkade release today, and I have a card that I have been working on that is eerily similar to this that would like some finishing touches.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

I know, I need to stop whining about Tyler leaving, you are all probably so sick of it!!!
The quote on this card is what I wish for him, and I know that by letting him go he can do anything that he imagines. (it really is so hard though!) They don't tell you that when you leave with them from the hospital to take them home for the first time. Seems that there should be some disclaimers of some kind dontcha think?
Dear Cath has given some wonderful words of advice and comfort and also excellent suggestions for reading that I have really appreciated.
We have a weekend of plans and activities that will allow us to spend extra time with Tyler and our extended family that want to spend time with him and wish him well.
Hang in there with me, I promise I will talk about something else soon!

I only have Tyler for one more week before he is on the plane to Sao Paolo, Brazil to serve in the Cuiaba Mission. So to get the most out of the time that we have, we have been doing lots of his favorite things! Today we went skiing up at Deer Valley. It was so beautiful, with almost two feet of new snow and cold clear skies, perfection if you are a skier! We came home and ran carpool, picked up some groceries and went to Mr. Mac to pick up his suits, shoes, slacks, shirts, socks and the suitcases to put it all in. (that was quite the alliteration wasn't it, quite proud of myself, LOL!)
So hard to let him go, but I am enjoying all of the time we are spending together, such a treat!
Off to get some rest, another long day tomorrow!

Tyler is leaving on the 18th (yes, of this month!!) and I am not ready. He is prepping, and has a few things left to do, but while I am trying my hardest to bend my head around it, just can't seem to be able to get around not crying when I think about not seeing him for two years. I am totally excited about the adventure, the location, the reason and everything else! But man two years seems like forever right now.
This is a layout I made a few months ago with pictures from a trip to visit with Christina. I wrote myself some advice, and it seems really applicable right now for me and Tyler, so it seemed worth sharing.
Off to enjoy an evening with the family watching Chuck and snarfing down some lasagna that Tyler made for us this afternoon! We all went to the Draper Temple open house together earlier today, so beautiful, and now some quiet time together is just what I need!
