These are so not colors that I would have put together, but I love how soft and gentle they are.
As I was looking through embossing folders for the first card, I found a butterfly folder that I had not yet used and thought it would look great with these colors. It seemed a little "cheerful" for sympathy so I made it Get Well.
I also had to share some pictures of a fun moment from yesterday. We have some very cold, snowy weather. My oldest is in charge of taking the garbage out to the corner (which when you have 5 acres is quite a haul). He had forgotten to take it out last week so we had piles. With his new learner's permit for driving, he decided he would load up the back of the car with trash bags and drive them out. Made sense to us. Somehow this is what happened...
Front end in the ditch!! The truly inexplicable part of this is that our driveway is about 20 yards to the left of where he is, so it's not like he shot out of the driveway too fast and ended up in the ditch??!!
Then he had to come get Dad to help him. Can you imagine how mortified he was to come tell Dad? Of course, I grabbed my camera. Andrew is actually walking from our driveway in this picture, so you can see how odd it was that the car is in the ditch almost by the neighbors house??!!
It turns out that after he unloaded the trash, he tried to U-turn so he didn't have to back down the driveway. You can tell that the road is very icy - so he just slid right off!
Scott just pulled forward a little bit for traction and it came right out! But it sure is going to be fun teasing Andrew about this over the years. (And clearly we have to teach some snow driving!)
We are going to head up to our mountain place a little later today so I won't be back until Monday. We are thrilled because the forecasted high in the mountains is 12F and the low is -9F. We are a strange family that that excites us, aren't we??
