For those of you who saw my last posting, you know why I have been absent for awhile. It's time to get back to some routine again & making cards has always been my way to escape & unwind at the end of a day. Thanks to all of you who have expressed your concern.
Today's card is one I made before Mom passed & since she shared my love for Xmas, I thought it was a good one to start back with.
I have to share a story about the addition of the snow to my card. Years ago when my daughter & I first got into heat embossing, I bought the normal "regulation" heat gun at Michaels. I had only had it about a day when it quit working & I returned it. My son-in-law, being the sweetheart that he is, decided to get both of us a "real" heat gun. After a trip to Menards he came back with our new guns. I affectionately refer to mine as "the blow torch" because it gets so hot. When I first finished the snow on this card, I looked at it & was admiring how well it had turned out when I noticed this strange red, mangled, "thing" in the corner. It took me a minute to realize this mangled thing was my melted bow. Yup, melted it to a cinder! Luckily, I was able to pry it off & add a new one. But you know what? I wouldn't trade my "blow torch" for a normal heat gun for anything in the world. Every time I use it I think of my sweet son-in-law & how hard he tried to do something nice for us & it always brings a smile to my face.
Have a great day & enjoy all your blessings. Catch you later.
