Happy Day, everyone. It's beginning to warm up a bit here, but the week has taken a toll with my Arthur pain. And to make it worse, our daughter and son-in-love in Austin got the full force of the ice storm that hit Texas and lost power which is still not restored. And it began warming a bit there yesterday, but that is how overwhelmed the utility linemen are right now, there are so many knarly restores with all the ice on the trees and limbs breaking and falling on lines. The kids founds friends with working internet and are over there working from their home today. It does give them something to do, as sitting around without electricity these days gets really old after all. But I'm hoping things normalize for them as soon as possible.
I'm sharing a card I made for them. This photo shows the colors realistically, but in some of my subsequent photos the pink looks more red than it really is. I think that is caused sometimes by my post-processing action I run in PSE. I usually go in manually and adjust the affected photos but I cop to being lazy this time. 🙋

I used this sketch for my layout design.
A close-up to show the white heat-embossed sentiment. (This shot and the rest were over-processed and look too red.)
Inside the card, I created the sentiments and printed them out on pink pastel paper.
And the back with more of the Lawn Fawn paper and a stamped and punched siggie.
One last look. Thanks for the visit and I hope your weekend looks good!
