First day of school

is finally here!  I really think waiting for the bus in the dark stinks though.  Not to mention my daughter is the only girl at the stop.  Thankfully we have streetlights and it's right outside our front door.  I know- paranoid Mom.  That is me.  We tried in vain last night to find her final schedule on line but there was nothing.  I was hoping we could review on the school map her classes to ease any anxiety.  My step son was a tad nervous but had no worries about finding his homeroom.  He was ready an hour before the bus came and just relaxing watching TV.  A yin and yang experience.  Kinda nice for balance. :-)
Today's card is for a dear friend.  Without going into details, she lost her son recently.  My heart breaks for her and the family.  There are no words of comfort one can give. 

I asked Regina from The Cutting Cafe if she could create a file for sympathy/support and the sentiment you see here is from this new set.  The set is entitled, "You're in my thoughts" and features inside and outside sentiments which are so touching.

I based this card off of 2S4Y's #60 by Laura this week.  I missed last week so glad I was able to jump back in with this one.  I started earlier so I could be sure to.  :-)
I just discovered I made Ellephantastic's top 3 last week for this card. Much thanks for this!  I was greatly surprised and delighted.  I am adding this card in for the "Remembrance/Sympathy" challenge #10 this week. 
I found a fabulous cocktail ring from  Glamasaurus for this week's Etsy Inspired challenge:
I love the purple rose with the hint of green and the ivory mixed with brass.  I thought these GCD papers were a great pairing for this.
That's it for me now.  :-)
