Friends with Flare
I wanted to use silver paper for the back ground, the only thing I had to work with was the TH foil sheets.  I tried piling of the back and putting on the paper.  That did not work.  So I just cut it with the back on.  The nice thing I learned when experimenting here is you can emboss on the foil adhesive backed sheets rather easily.  They curl a little but than go back to being flat.  I am going to save that for another FWF day.  

Any way here is a card I made for my "MRL"-my reason for living.  haha-in case if you have not guess yet, that is my husband.  I answered the phone when he called me one day-"YRL".  He said "what does that stand for?" "Your reason for living," I replied.  He said I should answer "Hello MRL"[my reason for living]and it has now become quit a little joke between us. This is how we answer the phone now most of the time. While a card that says "you are my sun, stars and moon is just a little over the top, it is true.  Well sort of true, it is hard to be some ones sun, moon and stars with three kids, tons of relatives, a dog, a cat, work,  and sports activities that is a little bit of not the truth.  He always says I am the planet and the the kids and he just orbit around me.  Hmmm, a planet, that is almost as good as being queen. I'll take that.
