Sometimes People Suck

Hi there! Yesterday I went to get my usual cup of coffee at our local center store. It's a small gas,convenience,deli shop run by a really nice couple. They have made fantastic changes to the shop in this small sleepy town and also work long hours. In other words a truly nice caring couple.
   We recently received about 18" of snow in the last snowstorm. Even though people were advised to stay off the roads, this couple opened as usual at 5am. Our Governor told non essential workers they should stay home. These shop owners ARE essential , to the snow plow drivers, lol.
   Anyways, here we are 4 days out from the storm. The snow is somewhat melting, getting a little slushy. You guessed it. Some woman (not a regular) slips in the parking lot. She goes back in the store and tells them she thinks she has to go to the Emergency Room because she thinks she sprained her ankle! Think lawsuit.
Can anything just be an accident today?
   I have sent these people several cards and they both really enjoy them. When I walked in the store she came over and said "just give me a hug" and then proceeded to tell me what happened. As I was leaving she asked me if I could make her a card that they really cheer her up.
   Voila, this is what I came up with. I used my Spellbinders nestabilities and my Just Rite stamps. I REALLY love these stamps. I can stamp anything I want to say. The background paper is DCWV the All About Girls Stack. I added a few butterfly embellishments to make it a pretty card and to add an element of surprise (you would never expect the inside sentiment, lol).
   Hope you all have a great day!!
