With Sympathy!

Hello Everyone, hoping you have had a good day and managed to get some crafting done.

Thank you to all who visited and left a a comment on my last post, I really do enjoy reading them.

Today was another gorgeous day, started of with quite a harr and it was bitterly cold, in fact it took my breath away, but as the day wore on the sun fairly shone.  Not that I enjoyed much of it as I was working, unlike my hubby who was away with a couple of friends to Ben Nevis.  He was away early in the morning and only arrived back an hour or so ago, exhausted, but had a great day.  Oh to be retired.

My card today is one I've been asked to make;
I've kept it fairly simple and used decoupaged flowers, had these a while and can't remember what they are, with a Sizzix Doily die. Colours I've kept to light grey and white, with silver to tine in with the colours of the flower. Spellbinders embossing paisley folder, computer generated sentiment, Silver peel off borders and pearls from The Ribbon Girl.

As I don't make Sympathy cards all that often, I don't really have all that much in my stash for them, so I have to rummage around to find what is suitable.  I think this is OK though, you want to get it right for this type of card.

So it's Good Night from me, sleep well everyone,

Kate X
