Hello all... it's Saturday again and so time for another of my GDT challenges over at
and this week's theme is
This is one type of card that I don't enjoy making.... but I do try to keep in a supply of them in case they are needed....
I think this Pink Petticoat Image and Bearly Mine Design Paper work really well together for Sympathy/Condolence Cards. The digital paper was a freebie ages ago.... the original is actually green which is lovely and works well, but I fancied a change for this card and so have altered the tone to purple with imaging software. I like to add a few gems or a butterfly to signify hope and eventually brighter times ahead...
Image & Sentiment: Pink Petticoat - 'Dandelion Wisps'
Paper: Bearly Mine Designs
Punch: Martha Stewart - 'Royal Butterfly'
Hope you can pop over to My Time To Craft and see the rest of the teamies wonderful creations!
Sorry my last post ended a bit abruptly... it was scheduled and I usually add a bit of chit chat on Wednesday evening but I got a fever of 102F and felt awful. My tooth had flared up again, but also my chest... so didn't know whether to go to the doctor or the dentist!! ROFL..... decided on the doctor and now have some antibiotics and steroids so feeling a bit better now.
On the way back from the doctor's on Thursday, it was such a beautiful day! Although I didn't feel very well I really needed cheering up.... so Mum and I stopped off at the lane near the meadows.... isn't it a lovely place... we are so lucky to live near here.
it's a very short walk to the Bluebell Woods... lots of birds singing...
it was lovely and sunny and there is a bench nearby to sit and relax. We saw two very friendly doggies going walkies... A lovely Spinoni with gorgeous silky wheat-coloured coat, and a very bouncy little Spaniel. They were both adorable!
Glad we went our little walk yesterday as today (Friday) has been non-stop rain all day!!
Hope the weather brightens up for everyone soon! I'm hoping to do a bit of crafting this weekend and also read some of my crafting and history magazines... I have a few unopened yet! terrible I know but will enjoy catching up with them! :-)
Thanks for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate them.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Love and Hugs
