Thoughts and Prayers


It's never easy making a sympathy card which is why it's handy to have one in your box, ready for when you need it.

I woke up this morning with an idea in my head and I'm happy that it translated into this card.  I started with a Smoky Slate card base and stamped the blossoms in Versamark then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I added a panel of Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.  The blossom was stamped again in Smoky Slate.  I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes then added some flowers punched out using Itty Bitty Punches and Basic Pearls. 

Hope you have had a good weekend.  The weather has been kind to us and we even got some gardening done.  It was long overdue!  

However my happy dance this weekend was when I saw that I was one of the showcase winners at LIM for this card.  Thanks ladies I'm delighted.  


This week's theme is FLOWERS so I'd going to pop this card into this week's challenge.  Have a look at the entries over at Less is More they are a fab inspiration.

A beautiful card, Aileen, and very appropriate.
I believe you are having the same weather as here, dank, cold and misty, good art-making weather. How do I know? - I saw you over at Valerie's!
