    Sympathy cards I have had to make this March 2018 



the A5 one was for my hubby's niece
I used a ribbon die I got of ebay and love it.
the stamp rose is a image I got from the internet.


I used 8x8 card the same ribbon die from ebay 
and the stamps beautiful with the words with it 
(sorry I can't remember the name)
the gems down the side are from my 5d Diamond pictures that are left over.
this one is for my lovely friend who lost her battle to cancer. 


this one is a 7x7 card I used black card for the backing to make the image stand out more 
the design is from 
Hazel Kinvig-Paul
called Lillies and Lace Sympathy Card

Well I've not blogged for ages so thought I had better start again. So here we go:

I was asked to make a card for a Special Foster carer which is very unusually but I do with a designed by Karen Heavyside. I've had this years and never used it so no idea where I got it from







7x7 white card 




this is the front that I put it into Serif Craft artist
and added the Happy Birthday 
to a Special Foster Carer




this are the sentiments that come with it and the flowers all cut out












This is the Finished one mounted on Hunkydory Gold mirri card with the flowers all cut out and decoupaged up.

















I've mounted it onto a white 7x7 square card 



















This is the insert with the verse and flowers 

















I cut the second set of flowers out and instead of decoupaging them up I decided to put it at the top to finish it off.

Beautiful Design by Janet Briggs
for a lovely couple's 30th Anniversary.
I have put it on a 8x8 card and put white pearls down the side and on the tips of flowers


It isn't die cut as you can buy online from either crafts u print or card making download











I bought the frame from The Range in Doncaster sprayed it silver to add some colour to it. 
on the inside I embossed some white card and mounted it on the back I have cut out two hearts and put pearls on them. I then cut out the names and dates of the year they married and the year of their Pearl anniversary. I used die cuts for the corners to finish of the outside of the frame

I requested this free Image from Simply Betty Facebook fan page as I think it is absolutely beautiful.  As I am struggling with my health lately this has been a total escape.  I have used my derwent pencils instead of my usual promarkers and must admit totally enjoyed using them for a change. 
I hope you enjoy looking at my finished image and please leave feedback. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog
