Sad Times!

Firstly I cannot believe I haven't posted since Sunday... in honesty I can't believe it is Thursday! Where has the week gone? It may have something to do with the fact I work in finance and it was month end last week and we still had forecasts to submit this week. I think it's more likely that I have been spending so much longer outside in the gorgeous sunshine!

It hasn't been a great week for us, one of my husbands customers sadly passed away and we had to have one of our cats (the older one) put to sleep on Monday.

Ever the practical one I wanted to make a card for Chris' customers' husband and so I made this.

You can't really see from this but the image was stamped in Versamark on Vellum and then I used Black embossing powder.

The background was sponged on the Vellum from behind which you can see better on this photo where the light shines through.

Don't forget you can order all the products to make this card from my on-line shop by clicking on the link on the right hand side bar.

I have a few projects I've been working on and I'm just trying to find the time to shoot a short video!

Roll on the weekend!

  1. Great card for a sad occasion. Thanks for sharing.

  2. So sorry to hear about your losses. I know that your husbands customer will love and appreciate the card you've made. In regards to your poor kitty, that's a hard one. I don't think that we ever get over the loss of a beloved pet. Just get lots of cuddles from your husband and use his shoulder to cry on. If you have other remaining pets, let them comfort you as they genuinely know how to. Take care. X

    1. Thank you Deanna, fortunately I have a wonderful husband and a house full of loving animals. xxxx

  3. Yours cards areboth beautiful. Sorry to read this sad news. I send you my sympathy. Marie deltour from France
