Sad Occasions

Sorry I have been absent - my Mojo took a holiday.

What got me crafting again was some very sad news, that a lovely lady I know is fighting a losing battle with cancer. She is the same age as me, in her early 40's and was only recently diagnosed. Please spare a thought for her and her family.

Obviously I wanted to create something beautiful for her and put in as much love and care as possible. Sometimes a sad occasion calls for something beautiful to bring a moment of cheer.

Out came the Blendabilities and the Blended Bloom stamp. I also used a folded card I had not tried before.


I also used a stamp from Flowering Flourishes and you can just make out the glitter here on the edges of the folded petals. The little punched flowers are from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.


The sentiment is from Hopeful Thoughts and really expressed what words alone couldn't. Here you can see the fold.


I've been away in the caravan this weekend with no internet - though the peace was shattered by the pub next door who had a barn dance and fireworks all last night! It will be nice to be in my own bed tonight!
