This was made for a friend of my mum's whose mother recently passed away; I wanted to stay away from the traditional purple sympathy colours so reached for the (retired) Le Jardin papers and used So Saffron/Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip for the colour scheme.
I used the Stampin Up markers to colour the flowers and also to ink up the sentiment in 2 separate colours.
(All Stampin Up)
Stamps: Close as a Memory
Ink - Markers - So Saffron/Always Artichoke/Chocolate Chip
Card/Papers - Chocolate Chip/Always Artichoke/Very Vanilla/So Saffron/ Le Jardin DSP
Other - nestabilities/cuttlebug/crafter's tool kit/button/embriodery floss/Always Artichoke ribbon
I also wanted to share a photo of one of my cats, Ella, today - it's hard to get a good picture of her because of her colour but in last week's snow she really stood out! She's quite a character (which is another way of saying she's very mischievous!) and likes nothing better than to sit on my shoulder while I'm crafting!
Thanks for visiting today - and a big thanks for helping me to reach my first 5000 hits! When (or if!) it ticks over 5000 I'll get some blog candy sorted!
Have a great week y'all!
