Simple Sympathy


Well, another day closer to baby bean day & it sure has flown by! I'm super excited for Monday to come, but I am keeping rested, calm and relaxed, mainly by spending time in the studio creating. My husband won't let me do much else! 

Anyway, today I have a simple sympathy card to share with you. It's among the hardest card making categories alongside masculine cards. I tend to keep things really simple like I have on this card...

This is for my bestie Kerry, who sadly grieving the loss of and said goodbye to her Nan the other day. I used Background Builders: Vines and the sentiment from Flower Power #1.

On a brighter note, I have prepared the September Class Kits which is taking place at The Paperlane on September 14th 11am - 2pm, with Caz. There are still places available and all the details on how to book are on the classes page. I've put a little sneak peek together of a few of the cards that you'll be making in the class, the theme this time is 'Cutting Techniques'.

That's all from me today, I'm off to make a couple more cards before I veg out in front of the TV! I'll be back tomorrow with another card to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today :)
