With Sympathy

Friday, August 29, 2014

This is my first ever Sympathy card! I have been asked by my workplace to take a few sympathy cards in as we give them to families of clients that pass in our care. I adore this stamp from Kaiser Craft sorry I don't have the name, it was on clearance and I am so glad I popped it into my basket.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges

Thanks so much for dropping by I really do love and appreciate you taking the time to do so

I just recieved a box of goodies from MFT and instantly fell in love with the beautiful Sour Apple Cardstock and Ink <3 I decided to play along with this weeks sketch using that gorgeous colour. Here is the sketch for this week
The papers I have used on my card are from Kaiser Craft a pad called Save the Date which sadly has just recently retired. I am loving the new Spotlight Sentiments and think they will be seeing a lot of ink :). The cupcake is from the most gorgeous Birdie Brown set called Sweet Birthday Wishes which secretly I think is my most favorite to date. I have used glossy accents on the icing but I dont think you can really pick it up in the photos. Well thanks for stopping by I hope your day is full of crafty goodness.
