Sympathy Cards

I didn't plan to be back before Christmas but here I am. Unfortunately, my husband's good friend lost his mother yesterday and so I have made some cards to send to his family. Here they are...

I'm really liking this colour combination at the moment. It is so soft & calming.

The next card is another sympathy card but this time for one of my husband's co-workers...

I'll also take this post opportunity to show you the card I made for our brother-in-law's birthday...

I haven't provided details today but if you'd like to know anything, all you have to do is ask.

Well, enjoy the rest of this beautiful day. I'm off to watch the girls swim in the pool.

Take care.

Finally, I'm back with a new post! Where have I been? Making eighty, yes, eighty of these babies for our neighbours' little girl's christening...

Sorry, I'm not very good with photo editing so this was the best that I could do to obscure all the personal details. Unfortunately, it really detracts from the invitation, which in real life, is soft & really pretty. Our neighbours were delighted with their invitations, which of course, makes all those long hours I put in, very worthwhile.

The colours I used were Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White. The butterfly is from the Summer Mini Catalogue stamp set, Butterfly Prints. It was punched out with the new Butterfly punch, also from the new Summer Mini Catalogue. The ribbon is also Pretty in Pink & to finish the butterfly off, I affixed two little pink crystals to it.

Well, just in case I don't get a chance to post again before Christmas, I'll take this opportunity to wish you all happiness, health & good cheer possible for Christmas & throughout 2010. I hope you have many memorable moments.

Thank you all for stopping by my Blog this year. Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely comments. Thank you for your inspiration.

See you in the New Year!
Take care.
