Have no idea where the last couple of days have gone! Promised myself some 'me' time today and happily played away in the craftie space once I got home from a shopping for a few last minute bits and pieces...
Finished off two rather OTT fancy creations, which I'll share at a later date and also remembered to pop on some ribbon to this one!
I am not a 'fussy and fancy' sympathy card kind of person at all. Although I have seen some beautiful intircate and heavily embellsihed sympathy cards I alwasy think that you wouldn't have the inclination to aprreciate them whilst you're feeling so very sad. So I opt instead for plain basic ones - after all it's the thought that counts!
This was another quickie card made for my stash box - I have none whatsoever that actually say' with sympathy' - have a few that could be used as sympthy cards but none with the actual sentiment, so thought I'd rectify that by making a couple.
I used autumnal colours as that's what the weather is currently like here!
I masked off a rectangle with some post it's, and then used some of my fave colours from the DI drawer - Barn Door, Wild Honey and Dried Marigold.
The tree stamp has never seen ink until now (to my shame) and I bought it on a trip to the NEC two years ago! I used Brushed Corduroy DI on both tree and sentiment.
The stamped piece has been sat on the desk for a few days whilst I decided if I was going to leave it bare, add a couple of pearls (I stick pearls on everything given half a chance....), or add something else. In the end I opted to wrap a piece of scrap ribbon round it and then layer it onto a slightly larger card.

Thanks for visiting and if you've left a comment, I really appreciate you taking the time!
Supposed to be our Club Finals Day tomorrow and the forecast is just dreadful - so I may manage some more time making messy before the big suitcase pack starts on Tuesday!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. x
