Good afternoon to you all and how are you today?
I started off so well this morning getting everyone up and sorted but then the day seems to have vanished. How does that work?
I think it happens when entering my crafting room.
Isn't it funny how time disappears as soon as entering the craft zone? Is it a strange phenomena or do we just get lost in creating? And more disturbingly, why in my mind right now, is there some strange science fiction music! Losing the plot.
Today I unfortunately have a sad card to share. Yesterday one of my lovely neighbours lost her husband. He hasn't been well for a long time so not a shock, nevertheless it is still very sad.
At these times it is always difficult to know what to say and do.
I always tell folk "you know where I am if I can help you in anyway, just let me know", as I hate to intrude.
She has had lots of visitors and family so I thought I'd pop over a card just to let her know I'm thinking of her. As they're part of a big family in the village I'm sure she will get loads of flowers so I'm thinking to leave that for now and maybe take her some over in a few weeks time when things of quietened down.
The lighting isn't the best, we've just gone very dark here and had a hail storm pass by, not creating the best backdrop for photography.
The Lily is a digi stamp I got ages ago and I have used it lots for sympathy cards over the years.
I don't know why but I love a Lily for a sympathy card. I have produced two of the images to be able to 3d it adding a seam binding ribbon to finish. It is coloured in lightly with my prisma pencils.
The printing has been done on my computer then I have mounted it on gold card before mounting on the actual card. I cut the rectangle using my paper trimmer.
I have another card to make for a friend but as I seem to have lost most of my morning I better go and do a little housework first. That way I won't feel too guilty if I do a little more crafting later.
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday.
