With Heartfelt Sympathy

Hi there,

I had to make a card for a dear friend of mine, who lost her father the other day after losing his battle with a lung disorder.

I am yet to catch up with her but i made the card to let her know i am thinking of her and her family at this time.
As you are all in agreement these cards are not the easiest ones to make. I find they take me a while to do no matter how simple or complicated i make them, as i want to get these cards just right.
With the making of this card i got to break out a set i have had for quite a while but with not having a craft room, i haven't been able to play, i do have a few other sets that are calling out to be used for the first time, so as i find time i will be  playing with these im sure.

One thing i have found is that since i haven't crafted in so long i have forgotten a few techniques and what to do with certain tools, so the first few moments when i have been sitting down to create, is spent here working out where to start, then away i go.

Anyway here is my card
I added a touch of glitter to the flowers, just to add a sprinkle of love
Sorry for the photo quality, as i have taken the photo at night, as i do not know when i am able to get back to blog this, so it was all done as i was sitting here creating, that way there would be no excuses.

I also thought i had better add a photo of the nearly finished kitchen, as i have added ones of the before and during, and as of yet a finished one
Just the splash back, toe kicks and the counter front to finish in this photo.

We have now finished the kitchen/lounge/dinning and two other rooms but there is still a lot to do, the problem with getting a bigger place is the amount of painting that there is to be done, but slowly it is all been re-vamped, i must admit i am enjoying it all.

Well enjoy the week ahead, and look forward to seeing you here again soon
