my Sympathy cards

Hi Everyone,

Well what a week, really busy at work and with not much time to craft at night, I have managed to make these cards - With my Uncle passing away on the 9th, these cards seemed to be the right ones to make.

 With this card, I used a blank card with a fancy border in white, I decided that at these sad times, it would be nice to make a fresh looking card, I had some of Anna Griffin 3D roses and little 3D flowers and with the help of The  My Craft Studio cds that I have, I looked through to find the tag. I used a wide cream ribbon to blend in with the flowers, did not want to have white as it would have just blended in with the white card. I then finished the card off with a very small clear gem as the eye of the dove on the tag. I was really pleased with the outcome of this card as I think everyone secretly likes flowers, and I know that my Uncle loved roses, so that is why I have put roses on this card.  Simply words inside the card finishes it off.

This blue card was a A4 sheet of white card folded in half, I used a 12X12 sheet of blue paper, from my "only special use stock"... I am sure we all have them, and then again printed off some images from My craft Studio cds, then matted the image onto some white card and then onto the blue base card, I used some tiny red rose buds bound in a lovely silk blue ribbon and used gel glue to keep it in place. Again I decided to use red instead of white roses as I did not want my cards to be morbid.

Well folks thats my bit for now, will be busy playing with my paints and fusion this weekend and also I have found a clouds stamp in a sale last weekend and really cant wait to play with it, but just have not had a minute.
Happy crafting everyone.

I have had a problem with my internet connection, well it turned out to be a update of a virus protector that I had on my computer, so after days of scratching my head on how to solve it, I have uninstalled that programe and wella I have internet. Now have to catch up on all the blog news that I have missed out, and have some cards to add to my blog! so watch this space over the next few days.

Happy crafting everyone and enjoy the back to school projects.
