Not a good weekend

It has been a trying time lately and on Sunday we lost another good friend so another sympathy card was called for.

Materials used:
Deedee’s Digi Stamp sets: Easter Lilies; Endless Beginnings
White DL card blank
stamping card
black card
Copic and Spectrum Noir pens

I arranged and printed out my design on the stamping card and then coloured in the image using the Copic and Spectrum Noir pens. I cut the image down to the required size and then matted it onto black card before attaching to the card blank leaving a thin border each time.

I am hoping that is the last sympathy card I will need for a while. Of course this image would work just as well as an Easter Card. Over at Fan-Tastic Tuesday the challenge is ‘White on white’, why not pop over there and join the fun.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.



About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

      Thank you Elle. I see from your blog that you have been unwell. I pray that you are well on the road to recovery now.

      • Thank you much Pippa! I have good days and bad days but God is good and gives me those days and the opportunity to make the best of them. I have a couple autoimmune diseases and I’ve had 9 back surgeries and multiple surgeries for other stuff too. I’ve had a partial hysterectomy because of cancer, thyroidectomy due to Hashimoto’s Disease… However I only tell people about my trials in hopes

      • Thank you Pippa I am on the road to recovery from my pneumonia. When I get sick it takes a lot out of me because I have autoimmune diseases and my body is tired and sick, I’ve had 15 surgeries, 9 of them on my back and 1 of them being a partial hysterectomy due to cancer. I believe everything happens for a reason and God gives me each day to make a positive difference in someone’s life with my story or discussing His word but I’m so grateful to be at home and be able to craft on my good days. I look forward to following each others blogs to see what new projects we are working on. Happy blogging & God bless!
