Least favourite cards

Hi Guys,

One of my beautiful work mates lost her Mum the other week. She had been deteriorating due to Dementia and was about to move into a nursing home. As such, even though it was a blessing that she passed away, the family mourns the loss of the woman she was. I made a card for all of those of us who were Tom's fellow night owls. I was inspired by the 2nd card in this post, which I first saw on the SU Connection Showcase. Forgive the poor quality pic.

I used Crumb Cake & Marina Mist and was pleased to find this retired DSP (from the gorgeous Parisian Breeze papers, now retired). I stamped the floral image from the 'Elements of Style' set and the sentiment is from 'Thoughts & Prayers'. I added some Marina Mist ribbon and one of the lovely Vintage Brads. I hope it meant something to Tom at this sad time.

I made four birthday cards the other day but haven't time to take any pics. I've been cleaning today, and rearranging my bedroom as I just got my new chest of drawers delivered. It is a lovely white slimboy that I got for 40% off!!!! Now to head to the shops & then home for a nap before work tonight (yucko).

Hope you're surviving the heat, and thinking of all my North Qld family & friends. I pray that the cyclone diminishes to nothing before it hits.

What a pretty combination. This is such a lovely card for the circumstance. I'm sure your friend appreciated it. Hugs xxaxx
