With Sympathy


Yay, it's Thursday. I took today off work to catch up on myself after yesterday's fun as I'm off to Peterborough at the weekend. Just one day of work to go and then a week off. Double Yay! Don't worry, I'm not joining a shopping telly craft channel, although I did consider ram raiding the warehouse (I am joking, honest). My trip is all mad bunny woman related and I'll fill you in with the details whilst whiling away the time in my hotel room. 
A really simple and easy card again today. I die cut the io sentiment panel twice once in black and once in grey and offset them slightly (a different grey might have been better as it looks like your eyes are going funny) to give a shadow effect. I mat and layered black and white card on a 6x6 card blank and stuck the panel on. I did consider adding a grey mat, but I didn't think ahead and so had cut the panel out of the side rather than "gutting" it and so ran out of the colour. A few black gems to finish. Apologies if I haven't visited you yet this week, I'm back on my catch up mission! See you tomorrow for an oldie.

  11. Hi Cara
    Spookily I was mooching this way as I hadn't realised that you too have been part of Missy Darnells UK Tour until I just saw you on her Knutsford leg (metaphorically speaking lol!) The lovely lady took off from Heathrow 20 mins ago but hopefully she will return.
    Anyhoo, I was drawn to this elegant card as I have 2 sympathy cards to make. The die is really lovely but not sure what "io" is? Very tasteful and classy.
    Best wishes.
