Good morning all
Can you believe that this weather is still holding! We have been just about living in our garden for the past few weeks - breakfast and dinner out there every day! - and we even had an Indian take away in the garden last night - now there's a first, there I was sitting with my curry and a glass of the new blackberry Pimms that I treat myself to in Tesco - this is the life!! - but its also why not much crafting is getting done around here.
It was actually quite an experience in our garden tonight - though nothing to do with the food. We live very close to the coast and its the Sunderland airshow tomorrow, there we were sitting eating our curry and along came a Lancaster bomber - so low you could look up and see the undercarriage clearly and then a spitfire went zipping past - then the red arrows did a few loops and finally a typhoon (no I'm not an expert - though I've seen them many times at the airshow) - but had a look at the Sunderland website to see what was going at at tonights opener. So impressive and we'll be walking down again this weekend to see the displays as they fly out over the coast and sea.
Anyway I digress I have a new card to share today for
My Time to Craft Challenge
my Whimsy Inspiration card this week
The theme at My Time to Craft is
I used the gorgeous image Full Bloom available here
from Stampart design by Kathryne at Whimsystamps
I think I've used this one before (Kathy has some gorgeous floral designs and I just love them)
but I thought that this one really lent itself to a sympathy card. I kept it very simple with the focus on the image and made it into a pretty easel shape. I personally think that a sympathy card should be simple in design - its not really the time for OTT embellies - well that's my opinion : ).
Here's what I did..
Image - Full Bloom form Stampart Design by Kathryne at Whimsy Stamps
Coloured with copics and shaded with prismacolor pencils
Sentiment - created in word
Papers - MME lost and found - blush - love these papers
Ribbon - my current favourites from a pack of american crafts ribbons bought at TK Max

For once I have the colours for you of my copics - a favourite go to combo of each colour set

Things seem to be so quiet around blogland - perhaps just a simle little sympathy card will be an easy make and we'll see you at MTTC this week - see you there
