Deepest Sympathy


Sympathy cards should be fairly simple and elegant I feel. Sadly I need to keep a few in stock and this is one I just made for stock. The paper is from the Santoro pack, image and sentiment are both Inkylicious.  I bought a new set of 3 sympathy sentiments at Summer Crafting as I thought the font was lovely. The butterflies are Memory Box with added pearls. I simply inked arund the edges of the image and sentiment.

Yesterday's car boot went really well, we took £107 which was more than we hoped for so that has been put away to help pay for a short break we are having next month. Eeeeeeek was going to write September and then realised that is next month.

I wasn't going to do any craft fairs this month but an opportunity has come up to share a shop space within the hospital next Thursday. As the hospital fairs are my best fairs and this space is opposite outpatient's reception which is always busy I had to take the opportunity so busy, busy, busy as always.

This is so suitable for a sympathy card. The image and sentiment font are just right. I can't bring myself to make sympathy cards, I don't know why.
