May 2011 Blog Hop

Papertrey Ink are holding their May blog hop, with the theme of flowers.  So i thought I'd share with you a sympathy card that uses olive greens and white, satin ribbon and a flower stamped in green and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I really like making sympathy cards; I like that at a time of sadness and heartbreak, a homemade card can send my message, like a big hug in an envelope.

I'd love to hear what you like to put on your sympathy cards, so please feel free to share in the comments box!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Envelope cards

Here are the examples of the envelope cards that I promised in the last blog; the possibilities of design with these are so vast, and each one I create turns out so differently.

The weather here in Margate is still beautiful, the sun is shining, the birds are tweeting, and the grass has turned to straw! Our local farmers are now hoping for rain, but while the sun is still bright, I am off to enjoy the weather by walking down to the shops before the night closes in, and I put Doctor Who on!

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend, I look forward to sharing with you tutorial soon. My last tutorial I posted was back in December, so I think it is about time to do one!
