Simple Sympathy!!!

Oh I so do not like making sympathy cards. I usually tend to do 'thinking of you' or 'you are in our thoughts' but I had a request from the shop to make some.
The background paper is from the Modern Heritage Natural set by The Clipart Fairy as is the plaque although I added my own wording. I layered this onto some brown card for contrast.
A piece of ribbon and a flower to finish off.
The printing was done onto some thin linen textured cardstock and looks very, very nice.
The collection is also available in pink.

Well Ruby has had a bit of an off day today the poor little mite. Another runny nose and more chomping of fingers so I expect it's teeth again. We didn't take her out as it was pretty cold but tomorrow we are taking her to a play centre for a couple of hours to cheer her up.
I'm off to snuggle on the sofa and carry on with my crotcheting. I'm making dinner mats with a lacy edging and they are looking OK so far......for saying I haven't done any crotchet work for ages.
Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Know what you mean about the sympathy cards Sheila but unfortunately they are sometimes necessary. Once again you've excelled at the classy look. I love those backing papers and the colour is gorgeous.

    Sorry Ruby's not been a very happy bunny today and hope she'll be feeling better tomorrow. Teeth are nothing but trouble but we need 'em, Lol!

    I haven't done any crocheting for years either. Still got all my patterns (well I inherited them from my much loved Grandmother because I was the only one who could crochet and follow a pattern) and hooks.
