Hello there, Happy Saturday!
I am happier this Saturday than most because I am finally on annual leave! Its been a rather long week....and I've worked many more hours than I should....but finally I have a week off! I'm not going anywhere...I just have some day trips planned and lots of me time! Ohhh.....and of course there will be afternoon tea! I have three different teas planned this week....one with mum, a Charlie and the Chocolate factory themed tea and another burlesque tea. Read about them over at my afternoon tea blog! As a result of all this tea I will also be running a lot this week!!
Anyway, we have a new challenge for you over at My Time to Craft and this week its an interesting one - we'd like you to create a card or project with "Sympathy" as a theme. Now I say this is an interesting theme as I love to see how everyone interprets it. Providing sympathy comes in many forms and for many different reasons, and from personal experience I know that everyone deals with situations where sympathy is given in very different ways. We saw an awful lot of sympathy cards when Dad passed away from our amazing friends and family and I was struck by how similar they all were. With this in mind I have tried to create something a little bit different....
Instead of white, which seems to dominant a lot of sympathy cards, I have chosen soft pastel colours on a Kraft background. I have also added a little bit of sparkle to my card. Now 'm not saying that there is anything wrong with the traditional sympathy cards that you see, I just wanted something a little bit different.
For more inspiration please pop to the My Time to Craft challenge blog to see what the lovely DT ladies have created this week - and I can't wait to see what you come up with.
I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Bling
Stamping Sensations - summer colours
I'm also hoping that having this week off will mean more time for crafting and doing some blog hopping ....things that I have really missed recently!
Thanks for popping by today,
