About Me

Perth, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg who lives with his girlfriend Kim and their wee girl Freya and dog Buddy. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and I love making cards for Charity and also for commissions. I love scrapbooking, and I get my inspiration from my Grandchildren. They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

Bottom of the List

Good Afternoon!!  It is a lovely sunny day here in Perthshire.  It definitely feels Spring-like, so hopefully the weather will start to improve.

Here is a card I was asked to make.  Sympathy cards are always so difficult. I would say that they were definitely at the bottom of the "like" list for Crafters.  I do like the way this one turned out though.  I used a Clarity Stamp, and card and ribbon from the stash.

This card can be used for several things.  Birthday, Thinking of You, or simply Hello!!

The bird and the sentiment are both from Clarity.  
I used a Martha Stewart punch and matted and layered it up. 
Ribbons and gems from stash.

That's all from me today, I'm off to colour a digital image from Rick St. Dennis - Great fun!!

Take care now!

Sometimes simple looks just as fabulous. But I agree sympathy cards are probably at the bottom of everyone's list. I don't think it's because they are hard to make but more what they represent.

Thank you for stopping by my blog it was great to hear from you. I can't wait to see what you do with your pringle tubes. I bet it will be spectacular xx

Making sympathy cards is on my list of "to do's" but I never get there. I'm sure it's because it's not a happy card to make and I end up at the drug store buying a card for the sad event. I love this card and the simplicity of it is what makes it elegant. Perhaps if I didn't try to dress it up so much I could get a half dozen made. As I get older, my friends get older, as my friends get older, their parents get older...what a vicious cycle of life! :) I think I dislike getting older the most because of seeing those I care about and love crossing over and leaving us earthly bound humans here without them. I need to buckle down and make some of these cards, however, and appreciate the inspiration of your card. Hugs, Gail
