Not the nicest of cards....

Here is a card I made a while ago & forgot to pop on here. I made it for one of my Aunts who's Mom sadly passed away.
It's the first time I'd made a 'with sympathy' card & so wasn't to sure how to go about it, ie, colours, style etc..... I just wanted something to express that our thoughts were with her.

Pp's are Laura Ashley & Coordinations, sentiment stamped & embossed, lace, ribbon & eyelets from stash.
Bank holiday weekend again....yay! & so far so good with the weather, lets hope it lasts!!!
Whatever you are up to I hope you enjoy yourselves!
Hugs, Kerry xxx

well that's weird Kerry, I typed out a comment for this beautie earlier and it's gone....spooky..so here goes again..

I agree Kerry sympathy cards aren't the nicest cards to make but you've done a marvelous job, the soft tones and the way you've cut the papers are perfect, fab layout altogether. You've also reminded me that I still haven't used my Laura Ashley papers, may have to do something about that...xx vicki xx
