Thinking of you

Hello ... 
I hope you had a good weekend ... 

Yesterday my friend and neighbour Helen popped over with tears in her eyes... Her Dad had passed away suddenly ... No matter how many friends and family you have, it still feels like a lonely journey you're on in those early days... We chatted and hugged for awhile and later I made a little card for her

Though you can't really see ... I stamped the grasses first in Frayed Burlap distress ink and stamped again, slightly offset, with Versamark and embossed in clear powder

I also gave it a light spray with Vibez 'snow storm' which leaves a lovely soft sheen - and yes, she's a cat lover

Helen's dad was a keen gardener who every year made her magnificent hanging baskets... So DH and I  took a trip out and when I saw this I thought this would make a fitting gift 

... which she can then plant in her garden.

I hope you are having a good start to your week ... Be safe

Till soon
