So Saffron Sympathy FMS #125 & CTD #281

 I need to replenish my supply of sympathy cards, and because when you need them, you're unlikely to be in a creative mode, I like to keep a few on hand. I have been feeling a little off-colour all day and that is my excuse for mirror-reversing Narelle's lovely sketch. It wasn't until I began to place all the pictures here on the blog that I fully realised! I'm sure that it won't cause a problem to the lovely ladies at Freshly Made Sketches, they're a forgiving group and permit 'artistic liscence'. If you visit their blog you will find oodles more inspiration.

I went to The Color Throwdown for some colour inspiration, they are rather cheery colours, I'm not sure how I will feel about them when I need the card, but it seemed a good idea when I started. The stamp set is Happy Watercolor, a greeting comes from Thoughts and Prayers and it is mounted on the baby stamp from Label Love, I really liked the checked pattern in black and white and the Artisan Label Punch makes this stamp set so easy to use. The smaller oval punch was perfect for the greeting and covered the other words on the baby stamp.
Thanks for visiting my blog
