Sadly, I have had to make another Sympathy card for a dear friend.

I used the lovely Penny Black stamp 'Fireworks' with a Kaleidocolor 'Fresh Greens' multicoloured pad. The paper is by Pink Petticoat from the 'Waterfall Hearts' collection and the ribbon is from stash. I had the sentiment already stamped in my file - it might be Hero Arts from either 'Messages' or 'Framed Messages' clear stamp sets. Or it might be Penny Black! I really should organise my sentiments one day!

(An update: Thanks for all the kind thoughts and comments about my daughter's cancer, I appreciate them very much. You guys are a tower of strength. Good news - the chemo is definitely working and she will be CURED by Christmas, hooray!)

Wishing you all a happy weekend, and thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

What a pretty card - I too have these papers and they are so versatile. I have been thinking about you and your daughter and am pleased things are going well for her. Graham gets his results on Monday from his recent bone marrow biopsy so fingers and everything crossed that it is the result we are hoping for. We have family issues going on at the mo and I am unable to craft but hopefully I can get some crafting done soon. Take care of yourself Mags, Sheila x
