Sympathy Card

Good morning,

It looks like summer has finally arrived in the UK!  Well at least for yesterday and today anyway.  Hopefully it will last going into the weekend as I feel some much need relaxing is the the hammock! Oh yes, coz that's how I roll!

My hubby's cousin sadly passed away recently and this is the card I made for her daughter and family. I absolutely love these Lily of the Valley art pads, they're so versatile and perfect when you need to quickly pop a card in the post.

The gingham ribbon is navy and white but for some reason in this photo it looks black and white...bizarre!  I'm blaming my computer screen and not my photography skills!
