It was with great sadness that we learn yesterday morning that my hubby's best mate passed away.... I am so glad that hubby got to spend some time this past week with him. He was in intensive care in Auckland but on Saturday was transferred back to his local hospital in Levin. At least he was home ( sort of anyway) We will travel down on Wednesday for his funeral on Thursday and then back home on Friday. It is an 6-7 hour trip down to Levin by car.
I quickly managed to get a sympathy card made for his partner and his brother and sister and the families.
Terry on Flickr and it was my inspiration for this. I stamped the Silhouette Grass onto wheat coloured card and embossed it in clear EP. I then used a number of distress inks and sponged them over, finishing with Aged Mahogany. I edged the top and bottom of with a gold marker. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of the wheat card in the Aged Mahogany and added brads to secure it. Finished with a little dragonfly stamped in Aged Mahogany onto gold vellum and secured with a glue dot.
( a big thanks to Hero Arts who tweeted the card on Flickr- much appreciated)
Today we had our friends Michael and Yvonne round for lunch to finalise some of the plans for England. Michael heads over in about 2 weeks - and as he is the chief organiser of the canal boat trip we needed to get everything organised. After they left I managed to put together the card I started yesterday. I've done a pile of watercolour backgrounds using Joy's technique... this one used one of the shell stamps from Hero Arts
Well thanks all for stopping by... take care and hope you all have a great week.
