Birds and Flowers

I was lucky enough to win some stamps over at Joy's blog and one of them was "Flower Bird Garden".  I had to make a condolence card this weekend as a friend lost her father.... and I wanted some thing that sort of said, " I'm sorry" but wasn't to dreary.  So pulled out the new stamp and some new embossing powders

Condolence Card

This embossing powder is by Stampendous and is called Pomegranate.  It really looks stunning.  I coloured the birds and flowers with distress ink.  The ribbon is a bit that was wrapped around some flowers I got for my birthday.   

I'm feeling a bit peeved today as I am having issues with my medical insurer about getting pre-approval for my back operation.  For some reason, they think the procedure is something new and it needs to go through their new procedure area... which is crazy as my surgeon has been doing this for over 2 years and on their customers as well.... now they want a letter from him.... Now it looks like I've missed July dates for surgery and if they do approve, it might now be August before I can have it.... So continuing back and leg pain for some time to come.

That's me for the night.... hope all is going well in your place in the world.

Its never great to make a sympathy card but I love this one Dawn. Love your colour combinations. Hope you get your insurance sorted so you can have your op soon. Best wishes to you.

Love that pomegranate color! And as Sally said, no one wants to have to make or receive a sympathy card, but this one is really nice.
Sorry to hear about the insurance nightmare- I hope they can get it straightened out quickly for you. It's no fun being in pain- wishing you all the best!

Dealing with insurance companies it's so frustrating, isn't it? Sorry you have to go through it all, Dawn! Love your beautiful card! Looks fab embossed in the darker color!

Hi Dawn! Love your card, you know how I love colored embossing powders! :> And so great that you won that stamp! I am sorry to hear about your problems with the insurance! No fun and I hope it only gets better. I live with a lot of neck and shoulder pain so I understand!
