An elderly relative of mine died recently, she was such a fighter and the words "We don't think she'll get through this" had been said on more than one occasion - she grew more frail each time, but did prove them wrong, until this last time - you've got to admire someone who fights as hard as she did.
Anyway this is the card I made to send to her daughters, it fit's the "I'm sorry" theme for this weeks midweek challenge, so I decided to share it. Sympathy cards are never easy are they?
On to happier things.
I saw the first cards featuring cute bears made from circles of paper absolutely ages ago - it was the very talented Jo who introduced them (to me anyway,) and obviously they went down very well because there are versions of the idea all over the place now.
Until I got my Robo I'd never had a try - I just never seemed to have the right sized punches for the job - but Robo can cut circles any size I tell it woohoo!
So here' are my first cards made with the circles-teddies, I'm really chuffed with them and I hope other people think they're cute too.
I'm busy trying to replenish and update the box of cards that Hubby keeps at work, so have made a few cards with Cuttlebug embossing folders. Not the best cards I've ever made, but hopefully a bit of practise will bring some better ideas for using these folders.
