Simply Sketched with sympathy

Sadly I needed a sympathy card this week. Simply Sketched was out on my desk from Monday - although the result couldn't be more of a contrast to this card I showed here on Monday. Come and see:

I thought a peaceful nature scene would be appropriate. The leaves and the bird were stamped off the edge of the notecard and I added the sentiment using Basic Grey ink.

I coloured everything in using markers, adding highlights with my white Signo gel pen.

I'll be linking this card up with Make My Monday where the theme is Nature.

Our cat Tuppence has been behaving quite strangely (nothing new there!) She has abandoned her usual haunts in the back garden and the house and has taken up permanent patrol duty in our tiny front garden, refusing even to come in at night! She pops in for meals, which she orders loudly and bossily, and then demands to leave the house again. One side effect of this is that our back garden has become heavily populated with birds of all sorts. It's such a pleasure to see them out there although I fear if she knew what was going on Tuppence would be apoplectic with rage!

See you tomorrow,


  1. Dear Vicky,
    I love your stampin-arts...
    Many greetings from Germany,

  2. Fantastic "sketchy" card Vicky.
    Good to hear the birds in the garden isn't it - now that Tuppence isn't scaring them away.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  3. This is a beautiful card Vicky. So lovely. Although such a shame when we have to make sympathy cards. I hope all is well with you. Your blog is as inspiring as ever xxx

  4. A stunning scene Vicky, and lovely subtle colours
