Sombre Succulents

Hello, crafting friends!
I had a quick, clean and simple crafty session this morning. I made a sympathy card which, thank goodness, I don't need, but which fits the mood here in England.

This is a very quick card - in fact the most amount of time was spent re-inking my black ink pad before I started! I positioned the spray from Uniko's Happy Succulents over the top of a nice, thick card base and stamped it repeatedly using my stamp positioner to get a good, crisp impression. The card was finished with a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks, also from Uniko, and I coloured the seed heads in with a fineliner pen.
I'm linking this card up with AAA Cards where the theme is No-Layer Syympath; also Less is More where the challenge is to make a CAS black and white card.

The temperatures have dropped in the heart of England and it's time to clear up the garden a little and trim the hedges - if a Certain Someone might move themselves please!!

My darling Eva looks a little sombre in this photo doesn't she, but I can assure you she is just playing to the gallery. She has opened her eyes but is basically saying that she's not moving because she's in the middle of a snoozle thanks very much and needs her beauty sleep. I might also add that she has a variety of beds and sofas to sleep on but prefers to nap on the cold, hard paving stones!

Sending hugs,


  1. Perfectly CAS sympathy card. Always best to make them before they are needed.
