with sadness...

There seems to be such sad news about at the moment - I found out this week one of the girls that I grew up with has passed away also younger than me and another victim of cancer... So sad it makes you think of those closest around you and makes you cherish loved ones... It has also made me think about the people that try to cause trouble around you and that if you give them any reaction this is what they are looking for... So I have been thinking a lot this week and I am sure that it is not good for me! ;-)
I had a email this morning that did make me smile - I have been made the blog of the week by Crafty Bloggers Network ( I have linked to their blog so you can take a look!) So if you are new to my blog - welcome and I hope you like my craftiness!
The card that I have made this morning is a sympathy card for my friend's family and something I found quite difficult... I have used the main stamped image from Just Believe - you will have guessed that this is one of  my favourite stamp sets! However I feel that the silhouette suited what I wanted to create. I stamped the image in basic black and inked the edges of the layer. I stamped the sentiment from a retired stamp set from Close as a Memory. Again inking the edges. For the background I used a piece of whisper white card and stamped the background. I added two brads for detail and 3 card candy on dimensional to the bottom left of the card.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog and I hope you like my card! Debbi xxx
