Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello!! How are you all, my lovely followers? I am hopefully back in the world of blog after a lovely few days break. I took Keiran camping last weekend, then we went to Bolton's Food Festival on Monday, and today we have walked for miles and finished off with a lovely Indian meal, slightly spoiled by the entire lot of drivers from our local cab firm having a row in the very beautiful restaurant! Still, we got our meal free! ;)

So once Keiran went to bed, I decided to fit in some much needed crafting, and came up with this...

I have used the gorgeous Hostess only set, Simply Sketched and stamped it in Calypso Coral, then filled with Crisp Cantaloupe.

The embossed panel is created using the new Pretty Print EF from the upcoming Seasonal catalogue (available to order from as of 29th August...not long now!) I gently coloured the edges with Crisp Cantaloupe using a Sponge Dauber, as I also did on the main panel. I finished with a butterfly from Papillon Potpourri.

Cardstock - Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Stamp - Simply Sketched
Ink - Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe
Embossing - Pretty Print EF
Punch - Bitty Butterfly
Other - Sponge Dauber, Stamp-a-ma-jig

If you would like to get your hands on any of the Hostess sets, or any of the new upcoming products, please do contact me for details of how!


Thanks so much for bearing with me recently. I hope I will be a little more on the ball again now!
