With Sympathy ..........

cards are always difficult to make as I find my self thinking of the one who has passed and who has been left behind when I was asked to make a card this time I knew my PTI stamps would come good again with the everyday blessings set.
I stamped over the background with chalk inks then stamped the cross and sentiment and just added a bow.
Hope its just enough.

Framed I was ..............................

Well the decoupage sheet from the Remember When Series 2 is.
I couldn't resist putting it into a frame and making it a keepsake gift for someone special.


I found this frame along with some others and thought it was ideal
for any of the La Pashe series in sepia.
Infact the colour series will go well too.
Check out the new series and other ideas on Jaks, Bevs and Karens blog.

Mmmnnn Pie ..............................

There was always the temptation to take that piece of pie from the neighbours
while it was cooling on a shelf
Who do you think will get to it first the young boy or the dog LOL
I made the card into a sort of journal and included spaces
where money or a momento could be added for when opened.

Bon-bons, Sherbet lemons,Lollipops and Liquorice

You will remember them well from your childhood
and here with
the Remember When Series 2 "Sweet Treats" from La Pashe

you can remember them again.


with this georgous sweetie shop decoupage
I couldn't resist making it into an actual shop card and it gave me a reason to use my scorpal and nestabilites to enhance the shops features I chalked the windows with a sky blue to give the illusion of glass and added some flowers in a window box from my craft stash.

Check and see what Jak , Bev and Karen have been doing.
