Some Cards...

... since I needed some spare sympathy cards. Not that you ever WANT them.
But it's always good to have an assortment of cards tucked away.
And doing the FEELING SKETCHY #136 challenge meant I got this one done:
I've stamped the image inside the frame, which came from
Anna U - but I flipped it over & painted it! The little glass
beads are from Sanna. I am so LUCKY to have scrappy
mates who help 'feed my habit', LOL!
The sketch:
Then I saw this sketch from SKETCH N SCRAP #65:
So I used it to create this one:
 FUSSY cut those little birds, then glossy accented them.
I put the close up so you could see the lovely sheen on the 
gold embossing!
So there you have it! Feeling a lot more 'scrappy' atm.
Hope you are too ~ Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  1. So sweet. The clear dots on the first card (Sanna's glass beads?) make me think of tears. That makes it seems so special for a Sympathy card. All of these are lovely Lizzy. The gold emboss is so pretty and you did great fussy cutting! I enjoy doing that! Great inspirations. j.

  6. These cards are lovely, and yes you hope you dont need them, but life has those moments in it.. And yes I am feeling a bit more scrappy too.. must have been christmas and sugar overload for me.. very sluggish... trying to enjoy not having to do the school run for just a bit longer... have a good day.. been so very hot up here that last few days.. quite energy sapping....
