Sympathy Carnations

Afternoon all and thank you for dropping in to see me today. 

Was woken early this morning from Mum's carer saying they were 
at the hospital. Mum had a fall and went by ambulance to hospital. 

Been a bit of a "no go" day for me today, worried as you can imagine.

Have just made this quick CAS card and think that maybe 
due to my thoughts, this card, is a reflection of my feelings. 

But here it is

First I used one of my cut down pieces of card - yes the pink colour today. 
As you can see - my mopped up card stocks are one of my trade marks...
just love the way I get something different each time and there is NO 
waste of inks/ watercolours/ powders etc. 

Inked up the Clarity Carnation stamp with black ink and used a watercolor 
pen to colour in the flower. 

Added Worn lipstick ink to the card blank ....and

added a little extra inks around the edge of the topper. 

 Mounted the topper onto the card blank and added a snippet of 
card sentiment from my stash.... Sympathy. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for your comments and look forward to a better day tomorrow.
