Couple of sympathy cards

Whoohoo a nice long weekend for me!  We'd pc problems in work these past couple of days so I treated myself to today off, good timing with the Bank Holiday on Monday :)
I was in 'cleaning mode' today, and torpedoed through the house, so I'm nice and tidy and ready for visitors.  But sure you only get visitors when the house is a tip ;)

I've been making a couple of sympathy cards for my stash.

This first one uses my new favourite bouquet from Prima.  I really must sit down and have a proper play with the colouring as this was a bit of a rush.

This second one was inspired by this oooold DP, and my pretty flowers from Power Poppy. 


  1. I think these are gorgeous. I love CAS cards for Sympathy. Awesome coloring! Thanks for sharing with us at Penny's and hope to see you again!

  2. Two wonderful cards. Enjoy your long weekend. Cara x

  3. Two very pretty cards, Lynne, with gorgeous, delicate colouring. Perfect for those difficult Sympathy cards.

    I smiled at the phrase 'I torpedoed through the house'! I must do the same, though I'm less of a torpedo and more of the slowest horse at the back of a cavalry charge!

    Have a great weekend, and I hope you have sunshine on BH Monday!

    love Mags B x

  4. Lynne, these are gorgeous! I just ordered the new Flower Poppy image...can't wait to have the time to color it up! Beautifully done, dear friend! Hugs...

  5. Beautiful cards. They will be much appreciated. I've got to do some housecleaning this weekend, too. We've got company coming on May 5 for 10 days, so the house has to be cleaned from top to bottom before they arrive. Makes me tired just thinking about it! :)
