Still hear the Laughter.......


Why do I always feel a little guilty when I abandon my blog and don't upload for a week or so?

I'm still creating and crafting...just that right now I can't upload it onto my blog as its 'secret squirrel' stuff lol

This weekend we received very sad news re a family member. So to be honest blogs have been the last thing on my mind anyway. I made this extremely simple card using one of my favourite saying stamps from Stamping Sensations. Its on acetate as you maybe able to see and gives quite an etheral feel because of its translucancy.

I shall try and get round to visiting you all asap...apologies for missing out on all the fabulous work you are all creating.

Please click onto the image for a much clearer view.

It's perfect, Jo. I think this quote is very emotional and beautiful. It is always the most difficult task to make sympathy cards. Yours is superb.

Stunning & beautiful sentiment.
Life throws lemons often, roll with them & get back when you can. As for projects Im sure they will be well worth waiting for.

If you added any more the card would be spoilt! Love how simplicity can speak volumes! Well done for being brave enough to leave it as is (i know how tempting it can be to add!) Sorry about you sad news. I recently had a break from blogging, and it can be quite refreshing, so I hope you enjoy the break also.

It's perfect! Your card shows how transparant and fragile life can be sometimes.
