Haven't had much time to craft the past two weeks but hope to make time this week. I had to make a card to send to an uncle and aunt though. My uncle got news the other day that he has been diagnosed with cancer of the worst kind. What do you say to people when they receive news like that.... Just absolutely horrible. I've spend a good part of my Sunday searching for poems and stuff in Dutch to put on a card and I finally found something I felt was kind of what I wanted to say. I decided to buy this Leafy frame made by Ann Vento for Whimsy Stamps and put the poem in it. Papers are very old ones from Bo Bunny. I bought these online and found them way to dark when they arrived but I thought they would work for this card. Pearls and ribbon (also behind the frame) are from stash, butterflies are by Rayher and and I used some stickles and golden liquid pearls on them and around the distressed edges.
When you are sad or hurting,
Think of all the people
who wish you the best
and are with you in spirit.
May the knowledge that so many symphatize
bring you extra strength in this difficult time.
In Dutch it's a poem of course. I'm not absolutely happy with this card but then this isn't the type of card I want to be making... but I do want them to know they are in my thoughts.
Hope to be back soon with a card for a happy occassion.
