Cala Lily

Hello to all my crafty pals and I hope you are all well and coping with whatever life is trowing at you these days. Thank you for looking and commenting on the shiny ones, I appreciate your doing so very much. Hopefully I am more careful with what I buy nowadays. There are a few non-repeats still lurking in the cupboard but I will use them a little at a time. 
Today's card is to meet the simplest request, simple sympathy cards/thinking of you, that can be sent to the families of the kennel customers when one of their pets have passed away. I have been told that my lily cards will be perfect, peel-offs are fine and the inserts are to be totally plain. I can make whatever I want so long as I keep them simple, so you will all have to keep me in line, lol. 
I am sorry that my commenting is very erratic, we are having trouble with the broadband in this area all of a sudden and spent hours without it yesterday. I will try to keep in touch with you all.

  3. Good afternoon Flora,
    I love that beautiful image, making a sunning elegant card.
    Perfect for what they wil be used for........that sounds a bit silly it is after all a "sympathy" card. I mean for where they are going and what they will use them for.
