Sympathy

Hello, is the weekend and I couldn't be happier, even though I am off to work in 15 minutes. The sun is shining and it looks like spring has well and truly sprung, is amazing how a few rays improve your whole mood.
However I wasn't happy at the beginning of the week when I found out that Jules grandma passed away. I know that she would have been 99 this year so a good age but still very difficult for Jules and her family. I had to make her card to tell her that I am thinking of her at this difficult times and I choose one of my favourite items from the new catalogue the two step bird punch.


A simple sympathy card that was made using Basic black, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock and the lovely bird punch. Sentiment came from the ever so useful Basic Phrases.
I also used the same punch to make some of my swaps for the training day in Sheffield.



How cute huh? So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate, Chip, along with some gorgeous new papers and I mean gorgeous.
I am sure this punch will do well but wait until you see the whole of the new mini IT IS JUST SOOO YUMMY!!! Talk about seeing it, tomorrow I am taking part in a organized blog hop along with some of my fellow demos to showcase amazing projects all made with the new mini. Is a huge hop and I am sure you will be blown away by the amazing projects. Make sure you check us out after 10am. Till then hugs xxx
