Thoughts and Prayers

A big thank you to Cheryl for the idea of using these colours and papers for a sympathy card.
The ribbon and silver pearls idea I saw on Silke Ledlow's blog. I found a place in Australia that sells similiar pearls that Silke uses and bought some. I can't put the link on here but if you would like to know where to purchase them, please email me. My bow is something I'm very proud of...courtesy of a Bow-Easy.
Another card that once I got the main image done, came together easily. This card was ordered by a friend of mine and I think she'll be happy with it.

On another note, we've had RAIN!!! Very exciting. OH reckons maybe 50 to 75 mls (2 - 3 inches) which is just fabulous. It's rained practically all day here and it's just wonderful to see.
Happy Monday everyone.
