Thursday thoughts

It's been a busy week but during that I had to made two sympathy cards for people I know who had parents pass away suddenly last week. It's a reminder for me that even when I'm not having a good day, I should be grateful that I still have both my parents.

This first one is for There She Goes Challenge #91 (sketch), Raise the Bar #50 (Nesties - scallop cirlce, Embellishments - pearls and ribbon, White) and Etsy Inspired Challenge #123 (I picked this painting and was inspired by the flowers and the colours). Thanks to all the challenge hostesses for the inspiration. My apologies - this photo isn't fabulous - had to take it in low light and then send it off).

This next one is for the SCS Colour Challenge #307, SCS Sketch Challenge #316 and SCS Free For All #47 (two different embossing folders). Thanks to challenge hostesses for the great challenges!

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day,
