With Love & Caring

Hi, well another week over and the start of hopefully a relaxing weekend, No craft with my friends tomorrow as Judy is busy - in fact we may not have craft for several weeks as she is off to Bali soon for a holiday. We were all moaning about withdrawals last week,
It has been another blustery, overcast day today, not a lot of sunshine. I went out to a craft group this morning, stopped in at the local shops to look for a black 3/4 sleeve top. It wasn't easy to find one, I had to go to 4 shops before I found a top - it was the only style in the shop and there were only 4 left, I tried on two sizes and decided on the smaller size. Luckily, I actually like it too! The top is to wear in a choir concert next month, I'm hoping it will not be too hot by then, we usually wear a white blouse and black skirt which are all the same. This time they wanted us to wear the black 3/4 sleeve top and black trousers and luckily they don't all have to be the same, it would be a nightmare trying to get so many of the same product because all the spring season clothing is out now.
The card I made for today is a Sympathy card as I don't make very many of them and I thought it would be good to have a couple in my card stash.
The basecard is SU Elegant Eggplant (I think) DSP is from Rosie's Papers - mini stack
The image was pricked and stitched (paper embroidery technique) and I coloured the hands with Copics. The sentiment and butterfly are from the same set made by SU, I coloured the butterfly with a copic marker, I corner punched the white piece of card and matted it onto bluecard stock. I cut the sentiment out with the wide oval punch and finished it off with faux stitching using a Marvy Marker,
I would like to enter this into Flutter By Wednesday #172 Challenge which is "Anything goes", must include a butterfly, fairy or angel.
Well, off to finish watching CSI Miami and then bed,
