Thinking of You Again. . . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Are we all happy and well? I hope so.
I will probably be up when this goes live, watching the qualifying for the Japanese GP (yes, I am potty lol!!!) Will be even pottier tomorrow getting up to watch the GP itself, then I'm at work (had to swap shifts)

Thank you again for your truly lovely comments on my last card. I know you shouldn't have favourites but I do have a soft spot for that card. 
Anne, I think it was you who asked where to get a Krylon pen from. I got mine from Inkylicious at the GBCF in August but they do mail order. Ebay is the only other UK source I found when I was looking. I'm going to get the silver and copper pens too as I'm smitten lol!!!

Now, today's card is the other one of the sympathy cards I had to send last month so the Tiger Lily die made another appearance.
I used the mask, to emboss, with the centre die in situ to keep the nice embossed edge of the die too and some extra foliage from an SB set.

White card base A5 in size
SB Majestic Labels 25
SB Tiger Lily 
SB Botanical Swirls and Accents (for extra foliage)
That Special Touch Moroccan Mask
Distress Inks
White satin ribbon

Like I said before, I like to keep these cards fairly uncluttered but, hopefully with a bit of understated elegance.

Just a couple of sponsor messages. . . . . . .
Ita, you make the hospital sound like a fancy hotel but I'm sure you would still rather be at home. Fingers crossed for healthier days for you chuck.
Jackie, my goodness, you don't let the grass grow. You concentrate on getting yourself sorted and pop by when you can. We'll keep your place warm for you lol!!!

Well, that's it from The Pond today. Have a fantabulous weekend and enjoy the last of the warmish weather as we seem set for cooler temps next week.

  13. Hi Ang and everyone,this card is lovely ,you got the right mix,elegant bad caring ,I is one of the most difficult card for all us to make,so10/ 10. I will try and make it with the Dies I have.I will give credit on it,saying it was designed by you.If that is O.K.
    Yes the Hospital was like a Hotel,just like the one in Cork,that I spent months in.
    The frustrating thing is ,I have no results,and I am worried ,

  14. Simply elegant Perfect for these sad occasions I do forget to use a mask to emboss with! And to leave the die in place (cut side up naturally) makes it so professional looking

  15. What a pretty card!! I love how you embossed the border! Hugs!

  16. Fantastic creation Ang, love the die, brilliant design and colours.xx

    The Journey is the Start

  20. What a stunning design.

  21. Hi Ang,
    This is a lovely card. I too love the way you've embossed the frame with the die still in place. I occasionally do this if I have the time to triple check the sandwich as I feel sure I'll cut into the embossing folder some time! Thank you for the info on the gold pen. My name came out of the hat on Sue's blog yesterday - how chuffed am I! I also appear in Christine Emberson's blog (her last day of opening her lovely shop -boohoo). And finally, I had an email read out on C&C - must get one sent in for Johns show! Well, that's enough of a waffle, best wishes, Anne O

  22. Wow Ang! You are like the die-whisperer! I have never had any luck embossing a die cut piece, or die cutting an embossed piece, I always look the detailing! What a tasteful sympathy card! hugs :)
