Fifth Avenue Floral sympathy


Fifth Avenue Floral Bill'13 (4)Hi bloggies!

Life is hectic! I know I say that a lot … but it JUST IS!!! Am in planning mode for Skye’s 21st party on 5th July … and we have a trip to Vanuatu to visit Gav’s sister & her family – who are missionaries in Vila – also in July. I have so many things running through my head … I really need to sit and write some lists!!

Fifth Avenue Floral Bill'13 (1)Fifth Avenue Floral Bill'13 (3)This was a sympathy card that I found via Pinterest. Yes … my new ‘go-to’ for ideas … especially at the moment when I don’t have a single original idea in my head!!! This is a slight adaption of Donna Heber’s card. I just loved this one the instant I saw it … so I dusted off my Fifth Avenue Floral set … and this is the result!


Fifth Avenue Floral Bill'13 (5)I thought I would show you a close up of the flower. Not my best colouring … but it is very pretty anyway! The details for colouring the rose are on my card recipe at the end of this post!

Well … I MUST start looking for ideas for Skye’s invitations … need to get them done & posted! Will be back as soon as I can!

PS … Sorry the pics are a little ‘blown away’!

    Very pretty Andrea. That rose is beautiful with the soft coloring. The gold embossing is a lovely touch! I love Pinterest… except I pin way too many ideas but not do any! LOL!

    What a beauty …. love your rose image combined with the Love and Sympathy and Flowering Flourishes images. The gold trimmed ribbon is so beautiful with the gold embossed rose! Lovely work!

    Wow Andrea. This is so gentle and delicate. I love it. Your colouring of the rose is magical…..lifelike even. The gold and pink tones are beautiful. Love the softness of this one. Really must not part with this set. GORGUS outlines…. (insert mind now drifing to another creative space….hee hee hee)
    Good luck with those invites. Cannot wait to see them.
    Thanks for the blog love too. MWAH ooxx
