Too many good byes

I'm making the most of the final few days of crafting which I have available to me, to make a few thank you cards for the amazingly kind people who we are having to say "good bye" to.

There are too many "good byes" this week. :-(

Sometimes I find a sketch which doesn't inspire me, but when it is made up into a card, it works really well. Stampavie posted just such a sketch this week, and I'm really glad I used it.


This one is for the church, to thank them for the beautiful farewell gifts we were presented with on Sunday. It had to be non-girlie and neutral, and Colour Create's yellow, white, grey and black theme fitted the bill. DH bought me the Cuttlebug embossing folder and it is the first time I've used it. I inked the raised paper, and being a close design it took the ink really well. This also fits in with Simon Says Stamp's anything goes challenge.
