With sympathy

Condolence cards are not the easiest to make, but I find that when I have sales for Tearfund people do tend to buy them so that they have one should they need it - sad fact of life. So I made a few ready for yesterday - this is one of them. The insert says 'with deepest sympathy'. This is for Scrapbook sisters 75: sympathy or thinking of you, also for The house that stamps build DCC314 sympathy card challenge.

The butterflies are holographic so they look more purple on here because of the way the light has caught them - with the light on them another way they look more pinky red.

Sticky notes at the zoo

Here are a couple of sticky note holders I made for my sale yesterday. They are very simple and a good way of using up offcuts of card, which are then scored on my Hougie board and stuck around a block of sticky notes as you can see in the second picture of the zebra ones.

The stickers/chipboard were from Poundland or the 99p store.

These are for Challenge up your life 65: zoo animals, also for Polka doodles 11: animal or a bird.
