Sending You Love

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a good week.
The card I've made tonight was made with a heavy heart. Its for one of the mums on my birth board who unfortunately lost her baby last week. Its so so sad. We've followed eachothers progress through pregnancy and her little boy never left the hospital but was well looked after.

We are having a raffle in August to raise money for the hospital that cared for him and we also having a just giving page which you can donate to HERE

I didn't want to give a sympathy card as standard, it seemed wrong, I wanted something bright and upbeat. She has another son and so I thought Pinwheels!

I used the colour palette at Skipping Stones and the sketch from Retro Sketches

I based my card on THIS card from Jen W. So thank you for the inspiration :)
Here is my card! 

So the shapes are cut using the Teardrop shape in Microsoft Word. The rest is a bit of freehand drawing on the edges, I felt it needed more as it seemed flat before! The sentiment is also created in word. The edges are inked with some worn lipstick distress ink to roughen it up a bit :)

I hope you like it and I hope my dear mummy friend likes it.

Take care,



  1. SUPER cute card! Love it! Thanks for playing along with us over at Skipping Stones Design!
