INKspired Blog Hop 49

Welcome to the INKspired Blog Hop. I hope you've had a wonderful week with another coming right up.

Well, it's almost the end of the school holidays, and I have to say that while it has been fantastic to spend time together as a family, I am indeed looking forward a little alone time to craft ... and perhaps get some work done without someone calling out "Muuummmm!!!" every 5 seconds. One can hope!

If you have hopped here from Barbara's blog, you're in the right spot! It's still a very busy time, so the hop is a small one this time, but what we lack in size, we've made up for in the loveliness of the cards on offer.  I hope you'll agree.

Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us to work with  ... 

Condolence cards are always difficult to make, especially choosing the right words to write inside. This card is of my friend Christine, whose Dad recently passed away. I hope it brings some comfort.

This card features the Wild About Flowers stamp set. It's the first card I've made using this set, and I loved how quick and easy it was to create a lovely card using this set.

The colour scheme is Pear Pizazz, Pool party and Basic Black.  I love these colours together ... they have a very soothing feel, I think.

I thought the flowers needed a little pop of Black, so I used the little dot stamp from the Number of Years stamp set to achieve this. I think it just ties all the element together. What do you think?

Allison is next stop in the hop, let's hop over to her and see what she has made.

Thanks so much for hopping by. See you next time :)

  1. Beautiful card Lissa. I hope it brings some comfort to your friend.

  2. Love your card Lissa and I am sure your friend will love it as well. I think the black dot in the centre of the flowers is just spot on!

  3. A wonderful card Lissa. I'm sure that's would help brighten anyone's day xx
