Unfortunately yesterday I received some rather sad news which left me wishing I could do something, anything, to help. And unfortunately it is one of those situation where there isn't really anything you can do but just let the people know your there and thinking of them.
So in the spirit of today, I decided to make a card.
I made this decision about 5 minutes before my chance to visit them. So reached for the internet to inspire me. I found this sketch at Tracey F's blog for the My Scraps & More WCMD Blog Hop.
Armed with the sketch I merely rummaged through my scraps stash and the card was finished in a matter of minutes. I've used chevron patterned paper strips and washi tape all from Bella Blvd.
I do wish I took a little more care writing the sentiment and had I more time I probably would have outlined the strips with black pen. Oh well, next time.
I also put a strip of washi tape through the middle on the cards inside with positive quotes from Hazek & Ruby.
The card is not perfect but I think it did its job. I hope to make more cards in the not too distant future!
