Cards for Friends

I've just realized that I haven't posted anything here
for a number of days now
over these past few days I have been creating some cards -
some for happy occasions and some for sad occasions too.
This first one I created for a friend, Glenda, whose
Mother-in -Law passed away at 103 within
days of Glenda's Birthday.
I thought that was too sad but she told me also
that her own mother died on her Birthday
a few years before this.


 This was a pretty hard call
but she loved her card when I handed it to her.
It is a nice feeling to see someone's sadness lift
even for a just a short time!

 This one was very difficult for me to create as a very dear, to me,
bloggey friend lost their husband recently and
I just wanted to rush to her to comfort her but living
on the opposite side of the world
made that just impossible
to do
falling short of handing her the biggest bunch of roses
I could gather from my garden I
created this Rose lover's card

in the hope of bringing a little special love to her broken heart!

But on the upside of all of this
I was asked to create a special Birthday card for another
bloggey friend, Nancy, for her daughter-in-law, Candy.


 Nancy sent me a few baby images


as well as one of her now
and the words "You must have been a beautiful baby" -
"Because Casey look at you now!".

 and this last card was for another friend of mine, Dottie,
whose darling mother is 93 years of age
and she wanted to send this to
New Zealand
Mother's Day coming up in May.

 This is Dottie's mother in the 1930's

 looking all dressed up in her fur coat
on her way down the street

 and as she has always loved flowers
there were several placed around her lovely image.
In between all of these card creations
there has been some other projects
in the pipeline
this is just a sneak peek at a new custom order lace book
in the making!

It really is such a beautiful vintage image of this
woman with roses draping from her hair
that it is a very pleasurable piece
of artwork for me to be engaged with at the moment.
I do hope that you are finding lots of joy and inspiration
in your life and/or in the projects you may be
involved with at the moment!
I just would like also to say "Thank you"
to everyone inc. new followers to my blog also
for the kindest comments left on my 
previous post about
creating a journal for a special friend.
I do hope that you all had a wonderful Easter break
and celebration with friends and/or family!
