Sketchy Flowers - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello!  Sorry to have been so quiet this week... I've still been crafting, but I just haven't felt like blogging anything... We've all had this nasty cold, and then yesterday was the anniversary of our 2nd son's stillbirth.  I've had a very negative tearful week, and thought I just wouldn't inflict myself on you all!

Sooo... I shall try to get back to 'normal' from now on, although I must admit I'm feeling quite uninspired and negative about my cards too....

For today's card I've used one of the fab new Sketchy Flowers images from DigiStamp Boutique - there are loads of gorgeous new images this month!

Items Used
Digi stamp - Sketchy Flowers - DigiStamp Boutique
(image used twice, one of them flipped)
Heartfelt Paper set - DigiStamp Boutique
Sentiment - Mother's Day set - DigiStamp Boutique
Pale pink glitter & gems from my stash

I'm very behind with all your blogs, so I'm off for a little catch up... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Sending you a HUGE hug Lisa! You're very hard on yourself as you're bound to feel low as the anniversary comes round each year. I hope you feel better soon.

Your card is as brilliant as always! If I could only do half of what you do I'd be happy!

Aww sweetie, don't feel negative - we all have low points and understandably you have had a tough time of late, but this certainly has not reflected in your cards as they are still as brilliant and creative as ever. This one is no exception, this is a stunning card. Take care hun. Hugs and love, Claire xx

Kat said...

This is gorgeous Lisa, very elegant and pretty. Lovely image.

These images are always difficult and of course you feel a bit low this week. I know that having other children doesn't really make up for the one who wasn't meant to be.

Hope you're feeling a bit better. Lots of nasty colds around, one of my colleagues still feels awful after nearly two weeks.

Take care,

Kat xx

Sue said...

Sending you crafty hugs across the ocean! Hope next week is better...It is a hard time with remembering your dear little sona and it is OK to be a bit teary. It was a sad loss and it is OK to grieve...

Your card for your MUm is does not look like you have lost your mojo to me.

Your card is gorgeous Lisa. You 'inflict' yourself all you want, thats one of the most wonderful things about blogland: the support and love and friendship is here for each and every one of us. Big hugs, Jo x

Christine L said...

HI Lisa... Love your card... simple and perfect... it's fabulous.

So sorry to hear that you're feeling down... but can understand your reasons... and you're ALLOWED to feel that way. And the only good thing about feeling down... is that the only way is up.. (song cue there?? LOL)... so keep your eyes on the other side and you'll soon be there... Believe me, I speak from experience.

Big hugs to you and hope you're feeling slightly better today..

Hi Lisa, this is just a stunning card, I love the image and your paper choice.
No one understands the loss of a child unless you have done yourself, and having lost my son at 6 months to Leukaemia and that was 48 years ago its still hard and the anniversary is always painful. hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx

Eileen said...

Anniversaries of tragic events are so terrible to live through, so my thoughts are with you.
Your card today may be Cas but you really do have a flair for them Lisa. Great image and perfect for mother's day

Aww thinking of you at this sad time sweetie. Hope you all feel better soon too. This is gorgeous, love that image xx

rosie said...

I am sure that if we were all able to - we would come round and give you the biggest of hugs!!
don't be so hard on yourself Lisa. anniversaries are always hard. been there myself and you do tend to feel a bit low and down - and also with you being under the weather too - that isn't going to make this time any easier.

hugs to you. always.

love the card. fab colours x
