Pretty flowers

Today's card is a simple one using one of the lovely Flower Doodles images from Digistamp Boutique.  I've coloured it with promarkers, and added some little 'spots' to the vase with a black fineliner.  The papers are the new Dovecraft 'back to basics - blue' - love these, I bought the pink pack too (because I really needed more papers... lol!).  Cardstock is from Papermill Direct, ricrac ribbon and flower button from stash, Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I must apologise for being so useless at commenting at the moment... it's coming up to the 4th 'birthday' of Harvey, who was stillborn (at 41wks of pregnancy) and I'm struggling a bit to be honest.  I always find the day itself hard, but this year I'm a bit low already.  It feels like everyone else has forgotten this year - so many members of my family have reminded me about my uncle's birthday, which is on Saturday, the same date as we lost Harvey... I'm hardly going to forget that date!  Anyway, this time next week I'm sure I'll have picked myself up again, and hopefully my mojo will return with my good mood.

Wow Lisa I'm absolutely loving your card. Such fresh colours and a fab digi too :o))

Hon I'm sending the biggest of hugs your way ((( ))) I know exactely how you feel and felt the same on Harry's birthday just after Christmas. Some our family went on holiday and friends were just talking about new years eve doo's (his birthday is the 30th December) and I too felt like they had all forgotten. In the end hubby and I just spent a really quiet day on our own and sung happy birthday to him with candles in our jammy dodger's! I think people think that you want them to not mention it because you need to move on but actually that's the last thing you want as there aren't very many memories to remember anyway so the last you want is to not share them! Take care of you, your hubby and your beautiful boys - your ever so precious angel will always be with you honey xxx
Lots of love
