Feeling like I'm in a crafting desert today!
Now this IS the second post of today so please feel free to scroll down in order to catch the other one! My thoughts about the crafting desert have come about after all the busy-ness of the last two days . . . so I decided to set myself a little project, nothing too taxing but . .
I don't know about you good people but I DO struggle with certain sorts of cards, masculine cards and sympathy cards. Usually, when you have to make a sympathy card for someone you know you are far too personally involved to want to make a card so I thought I would try and find a simple card which could do service for just such an occasion. I THOUGHT I might be about to enter a cutesie phase as I've gone CUTE over the last few days too and how inappropriate would that be? Well, I've also discovered the very liberating joys of white space on cards and thought this might be more appropriate than gamboling cartoon animals!! Am I right? Truly, nothing would please me more than NEVER ever having to send this card but two things in this world appear certain: death and taxes.

Please feel free to leave me a comment on my card or the World in general - I love to read your comments, it's like having post!! Even if you don't leave me a comment then I hope you will be enjoying your Triffik Tuesday!
