Black and Vanilla

Hi there everyone . The weekend is near. And , what have we scheduled? Well lucky us,  every day is a  weekend . So it's out for coffee,  a bit of shopping ,home for lunch , then a lick and a promise of housework
and into my craft room. AWESOME!  Hope that your weekend is a happy one .
Good luck with your stall tomorrow , Michelle .    5 days to go...YIPPEE.
Todays card is for a friend who is feeling a bit low because  in a few days time it will be the 1st anniversary of her Husband's passing . Now it is visually  sombre because I know she will be in a pensive mood . you will see what I mean ..
Card base and topnote is of Very Vanilla with Basic Black as a mat. The sentiment and flowers are from set Upsy Daisy inked in Basic Black. The little highlight is the red gingham ribbon next to the black gingham ribbon . And as a softener I added some pearls in the corners
I did not think that a bright sunny flowery card was the go at this time . But by the same token , I don't think that this card is morbid either.
 Hope that I was right!
Catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne

This card is perfect. My younger sister passed three years ago and the anniversary is so HARD. It really does help though when I get cards on that day. It is such a special thing you are doing for your friend and will really help her get through the day.
