This is the kind of card I hate to make...

A customer (and now friend) of mine lost her father recently and I wanted to send her something to let her know I was thinking of her. I really, really, really hate making this kind of card, and it's about the only time I wish I wasn't a cardmaker so I could just duck to the newsagents and buy something... But I do it because I care, and if it's hard for me to make a card I can only imagine how hard it is to be the person I'm making it for.
To make it easier I used Mojo Monday #100/2 from the other week as my sketch, and good old Heartfelt Thanks as my stamp set.
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss
Cardstock: Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Bella Rose DSP
Accessories: White Taffeta, Eyelet Border & Corner Rounder punches
