Goodby to a Special Friend with Hopeful Thoughts Using Stampin' Up! Products UK

Saying goodbye when you lose a special friend or family member (they are the same to me as friends are my chosen family) is always difficult. 
How do you find the right words to say, when you are feeling that loss too.

What do I do, I make a card that captures the essence of the person I am saying goodbye to.
Those of you that follow my blog, will also have seen the card I made for my friend who was losing his 'second mother', and He happens to be a gardener. 
He spent many hours at my friends, and the garden was a passion they both enjoyed.
So I decided to use the HOPEFUL THOUGHTS STAMP SET
Since my fiend loved the colours that come with the changing seasons, I tried to embody that feeling in this card
I used second generation stamping technique (this is the amount of times you stamp the image before re-inking the stamp). I also inverted the stamp image for the bottom section of the card
The final touch, was some d Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Anne loved some subtle bling 

Just start following the board, and so long as I can see you have an interest in papercraft, I will send you an invitation to start posting your own card & papercraft creations
