With love

Hello everyone!

Undoubtedly this hasn’t been a good week given the fact that the news was packed with sad events about terrorist attacks and hostile takeovers and all the like where loads of people lost their lives. However that can have a positive effect as well if it makes us realise how short life can be and how important it is to treat our loved ones – and not only- right!Inspired by that I created the following journal page. Hope you like it!

(I kept it simple and left some free space on purpose, so I can actually fill in some personal writing later ๐Ÿ™‚ )

With love

WITH SYMPATHY

Hello everyone! Hope you have a good day!

I know people normally create happy cards and joyful projects to enter competitions etc…but sometimes we get inspired by personal reasons. I got inspired by my dad who left this world a few months ago but will never leave my heart. This card is not about him though, it is for all those who have lost a loved one. My sympathy…stay strong and don’t forget those we love always live in our heart!

This is my little easel card!
