Black and White for Twofers

I hadn't realised it had been so long since I last blogged. I've not been feeling very creative just lately, partly because when it is hot and sunny my craft room is like an oven! Also the hard drive on my laptop failed so it had to go the PC doctor and I have been reloading stuff ever since. I;m hoping that he might be able to recover some of my files but he didn't seem too hopeful. Fortunately all my photos are on an external hard drive - phew!

A couple of weeks ago I entered the Twofers challenge for the first time, and was delighted to be picked in the top 3 with this card. This challenge has been running now for some time but  they never get very many entries despite the hard work of the girls running it. So please do think of encouraging them by joining in.

This time the theme is black and white and I am dashing in at the last minute with my entry. I had been playing with these new dies from Stampin' Up! with a view to making some wedding invitations(not in black!) but thought they would actually look good in black and white. So a sympathy card was made, I like to have one in my stash as when they they are neede they are usually needed in a hurry.

I'm also popping over to the Playground where Miss Di is back in control, as the black card was two snippets.


  1. Hello, sorry to hear of your computer problems what a relief to know that your picture library is safe. Very beautiful, elegant card thank you for the plug and for sharing with us at Twofers. XOXO Zoe

  3. A lovely, elegant sympathy card, just right for when it might be needed - and that reminds me, I always like to have one in stock too but I had to use my current one this week so I need to make another. I can see that in a different colourway the dies would be perfect for a wedding too. Thanks for joining us at Twofers

  4. Sue, this is really lovely! I do love the crispness of the black and white, softened by the pretty die cuts you used.
