About two weeks ago, I was peeking at the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps release for July, and I was so impressed with the floral silhouettes and sentiments in their new Celebrate Today set. I knew it would be perfect to pair with yesterday’s Dare to Get Dirty challenge hosted by Miss Kittie! I hope you can find some time to play with us! Lots of great inspirational challenges and prizes this week!

I have needed a few sympathy cards recently, so clean and simple (read: easy to put together) cards have helped me get things finished up and mailed. I keep reaching for my MFT Blueprints Die-namics to get that done. I really don’t have to think when I use those dies, just cut and layer. I like that.

My background was created using the Belleek Inspired technique. I found it so easy with a brayer and ink. I love the tone-on-tone look for classic simplicity.

I came home from CHA on Saturday afternoon to a broken hot water heater. Yay me! So, that means showers at the YMCA for a few days, a few loads of laundry that need to wait and little cooking. Did I mention my car is in the shop today? Or that it’s raining? I’m so glad it’s summer. Today, I think I’ll just hang out and make pretty things with paper!

I’ll be back tomorrow with another Dare to Get Dirty project. I’m getting a ton of card making done, and that always feels like a great accomplishment…whether my laundry is caught up or not!

Have a beautiful Monday!

  1. Beautiful card Lori. It is very appropriate for a sympathy card. So sorry to hear about the mechanical issues. We replaced our hot water heater about 2 weeks ago. Luckily, it started to leak slowly so we didn’t have to miss out on any of our water needs. Leaked one day, new heater the next. Don’t you just love those credit cards? Hope your week gets better.

  2. Beautiful card Lori – that stamp set is on my wish list! 😀 Love the background; thanks for the link to the technique!
