Wisteria Weather and Reminiscing

We’ve been getting hit with so much rain today, that I thought it would be the perfect time to use my Weather Together set with the matching dies. I just love thunderstorms. I remember when the children were itty bitties and scared of the thunder. I would take them outside onto the porch, all of them trying to sit on my lap, and we’d sit there in silence together…watching the lightning and listening to thunder. Bittersweet memories…

Flourish Note

I have a friend that appears to be going through a tough time right now. I don’t know any specifics, nor do I need to. I just need to let her know she’s in my thoughts and prayers. I decided to CASE a previous card I had made (you can see it HERE). I decided against having a splatter background.  I wanted to keep it CAS (Clean and Simple).  I just love the sparkle of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and the random Rhinestones.  I’m sure my friend will appreciate it. Hugs to you!

Soft Sympathy

I debated on whether I should share today’s card with you, as it does include non-Stampin’ Up! items. I finally decided I would, though, because I do occasionally use other products.  I know you won’t be mad at me, right? This sympathy card is nicely balanced with clean lines and soft colors and makes a beautifully simple sympathy card.
