With Sympathy


Welcome to the first Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop for March.  The theme this time is sympathy or encourage…cards that it seems I am needing more and more lately.

Life is a little complicated right now as my husband and I have put a contract on a new home that will allow us to downsize.  A lot of the downsizing will be my craft space – EEK!  If all goes well, we will be moving sometime in April.  So I have until then to get my stuff down to about a third of what I have now.  Let me tell you…NOT easy!

So…with all this going on besides working and STILL fighting bronchitis, I needed to go for something super easy.  With thinlets and designer paper, making a nice but simple card is just a snap!


Here’s the details…

  • Blushing Bride – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Falling in Love dsp – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, layer onto Very Vanilla 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – cut out the large flourish, add to card front
  • Sahara Sand – 1/4 x 3 5/8, add to card front
  • Blushing Bride – 1 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Tip Top Taupe, cu into a banner, ad to card front

So very simple.  And if you are look for some great ideas for the Occasions Mini and SAB it’s simple to subscribe for the Create with Connie and Mary March Mini Session.
