When I sat down at my craft table on Sunday afternoon to stamp my July cards, all I knew was that I wanted to use these two items:
What I didn't know was that I would get carried away with all the possibilities of this gorgeous paper! As soon as I saw this paper in the new catalog, I knew that I would be ordering it. Blue is my all-time favorite color. Most of my clothes are blue, my house is decorated in blue, and of course, I often use blue on my cards & scrapbook pages.
What I like about blue is that it has such a clean and calm look about it. It is so classic. It can be used for every season and holiday. And it looks good with every other color!
This teacup and saucer is part of a set that I brought back from England when we lived there several years ago. It was my inspiration in using a bit of yellow in this card.
This mug is also from England. It features the church in the small village where we lived. I love the simplicity of the blue image on a white background.
These cards have a more casual look to them and were very quick to make.
I made this card for my Aunt Dot, who lives in a nursing home. Whenever I send her a card, I try to use polka-dot paper . . . to go with her name and with the fun personality that I will always associate with her!
I am sending this card to a lady from our church who has been experiencing severe back pain recently and hasn't been able to be at church.
