CCEE1828, National Simplicity Day

July 12 has been declared National Simplicity Day in honor of Henry David Thoreau who was a devoted advocate of living a simple life  So, on this lazy day of summer, the challenge is to create a clean and simple one layer card.

I took this opportunity to make a sympathy card as they are always difficult to make when needed.  An embossing folder and some shadow stamps and this one will be ready to go....hopefully, not in the near future.

Please join us and link back to our blog here and add CCEE1828 if posting on Split Coast Stampers.

Have a fun, simple day!

CCEE1826, Relaxation

For her last challenge this week, Joanne says the theme is "RELAXATION".  

Create a card that depicts RELAXATION to you  Can be a place where you are relaxed or what you do to relax.

I absolutely love to work in my gardens....lots of flowers and I also have rhubarb, strawberries and blueberries.  Nothing like getting your hands in the dirt and watching the reward of your working and relaxing at the same time

Remember the saying:  "I'm nearer to God in my garden than anywhere else on earth"?  That's me...we talk a lot as I pull weeds and clean our the beds....God and me …. all alone in our thoughts!

Come, play along....what do you do to relax?
