SC&S Blessings

Hi, stamping friends!  Simply Clean & Simple is having their first anniversary, and since I needed a quick card for an older couple who just joined our church, I thought CAS would fit the bill!  I know they used to own a sailboat so the little image from Choose Happy was perfect:

My card is 4 1/4" square; I used the Perennial Postage dies to cut a square of Summer Splash DSP.  (I actually used a rectangle postage die, but ran it through twice to get the smaller shape.) I colored in the sailboat with an aquapainter and Summer Splash and Poppy Parade inks:

I added a Poppy Parade mat, and a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs was heat embossed on a Poppy Parade banner.  I added a couple resin stars at the bottom to balance it out.  A Close to My Heart sentiment went on the inside:

When this couple first visited our rural church, the lady and I both swore we knew each other from somewhere....we live in a small community and she's a bit older than I am, so our options were limited about where we might have crossed paths.  But it came to me a couple of weeks later that we both were in a women's Bible study just before Covid!   Unfortunately we didn't get to spend too much time together until the study shut down, but we have enjoyed renewing our friendship at church!  

Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!
