Soft and Simple: Because I Care

I love the soft, gentle feel of this card. This was my swap for this month's downline meeting and it features the new hostess sets Because I Care and Occasional Quotes. I was inspired by a layout I found in the new catalog on page 97. I changed the stamp sets and the layout just a bit, but I loved the look of all of those neutrals together.

It has been such a crazy week. Yesterday topped it all off with my son's bowling birthday party - I'll try to share some pictures with you because those kids were too funny. We had a great time, but I am pooped - I passed out on the couch at 8:30 last night! I am really looking forward to a long weekend at the lake, swimming and having fun with my family and in-laws. I hope you have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend - see you back here next week!

Stamps: Because I Care, Occasional Quotes
Paper: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Accessories: Button Latte designer button (retired), hemp twine, 1 3/4" circle punch, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool

Hi Jen, I am using your designs to "case" projects for MDS. It is so fun to be able to do that because I have all the supplies thanks to MDS.
