A set of cards

Today, I have a set of cards to share that I made for my church.
I was approached recently by one of our pastors and asked if I would be interested in making
some cards for the visitation committee to bring along on their visitations.
With our recent Sunday school lesson about using our gifts and talents to serve God
and help others, I told him this was definitely something I would enjoy doing.

These cards are very CAS and are one layer (a rarity for me!)
I used two new stamp sets: Sweet & Sassy's Parisian Postcard for the flowers
and Simon Says Stamp's Blessed stamp set for the sentiment.
I used five shades of ink: sweet blush, berry sorbet, aqua mist, tropical teal and spring moss.





I'm linking these up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful set of cards, Leigh! We do something similar at our church. Pastor brings along a pouch of coffee wrapped in an "envelope" that we crafters make. It's a nice way to share a message and offer a welcome. Your cards are just lovely! Bev
