Control Freaks Blog Tour: Fun & Fancy Free

Whether you are coming from Amy Koender's blog or just joining us -- welcome to the July 2016 Control Freaks Blog Tour! Our theme this month is "Fun & Fancy Free". In other words, we don't have a theme! haha This month, we are all sharing a variety of projects and while there may not be a theme to pull them all together, I have no doubt that you will love them all!

I had originally planned to share some projects that are a little more "fun", but I didn't get photos taken in time. Instead, I have some clean and simple sympathy cards for you. Unfortunately, I have needed quite a few sympathy cards in the last month.

This first card was inspired by a card my mom made. She used the flourish die cut, but I substituted a similar stamp instead. I love the classic navy and white color combination. The Floral Boutique Designer Paper is a great background for this card.

I also made this card last week while I was at Mom's house. She created a sympathy card with the Sceneic Sayings Designer Paper stack, so I chose this pattern for another clean and simple card. The linen thread adds some nautical texture to this beach-inspired card.
