Fast Flower Fun

I am really excited about this card because I really feel like it gets back to my roots of SIMPLE and STRESSFREE stamping!  It actually hardly has any stamping at all.  Maybe that is why I like it so much because I didn't have a big mess to clean up after I was done! Oh, and it has flowers, which I have really been neglecting here lately since it is now fall and Christmas is just around the corner.  I used the challenge over at The Friday Mashup! for this one. The challenge is to make a project using dry embossing and the colors Basic Black, Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight.  I decided to make a sympathy card. 
I thought the gray and black were good for a sympathy card and then the daffodil kind of brightened it up a bit.  The funny thing is, when Brett saw it he was like "Aww, you're here for me!"  I laughed and said it was a sympathy card and he didn't need my sympathy. :)  So then he asks who I'm sending it to...ummm, I'm supposed to give my cards away?  Oops!  I am really bad at that!  I make them and throw them in a big basket!  Occasionally I will have a customer buy some, but most of them just sit there!  I need to get into the habit of mailing out a few every day.  You never know; maybe it could help my business grow!
