Once in a while, I do finally manage to get away and do a little stamping, but it usually is only when I have a card that is due, such as birthdays or sympathy.  I did agree to do the Technique Junkies Just One swap, but didn't get my card off until the 5th, so didn't even try to join for July.  My sister's birthday was in June, too, so.........., and had a sympathy card to do for tomorrow.

This was for my sister and is the paper piecing technique.  The printed paper is from the Old World paper pack, the pot is an Inkadinkado stamp and the flowers are Stampin' Up, as is the other paper.

One of the techniques from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter is called "Faux Tiles".  It is not only an easy technique, but a very stunning one.  It also works to make a card look like a Delft tile.
This one is done in pretty in pink and chocolate chip inks from Stampin' Up, the cherry blossom and sentiment stamps are also from Stampin' Up.  The ribbon is from Michael's.
Lastly, a very simple sympathy card for the husband of a friend of mine.  He was a rancher, farmer, lover of animals and simply did not wake up last Friday.  They are holding a "cowboy" funeral for him tomorrow - his son and grandsons run the local sale barn, so that's where the funeral will be, and his hearse will be his horse trailer.  I don't know what church they attended, but do know he was a good Christian man and will be greatly missed.
Hope your summer is going well for you!!
