At our age swimming is dangerous.
Lifeguards don't try as hard.

Oh, and I found the perfect hankies to put in my matching tissue coozie.
Isn't that hilarious?
My chunky dunker is such a fashionable chick, don't you think, with that flower on her cap? Does anyone remember these?
This week's theme at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog is CAS (Clean and Simple) cards (RCC3). Well, dears, there's nothing clean or simple about me.
I love CAS cards, but, seriously, my last card (Ladybug Hugs) had at least 12 layers! So, I submit to you, that, while this is not a single-layer, embellishment-free, pure clean-and-simple card; with half my usual layers, it's clean-and-simple for me. And, if I can pull this off, all of you certainly can.
I followed Holly Ramer's instructions at her very fun site, Stitch Craft to make the tissue coozie. Here's the rest of my recipe:
- Stamps – Eat Cake Graphics 1129-J Doris is Ready for Water and 8173-F Chunky Dunk; My Favorite Things Typewriter Alpha sets
- Paper – Neenah; Stampin' Up! designer paper and cardstock (Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue)
- Color Mediums – Copic Markers, Signo White Gel Pen, Memento Ink, Stampin' Up! Classic Ink (Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue)
- Fibers – Stampin' Up! gingham ribbon and May Arts
- Tools– Nestabilities, EK Success 5/8" circle punch, My Favorite Things Fishtail Banner and medium scallop Die-namics, Cuttlebug embossing folder
- Embellishments – Making Memories metal flowers, Stampin' Up! eyelets
- Challenges – My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch (MFTWSC19), Splitcoast Stampers CAS118 (Banners)
Okay . . . off to make sure all the chunky dunkers are well represented. Wheee! Cannon Ball!
