My Crafty Stay-at-Home

Hello and happy Sunday.  Another week of staying home, and I found some time and creativity and made a few cards.

First up is a card that will be popped into the mail tomorrow for a Nurse friend of mine, to cheer her on as she continues her heroic work at the hospital.  I used a free digital download from MFT, and was inspired by the sketch at MFT Sketch Challenge #483 and the colors at MFT Color Challenge #138.


Next up is a card inspired by the challenge at Ink to Paper Project Reach Out:  Just a Little Thank You.  I pulled out one of my favorite PTI sets, Quilled Elegance for this card.  My colors and design were inspired by the dual challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches #364.

This next card is inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #429, using the colors from Just Add Ink #499.  I am also playing along at Stay Crafty With Hero #3: Home Inspiration.  This card is inspired by the freezer in my garage, which is always well stocked with ice cream.  These pretty colors say spring to me, so I am also linking up at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and Inkspirational Challenge #210: Spring.

 Last up is my very first Holiday card for 2020.  I am entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #383: Holiday, Addicted to CAS #181: Texture (see the embossing paste snow behind the deer), and The Paper Players #485: A Day at The Zoo.

Thanks for Visiting
