My Crafty Weekend




Hello and happy Sunday.  I am here to share the results of my crafty weekend.  First up is a summer scene inspired by the sketch at MFT Wednesday Sketch #499, the photo inspiration at Fusion Summer and at Inspired by #134 and Simon Says Monday Challenge: A Day at the Beach.










Next up is this fun ferris wheel card.  My BFF Kim sent me this stamped image with the unicorn, and I added a dog and a cat from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Burbs to complete my whimsical scene.  I was inspired by the photo inspiration at Just Us Girls #546 (amusement park), Lawn Fawnatics #81: Summertime Fun (we always go to the fair in the summer), and The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #185: D is for Dog.










My next two cards are inspired by the challenges at Stay Crafty with Hero #12: Friendship and A Blog Named Hero: Embossing.  I heat embossed the sentiment on both of these cards.  I used houses and a few other small images from Welcome Neighbor as well as some branches images from last autumn's My Monthly Hero kit.










Does something on this next card look familiar to you?  Yes, I watch way too much news these days.  And, with everyone broadcasting out of their homes, I have gotten very used to seeing a talking head with a bookshelf background.  I thought that would be fun to replicate on a card. 

This card was so fun to make.  I stamped the Hero Arts Bookcase Peekaboo on some scratch paper and then cut it out with the 1950's Television Die.  I colored in the portion shaped like the TV screen and tossed the rest. 

The hardest decision I had to make for this card was my choice of News Anchor.  I picked this mini Tim Holtz dog, as he looks as befuddled as I often feel when I am watching the news.  Closed Captions took care of the sentiment, which conveys the message I want to send to all my friends who I miss.

I am also entering this card at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #185: D is for Dog.





My last two cards were inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #382 and the colors at Color Throwdown #603.  I am also entering at Seize the Birthday #195: No Toppings.





I could not decide which of my many tropical birds to use for this card, so I made another card with my runner up choice.












Thanks for Visiting
