Just playing around....

Good evening.  Thank you for stopping by.  I am actually posting something other than Tuesday Morning Sketches - I haven't done that for a long time.  It's almost like I have forgotten how to stamp for the fun of it.  There's always a purpose.  LOL.... and it's not any different this time, too.

Ellen Hutson threw down a challenge to make cards to send to a local nursing home to bring a bit of cheer and joy to some elderly folks who cannot receive visitors right now and who may not use electronic devices to stay in touch with friends and family.  I am all about reaching out to these people.

This first card features dies from Spellbinders.  The "sending" is from the January of February small die KOM and the butterfly is from another small die KOM from sometime last year.  I die cut the "hugs" from letter dies from Sizzix that I picked up at Hobby Lobby a while ago.  The paper I used is from a 12x12 stack from Michaels and the card base is from JoAnn's Park Lane that I got when they first started introducing that brand.  the envelope that is behind the card is made from the same paper stack and my 123 punch board.  Really simple card and I think it turned out really nice.

This second card features a turn about stamp from Concord & 9th.  I actually played along with a couple of challenges.  Just Us Girls color challenge (blue, green and yellow) and the sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.

Thank you for stopping by!

It's good to know there are silver linings to these horrible times Melissa - more time in the craft room doing things just for fun, thinking of others and connecting with them :) Both your cards are lovely but the blue, yellow and green one is singing to me! Vicky x
