Happy Spring

Hi friends! Happy Monday to you! Our new sketch challenges this month are live over at Stick It Down and I’ve popped in this morning to share my Card Team inspiration project! Handipaper is our sponsor this month so come on over and play for the chance to win a prize! The card team is showcasing projects today on the blog and this is our super awesome card sketch this month, created by me!

Stick-It-Down-Apr2020-Card-SketchI’ve absolutely enjoyed creating the first six card sketches for Stick It Down this year. I’m such a novice… prior to this, I had never created any sketches, so this has been great experience. Using this month’s sketch, I created a pretty Spring card. It’s about that time of year and hopefully you’re seeing some warmer weather where you are!


I used a Spring paper pad that I’ve had in my stash for several years and have only used a few sheets out of it. This year I am making an effort to use more stamps, papers and dies in my stash that have never seen the light of day, lol! These papers are just gorgeous and I was more than happy to use them, and paired them with a super adorable Bugaboo image and a digital sentiment from Imagine That Digis by Kris out of my digi stash.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover paper and cardstock used on the front. The inside sentiment is another one from Imagine That Digis by Kris.


And one more look… super happy with how this turned out. I love that image!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
