Sentiments for Today

For my post today over at Elizabeth Craft Designs, I was inspired by the sentiments. Given the time that we are in with all of this COVID19, I thought these three sentiments fit the times very well!

I plan to send these cards out to friends who are having a bit of a hard time with the quarantine and/or who I think just should have some cheer in their mailboxes!

Craftily yours, Karen

Here's the sketch:

I took some creative license....but that's what it's all about, right?  :)  Anyway, thanks for stopping by!  Hope you join in the challenge!

Sweeter than Honey

Today, I'm having fun with the Dare 2B Artzy Buzzy Bees Set!  Here's what I created:

Isn't he just the cutest bee?  I used Distress Oxide inks for the center and splattered a bit around the edges. The frame is cut with the Dare 2B Artzy Fancy Rectangle Framelit Dies. You can find all the other details over on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Meeting Long-Time Friend

Back in January, before all of this COVID19 stuff, I was able to sneak away to Washington DC for a trip to visit my BFF. While there, I got to meet up with a lovely lady named Anne who I "met" only online for many years through an old craft site called Crop Chocolate.  I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Art Journal line to create this fun page.

All of the details for how I made this page can be found today on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  Thank you for stopping by!

Easter Bunny

Today, over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, we are celebrating Easter - a smidge early :)  It's an all-design-team group post, and it's all about Easter!  Here's what I created:

Gosh, I love that adorable Bunny!  His feeties, ears, tummy and nose are colored with an R20 Copic that I then "washed" a bit with blender pen.  All of the supplies from Elizabeth Craft Designs are in the link-up below.  The beautiful pattern paper is from the DCWV Fairytale Floral Collection.  On the doily, before I cut it, I colored the ECD Soft Finish Cardstock with some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide from Tim Holtz.

Thank you for stopping by!

Pastels Challenge

There's a new challenge over at Dare 2B Artzy!  It's the pastels challenge.  Here's my inspiration:

I may have taken a bit of creative license on the pastels?  The green is much greenier than I'd hoped.  LOL  The products I used from Dare 2B Artzy are the Take Time Stamp Set and the Rectangle Fancy Framelit Die, I nested the framelit dies to create those frames which are colored with Mowed Lawn and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides.

I hope during this crazy time that you are taking time to enjoy the simple things.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I also hope you join in on the challenge!

Craftily yours,  Karen

Basilica Visit

Today's post is for Crazy4Challenges. The challenge today is to be inspired by the Autism logo. I used the logo to become inspired by the colors - red, yellow, green and blue and created this fun scrapbook planner page.

The products I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are below.  The patterned paper is from Paper House, Sun Drenched Collection. I hope you join in our challenge this week!
