Happy Wednesday to you all! I hope this finds you healthy, safe and secure in your homes. Like many places, Virginia now has a stay at home order so we are hunkered down. I am still considered essential but with the flying pulled down for April, I’m on a reserve (on call) status. My boys are waiting for the real plan to start distance learning so we are trying to do what we can to stay engaged. My husband is also essential so works from his office every other day and teleworks on the others. All in all, we seem to be adapting as well as can be expected. The cats are confused and, no surprise, are the big winners. With all this at home time, I keep thinking that I’ll do so much crafting but somehow the mojo has just flown away. I’m glad for Freshly Made Sketches to keep me motivated! This sketch by the lovely Judy allowed me to follow my previous formula of finding a favorite stamp from a favorite company and just keeping it simple.
The Posie Fill-In stamp set from Concord and 9th remains a favorite of mine, especially on sketches with circles. I stamped using Altenew inks in Aqualicious, Lime and Jet Black. I found this piece of patterned paper in the stash and it seemed just right behind the flowers. The sentiment from the same set is bold and fabulous. I’m trying hard to mail more cards to friends. It makes me feel better and I hope it brightens their days too.
I just bet the cards from the design team will inspire you and I hope the sketch gives a boost to your creativity. I am grateful for you all. Please stay safe! See you soon.
I love these bright, bold flowers! A perfect card to provide cheer.
WOW Jenn, some of my favorite colors and I love the template y’ll have this week! I guess you are getting more crafting time since flights are down, but I’m also sure the boys are keeping you busy also with most schools closed. I miss flying and still hope to be on one of your flights one day!
I love the bright blue with the touch of green! Very pretty card! These days are definitely surreal!
I love that pop of turquoise with the black and white!! Those flowers are absolutely perfect with the sketch!
Jen, my creative license has expired. Even my sense of humor has flown the coop! But your bright posies do such a beautiful job of cheering me up – such a pretty card!
This card is so pretty Jen! I just love those bright cheery flowers and the chevron paper! Just stunning!
Yes to the bold flowers and zig zag black and white stripes! I love this!
