Keeping busy

Hi!
I hope all of you are staying safe.
I have no problem keeping safe and just staying home.
However it is a bit of a challenge when you live alone,
I am now talking to myself when I walk past a mirror. lol
 
Anyway, my creative mojo seems to be absent right now,
so I've been looking through my pinterest boards at cards that I've saved.

I liked a card by Christine ( you can see her post HERE

I liked this card so much that I copied it exactly.... 4 times!
 

Thanks for stopping by.
'til next time,

Using leftovers

Hi!
For Challenge #542 at Little Red Wagon, Imke challenges us to use our leftovers.

I have a drawer full of pieces and parts ...The pink paper was the only thing I had to cut for this card.
Last summer I spent a day with my friend Darlene in her awesome craft room.
She must have a kizillion dies and I had a field day just die cutting away!
Unfortunately... I didn't write the name or source of the things I cut.
These sweet flowers were cut from white cardstock.
They are joined as one unit across the bottom so I didn't have to arrange them,
I just added another leftover scrap of green check paper to cover the bottom and
 then just added a little color to the flowers with copic markers.

I hope you have as much fun looking through your leftovers as I did!

Thanks for stopping by.
'til next time,
Doni
