Sending Socially Distant Hugs

One of the things I miss the most right now is hugging.  
There's nothing like a good hug between friends.  
Oh well... here's a hug for all my friends and anyone else who needs one.

It's crooked! I know!

So, I'm editing this picture and trying to get it straight.  Then I think maybe I put the sentiment piece on lopsided.  Nope.  Finally I realized it is stamped crooked.  I didn't even notice that until now.  Sure glad I decided to snap a picture and share the card with you.  I'll be restamping it before I send it off.

Easter Bunny by Mo's Digital Pencil

It's been a while since I posted on my blog.  My apologies.  I was very busy making Easter and Mother's Day cards.  Now, I have some time to share a few of my favorites with you.

Here's an Easter card using a darling digi called Easter Bunny 2 from Mo's Digital pencil. 
I used markers and pencils to color this and a Lawn Fawn stamp for the sentiment. 

I've decided to create my own challenge today.  
And I challenge you to do the same.  
I am going to leave at least one comment at each challenge I enter for someone else who has entered.  I am hoping that leaving a comment on someone else's blog right now, just might make their day.  And if I find a card that really strikes my fancy, perhaps I'll come back and share it with you!   Care to join my challenge?  
Hugs to all!

Joyful Stars Close to My Heart March 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to the March 2020

Close to My Heart Joyful Stars Blog Hop.
Have some fun hopping between the blogs of this group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, where we share creative projects.

For my card this month, I've used the zip strips from the edges of 2 sheets of patterned paper in the new Seas the Day Paper Packet X7255B and the new Happy Easter Bunny Stamp Set A1246.  Many thanks to CTMH consultant Bobbi Forsythe for supplying me with these items from the new Close to Mt Heart Catalog.

Now, since this is a blog hop,

you might have arrived here from  Nancy Brown's blog.
Your next stop is Joyce Houck's blog.
The hop is circular.
If you are just starting here,
simply continue hopping until you find your way back,

Double Trouble Challenge #51

Today I made a relatively simple card for the new 

First I die cut the square out of the center of the plaid paper using a die from MFT.  I cut a piece for behind the square and embossed it.  Using CTMH thin cuts stitched hearts, I cut 8 hearts, folding 4 of them in half, and arranged them on the squared, adding the stem which is actually a die cut tree trunk, but it works.   To finish that section of the card I punched a circle from a tiny scrap of CTMH holographic paper.  Finally, I heat embossed the Lawn Fawn sentiment in gold. 

I am also entering these fun challenges: 
Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Put Your Green On
Cuttlebug Tuesday Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (Embossing folder, Die Cut, Circle)
Aud Sentiments Challenge #245 - AG with a Sentiment
