Freshly Made Sketches and CASE this Sketch Challenge Cards

Hi everyone!! I hope you are all hanging in there. I am sure you are all like me and just wishing this would all go away.

I have been spending my time this week trying to prepare to help my students that I support at school via online. This is a HUGE learning curve for me. Usually I reenforce material that has already been taught but this means actually teaching it. Not sure I am liking this transition as didn't get my degree as a teacher for a reason. This also means learning new technology, which I am excited about.

Another thing I have been doing is attempting to clean up my craft room. My computer where I will be doing my lessons is in my room and I couldn't have the kids see my MESS. I did a Zoom happy hour with some friends last night and one of my friends actually commented on the chaos. It is slowly and surely getting better but I have so much stuff that I am NOT willingly giving up.

I was able to get some challenges done this week in between all my learning and cleaning. My first card I created for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #428.

I used Reverse Confetti's Butterfly Wreath stamp set that I colored in with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Sympathy.

The background paper is from 49 Market Irrevocable Collection.

This is the sketch that inspired this card.

For the next two cards, I used the CASE this Sketch Challenge #365.

I LOVED this sketch because I can use PATTERN PAPER SCRAPS!!! Do you know how much paper I have? And my scraps are overflowing!!! I did use some paper from some new 6" by 6" paper pads that I have been hoarding.

The striped and yellow dot paper are from My Mind's Eye "Tutti Fruitti" collection. The flower is from Pink Fresh Studio "Dainty Blossoms" die.

The "happy" die cut is "Big Lingo Type" from Birch Press Design. I have had it in my stash FOREVER and have never used it. The stamped part of the sentiment was from Hero Arts "Happy" stamp set.

For my second card, I used the scraps from the first card except for the middle portion.

I actually like this card better than the first. The middle panel is from Pink Fresh Studio's "Just a Little Lovely" 6" by 6".

I used the same products for the flowers, the "happy" and the sentiment.

These were so fun to make!!! 

Well, that is all for today. I hope you all have a great day!!!
