Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #256 Celebrations

Kim is hosting today's challenge and the theme is Celebrations
ATG. As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the 'Celebrations' theme.

I choose to celebrate a best friend who I have known since grade 9, oh so many years ago. I have made this card while in COVID-19 seclusion and sent it to her as a small attempt to bring some cheer during this Shut Down of 2020, a just because  card.

I used a die-cut for the black swirls and the frame of the burlap sentiment which came from an old paper pack. The tag came from my stash, origin unknown. The stamped words on the tag are from Stampin Ups 'Amazing You' and ' Express Yourself' stamp sets.

Have a great shut-in- day!

  1. I've sent out loads of cards this year, just because, I just felt that people need something to put a smile on their face.
    I'm sure that your friend will love her card.
    Stay safe and hugs

    1. oh good idea, I think I will do the same thing. I have lots of cards and if it helps bring a smile it is well with it!

  2. Great idea. I think this is such s lovvely card. Loving that swirly embellie to the left!

  3. That is such a wonderful card and I agree that people need an extra pick me up during this rough, unusual time. We are lucky in that we have our crafts to keep us busy and then can help others. Most of us could barter off craft supplies for toilet paper or food, lol.

  4. I love the burlap you used on this. So pretty! It will certainly cheer anyone up during these hard times right now.Thanks for sharing it with us at The Crafter's Cafe. Stay safe!!
