SSS United We Craft Blog Party!

Hey guys!

How are you all doing? I hope you've adjusted somewhat by now, to our "new normal." I know many of you have been crafting away and others are struggling to create. Either way is okay. I have definitely struggled lately to make cards but I really wanted to participate today.



IMPORTANT!
I'm so glad Simon Says Stamp is hosting this blog party so we can inspire each other and encourage everyone to keep crafting! It's something we all love and it's bringing crafters, families and friends together in new ways now, and that is definitely something to celebrate! If you're crafting with your kids, or doing some virtual crafting with friends, Simon would love to see those photos! Use #SSSUnitedWeCraft anywhere on social media, so we can all see the happiness that our craft is bringing to the world!

MY CARD:
Because I've struggled lately with being creative, I decided to make it a bit easier for myself and finish an image I started coloring a week ago. I love Simon's Be Kind stamp set and used just one of the beautiful leaf images for my card.


I also wanted to share an older card I found while scrolling through my Instagram feed yesterday, trying to get inspired. It's just such a happy card and the sentiment is perfect for what we're all going through. I used the adorable, Bee Happy stamp set.




Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog party. If you'd like to see a list of the close to 100 crafters participating today, head over to Simon's blog.

Hang in there everyone and keep crafting!

I love the blues you used! I understand not having inspiration, but am happy you found one online to make you happy! Thank you for sharing!

Love the simple elegance of that first card with the blues. Just gorgeous. I have a couple if lady bug sets but they just don't inspire me -- in fact, both of them were free. I get that they are the current "trend", along with bees, but I am just not there yet.

Stunning designs, adore the bee's & their positive message that's so appropriate now. The colours you used on the first card are really pretty, very delicate & spring themed. Stay as safe as you can x
