June 2021 Card Chain Revealed!!

Hello crafty friends!! I'm on top of it this month and getting my June Card Chain reveal post published on time!! Cards by 24 people went round the world - see the full chain HERE. My card traveled across the pond to the talented Hilary (Fiddling About) in the UK. It took two weeks to reach her which is a bit longer than normal but I was glad it arrived with time to spare!!

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio; American Crafts;
Anchor Paper; Basic Grey "Hey Girl" (patterned)
Dies - Pinkfresh Studio Floral Circles;
My Favorite Things Blueprints 2 & 18 (both retired);
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop
Stamps - Hero Arts All Occasion Msgs (retired)

As I often do, I used the colors, sketch, and theme of friendship:

We used this same sketch back in February 2020 - loved it then and now!! To change it up, I flipped to landscape orientation. Changing the colors also gave a totally new look! If you want to see my Feb 2020 card again, go HERE

I received this cutie from the amazing Cat (Cat Luvs Paper) in Maryland; isn't that bug adorable?? Love his circle sky too! Thanks for the card, Cat, and for the fun die cuts!! I smile every time I see that sweet bug from across the room...

If you want to play in the July challenge (make/send one card and receive one card), check it out HERE by July 6th. We'd love to have you join in!! Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!!

You had the perfect patterned paper for the colour scheme there Linda, this is just lovely! Isn't it funny how some sketches stick in your mind and you know exactly what you did with them last time around?!

I am so pleased to have this gorgeous card sitting in pride of place on my shelf, I love the way you have used the colours and the little flowery bands across the panel fit perfectly. It is so strange that we both used the same die set for our cards, a very happy co-incidence. I hadn't remembered that we had used that sketch before so thanks for your link to your previous card. I am going to go and check out what I made in Feb 2020 xx

Fabulous card Linda. The use of the colours was beautifully done.

Your DP is a perfect match to the colors Linda - so pretty against the lovely blue - love that fern die cut over the circle - a lovely design using so many of the prompts!

Jean said...

Fun! Your patterned paper is perfect for the challenge colors!

So cool that you & Hilary used the same die! I know she's enjoying the card & you got a wonderful one from Cat!
