Plaid Baby Welcome

I've got two cards today for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I haven't made any baby cards in ages and this sketch also looked like a good opportunity to use some more patterned paper.  I've combined a Simon Says Stamp die cut sentiment with a Hero Arts teddy bear and some MFT (pink) and Lawn Fawn (blue) patterned papers.

Our lockdown has been extended for two more weeks but it looks like a few retail stores (hardware, garden supplies & pet supplies) will be able to open for limited hours starting next week.  Hooray!  It's been so frustrating to be home knowing there's a million projects we could be working on if we just had the supplies.  Fingers crossed we'll be able to get a few things accomplished in the next couple of weeks.  

Hope you're all staying safe and well!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Pretty in Pink, Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate, Basic Black) Stampin; Up
Patterned Paper:  (Pink from County Fair Plaid 6x6) My Favourite Things, (Blue from Perfectly Plaid 6x6) Lawn Fawn
Stamps:  (Bear from New Baby) Hero Arts, (Sentiment from Just Hatched) Mama Elephant
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Welcome) Simon Says Stamp
Other:  (Nuvo White Crystal Drops) Tonic

Super sweet card!!
Glad to hear all is well...hopefully you'll be able to get some projects done! ;) All those stores have been open here (as well as others), so we've been doing a lot of 'remodeling'. ;)

These are both adorable! I love this sweet bear. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

These are very cute Jen and a great way to use those papers. Love the little 'press me' heart on the bear's tummy! Yes, I was thinking that those kind of stores could open, with stringent social distancing rules it would be fine surely, and people could at least get on with jobs that need doing. Eva's ears have been duly scratched - give Chica a pat on the shoulder from me! Vicky x

I like that you almost always make at least two versions of birthday cards you create. This one is very cute!
