Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 294

I have not made a card for a challenge in a LONG time but needed some thank you cards for the parents of my Girl Scout troop.  They were so generous at Christmas and end of the year and chipped in and purchased me gift cards and gave me other little gifts so I wanted to send them a note of thanks.  It is nice to get unexpected gifts 😊  I used Stampin Up's Sealed with Love stamp set and their Lovee Notes Framelits Dies.  I really enjoyed using them for the first time.  I used my vagabond to cut the framelits, which I have only used once, so it was a fun time using items that just sit around and never get used!

Here is their sketch design:

Here is my submission for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #294:

More sewing fun!

I have really enjoyed sewing over these last several months.  I have sew many simple things including dresses for my girls, skirts, pillow covers for my boys and a Jeep pillow for my hubby.  One of my most favorite items though is this cute little baby pillow case dress and diaper cover for a friend.  The pillow case dress is using a pattern I found online (versus just a stand rectangle) at Pretty Prudent Pillow Case Dress, then I used a pattern a found on a website I have visited SO much since I started sewing for the diaper cover.  It is Made Everyday by Dana diaper cover .

Today I was ready to mail the little outfit so I thought I would use my Cricut to make a cute quick card.  I have not done this in a while but it turned out cute even though I did not have a light pink paper for the face :)  I sure hope she loves it and her little girl looks adorable in it.  I wish I had started sewing many years ago when my girls were small!

Here is the outfit and card:


Here are some of the other projects I have made since I last posted :)

These are the dresses I made for the Father Daughter Dance that the girls attended with their stepdad :)

For Valentine's Day I made my hubby a jeep card with an image I bought online from Apex I believe.
I made the girls skirts and we cut out images to iron on their shirts from my Cricut and I cut out Emoji's to put in as a surprise note for their lunch :)


Easter T shirt dresses (I also made St. Patrick Days ones but no pictures for some reason)

Stars Wars fabric Easter basket for a friend's daughter :) Watched a video from The Crafty Gemini for this one.  LOVE her.

Used my Cricut to cut out some iron on for a onesie and did a quick two fabric with edging baby blanket for a co-workers babyshower

Made my Mady Moo a Mike Wazowski hooded towel for her birthday.  Was definitely he favorite gift which of course melted my heart.

Also made her a ladybug dress to wear for her Fairy Garden birthday party where we made individual fairy gardens :)


I made my hubby a cute little Jeep fabric pillow because he loves Jeeps and always steals my little pillow :)

I know this is a lot and is not everything I have created over these last 6+ months but just a snippet of what I have been up to craft wise :)  I am hoping with summer and less evening activities I can make some more stuff soon.

Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting!
