Inspired he(ART)work ~ New blog series card #1!

Hi friends! 

 Today's card is inspired by my dreams come true ~

my 4 children :)

During this summer's pandemic, I did a massive reorganizing

and found the bins of my children's school days artwork!

As I sorted through bins and bins, 

the idea came to me ~ use their art as card inspiration!

So once a month,

I'll share a new card creation called:

 Inspired he(ART)work!

I'll be showcasing this monthly on my blog series

and also adding it my YouTube channel 

(I'd LOVE for you to subscribe as I'm trying to grow my channel!)

The first painting I picked was created by my son ~

he was just about 4 or 5 years old because I recognize it 

from his christian preschool and they were HUGE into art!

Here's my first card:

Inspired by:  my son's artwork here:

Here's a final look!

I've spotted the next one under this one and

absolutely squealed!  

I can't wait to create a card with that one :)

This was so much fun 

and a great inspiration to find inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
