Pride Month Inspired Cards

Hello!

I was inspired by an Instagram hop (or blog hop? or both?) for Pride Month that I saw recently.

Here is another card, I used a strip that was left over from the card above.

My hopes for everyone: living your most authentic life, without fear or discrimination, with supportive people around you, and LOVE.

My crafting mojo has been absent for a while. I did crank out 6 cards over the weekend – just playing with stencils I had not used before. It felt wonderful to be inky. Hopefully, the mojo will stick around. Life has been really busy – taking care of parents and trying to get in-laws approved for a better living arrangement.

Thanks for stopping by!
