The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

Everyone's favorite challenge week at The House: Anything Goes

I have not been very creative lately with nonstop the news on Coronavirus so I
made numerous variations of the above card and sent them off to people
that are confined to their homes temporarily to let them know they are in
my thoughts.  It is such a quick and easy card.  1" patterned paper squares, I 
used double sided paper so I would not have to coordinate, start with the
top left corner and then they are easy to line up visually. After gluing 
down the squares emboss with embossing folder of your choice,
one the two above I used Cuttlebugs Mosaic. Die cuts: Quick Cuts Nesting
 ovals  and unknown rectangular stitched. Saying of your choice,
I used Repeat Impression's:  8611-E, Thinking and 

Please be safe and take care of yourself.

I hope you will share your creations in our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the
 $25 Repeat Impression's  gift certificate. Each entry gets a chance,
 two if you use a Repeat Impressions stamp.   Drawing is the first
 Wednesday of every month.

Oh love your idea - and sounds easy - will have to put this on my "things to try" list - that is as soon as my MoJo returns. The embossing folder you used is perfect.
