    Yellow and Purple Crocus

         As the world is in a lock-down state right now we need to look to our fellow mankind and see if we can help in anyway to combat this dreadful virus. Check in on our elderly, call and see if they need anything.  Above all DON’T HOARD things.

        If you are having trouble sleeping, first turn your phone and computer off an hour before you go to bed.  Secondly try these five steps.  Look around the room at 5 different things, touch 4 different items, hear 3 different sounds, smell 2 different scents and last taste 1 thing.  This should help to ground you so you can start to sleep.

        For my last card for this month I thought I would start some Spring colors like yellow and purple. I made this card with both purple and yellow crocus’ for Easter. I used a basket weave embossing folder and colored the flowers using copic markers. I then added a small amount of ribbon under the framed flowers.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

        I hope these cards bring a little brightness to your day today!

    Cowboy boot

    I made this Western type of card for a masculine birthday.  I created the boots using fun foam and heated it up then stamped the design on the warm fun foam. I added some twine to look like rope and stamped the background with a wood panel.

    Snowman Fun Fold Card

    Snow is still coming down in my part of the country.  We had about 5 inches of heavy wet snow in the last two days, so instead of going outside I created this fun fold card.

    I used both Stampin Up designer series paper and also stamps for this cute snowman. The sentiment on the inside is “Let it snow,” and a few extra snowflakes to go around.

    I am so hoping this will be the last of the snow for the year.

    Friendship Therapy

    Friendship is so important these days.  It can help you conquer so many things that may be going on in your life just by just having someone to help you talk it out.

    Friendship can also help you by making you laugh at things no one else but you and your friend would understand.

    I made this card for a friend just to let them know I was thinking of them. the sentiment says, “Laughing with you is the best form of therapy.”
