    Iris and butterfly Triple frame

    This has been the strangest of times for all of us but I know we will all get through this dark time. For the most part I have been cleaning out my craft-room and rearranging things. The Goodwill stores are going to be so packed with items from all of us crafters they wouldn’t know what to do.

    For this card I wanted to have a message that you could send to a loved one while we are all in quarantine from the coronvirus-19.

    Getting back to what I was saying, this card can be for a loved one that you might not be able to visit at this time but it will bring a smile to their face and know that they are loved.

    I used different shapes of purple for this card. The sentiment says,”Sending hugs and prayers and lots of love.”  This card could even be used as a sympathy card.

    Coffee or Tea Cup

    With this pandemic going on around us it’s nice to know that we as a nation are helping our fellow mankind.

    One of my nieces’ have been deployed to the epic center of New York to help out as a nurse.  I pray that she will be ok each and everyday. Several other nieces’ work in hospitals, as well as my own husband and I pray that they are safe also each day. These people; doctors, nurses, grocery store owners, police, firemen, EMT technicians are all looking out for each and everyone of us, so we must do our part and stay safe at home during this time of quarantine.

    I made one of these cards to send to my niece but was told they cannot take packages due to the virus, so here is a little sunshine to brighten your day.

    I made the background using different stamps and then cut the paper down to fit the card.  The inside sentiment says, “You are somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody.” That sentiment pretty much says what the the doctors and nurses are doing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    My next set of cards is using the same background with a sentiment inside that says, “Sending hugs and prayers and lots of love.” I made one card with a full background and another with part embossed with swirls. These cards would be great for someone who is sick and you can let them know you are thinking of them.

    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.

    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.
