Hello Card Using CTMH Celebrate Today Paper with Dragonfly stamp and thin cut

Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I think I am finally starting to get better after being sick for over a week with a bad cold, cough, etc.  I am still weak; but better than I was.  This year seems to have a lot worse cases of what used to be an ordinary cold or flu.  I have heard other stories of people being sicker than they have been before.  It is scary when it happens to you.

I happened to see someone posting on my blog news feed for Mojo Monday sketches.  I loved doing those sketches; and have really missed them since they shut down.  I decided to try and create a card using this weeks sketch; which I really love.  

I started working on a set of 6 cards for a friend of mine, who loves Dragonflies.  I managed to get 4 of them done before I got sick; and then nothing.  Once I saw the Mojo Monday sketch, I was able to create two cards with the sketch.
