All Occasion Card Using Conie Fong Dandelion Wishes

Hello Friends! How is everyone?  I know this is a tough time for everyone.  I think there are still states/countries that are not under lock down; but I think most of them are.  This is a really bad situation; but we all need to do everything we can to help keep this disease from spreading and from killing more people.  

I personally think any lives lost means we have not done what needs to be done to keep everyone safe; especially our front line workers.  To consider 100,000 deaths as great results, makes me very sad and confused.  Every life means something to someone.  Saying it is ok to lose our elderly population is disgusting to me.  These are the people with great stories and they have every right to live, as much as the younger people do.

I know it is hard for everyone.  I know it is worse for some people who are without an income.  I hope the government gets those checks deposited really soon.  My daughter and her family are one of those without a income.  She is a hairdresser and they are on shut down.  Some of my family is on the front lines, working in jobs that are considered necessary.  

I worry about them without protection; because people are not staying at home.  Instead, they are remodeling their homes, out shopping, etc.  There are many who are not taking this serious; and making jokes about it.  I don't know what it's going to take for people to take this seriously, here in the US.   

My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones during this terrible pandemic.  I see the news and read such sad stories; but there are also uplifting stories where people have survived.  It is a very scary situation and I hope it is over in the next few months.  

I have been able to do a little bit of crafting.  Here is a card using Conie Fong "Dandelion Wishes".  I love this sweet image.  I love creating clean and simple cards; but rarely do it.
