All Occasion Card Using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp set

Hello Friends!  How are you?  I finally went outside for a short walk around my neighborhood yesterday.  It was nice to get out in the sun for a little while.  We are still on "Stay At Home" orders here in Southern CA.  It is hard; but I know it is necessary for all of us to stay safe.  

I had to drive my car today; since it had been 10 days since I drove it anywhere.  Cars don't like to start if they are not driven regularly.  I think my car was very happy to take a short trip up the freeway, just to get out of the garage.  LOL!  It was interesting to see so many people out and about; especially since we are still on "Stay At Home" orders.  We also are supposed to wear a mask if leaving our home for anything.  I even wear one to get the mail or to take out the trash.

I have been creating cards using our new CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts.  It is my favorite set in the new May/June Idea book.  I love bright bold colors and I love this Spellbinders Diamond die that I found in my stash, I had completely forgotten.   I am sending this one to my sister, Alice and her husband Kenny.  

I posted the first one of this series a few days ago.  It was a sympathy card made in black and white for my friend, Katie; whose Father-in-law passed away.  I loved making that one; but I really do like coloring them too.  Here is the 2nd one I have made in this series of Hummingbirds.
