All Occasion Card Using CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello Friends! I have been having fun creating cards and I hope you are having time to create or do something that you enjoy.  

Please stay safe and wear a mask if you can.  It could help to save you or someone else's life.  Please ignore the crazy rumors and lies that are being told that the masks are going to make you sick.  If that was true, do you think the medical profession would be wearing them every day at work; all over the world; prior to this outbreak?  Not if it made them sicker.  And do social distancing for the sake of others, if not for yourself.

Thank you to all of you who are having to work at this scary time.  I appreciate you very much.  My husband has to do all the shopping at this time; due to I am high risk and can't go out.  I worry about him as well; as he is over age 65 yrs; as I am.  It is an uncertain time for everyone; so please stay safe and do your best to keep others safe.  

I am obsessed with this CTMH Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts.  I just can't get enough of them. There are so many ways you can use this set.  I tried to create a similar card like the one on page 24 of our current Idea book; but it doesn't really look like it.  I decided to create a second one; so here it is.  I had a lot of fun making two being creative with the background.
