Sending Hugs card using CTMH You Make Me Happy Operation Smile Stamp Set

Hello Friends!  I had Coronavirus testing yesterday and what an experience that was.  It was a drive up site, where we were handed our own kit and did the test ourselves.  I had to sit in a long line for 2 hrs today in Los Angeles County in our cars, waiting for my turn.  I think there were at least 200 cars or more ahead of me in line.  

My husband went to a different site near his work and he was in and out in 5 minutes with no lines.  Isn't that interesting?  I don't know why we are not told ahead of time of how long to expect in lines like this; so we could at least prepare ourselves.  

I am grateful that they are doing the testing for everyone now; rather than only for those with urgent and specific symptoms.  None of us know if we are carriers of the virus or not; especially since many people have no symptoms at all.  We won't know for several days how we test.  

I created these animal cards last month; but still trying to get them all posted.  I finally finished the last one this morning when I couldn't sleep.   LOL!  It is an Operation Smile stamp set; so CTMH donates $7 for each purchase, to help the children.  I am using CTMH You Make Me Happy D1920.  I wish that we had dies to match, as that would be fun; but these are awesome and all occasion.
