Hello Friends! I hope you are doing well. This is such a difficult time for everyone. I know there is so much going on, not only in the US; but also in the world. Protests, violence, people getting upset and impatient; wanting to get out of the house and get back to normal. For those wondering, mine and my husband's Coronavirus test were both negative. I am so grateful for that.
I am not sure what our new normal will be; but I really wish people would calm down. It is stressful knowing that there are many people out their purposely violating the rules/laws that are trying to keep us safe. I never knew there were so many selfish people in our country. I guess it's times like this; when the worst side of people come out on display. It is a very sad situation.
There are so many lies, conspiracy theories and stuff going on right now. It is a very scary place. I am glad we have crafting to keep us sane. Maybe those protesters need a hobby. I don't understand why people want to start rumors and share videos that are not true, just to get people all riled up against the government. It has never made sense to me before; and it still doesn't make sense.
I have been trying to create some new cards with our gorgeous new CTMH products. I am in love with this CTMH "Sweet Hummingbird Stamp & Thin Cuts. It is such a gorgeous set. I have been having so much fun with just stamping, that I haven't even taken time to cut any of the Hummingbirds out yet.
I made this card for a friend, who lost her father-in-law this past few days. It is very sad when family/friends pass on; but it seems to be worse right now; since no one can even have a funeral.
This card is much prettier in person.
