Birthday Card Using CTMH Musical Harmony Stamp & Thin Cuts Z3776

Hello Friends!  I hope you are all doing well and having fun this summer.  I know it isn't summer everywhere; so enjoy whatever season you are in, wherever you are. LOL!  It is a hot summer here in Southern CA.  I am worried about all the states that are dealing with fires, floods and COVID.  It is overwhelming with all the problems that are facing the people in the US as well as everyone overseas.  Life has been tough this past 18 months for everyone in the world.  Please take care of yourself and your family.

I would appreciate prayers for my nephew, Todd,  from Missouri, who is early 40's and has 4 children, has COVID and is fighting for his life.  He started out with just a tickle in his throat that turned into a bad cough.  His oxygen level dropped to 88 by the time he made it to the Dr.'s office and he was sent straight to the hospital.  He was then transferred to another hospital out of state and put on a ventilator the morning after the transfer.  He has been on a ventilator for a few days now; and has developed an abscess in his brain.  My heart is breaking for him and his family and what they must be going through.  All I can do is pray for him and for them.  

Please take care of each other and show your love for your family and friends; because we do not know what tomorrow will bring for ourselves, loved ones and friends.  Life is short. Please get the COVID Vaccine; so you can protect yourself and others.  The Delta version is worse than the one we had last year and more contagious.  Wearing a double mask is now recommended.  

I created this card for my stepson, Ben.  He loves music.  He does not play a guitar; but plays an Erhu; but I don't have a photo of that one.  LOL!  I think he will like the card either way.  I cased this card from one I saw on Pinterest "HandmadebyKathieK" and she does have an Etsy shop; which I just found while searching for who created it.
