Merry and Bright

It's been a long few days. I thought I'd have more time to craft but that just hasn't happened yet. Tomorrow we have new carpet coming. We've been out of our bedroom since last October and I'd love to be back to somewhat normal but I think we are taking a big risk. DH wants it done so they are coming. Praying that all goes well as the number of cases of the virus in Indiana continue to rise. So we've been prepping the three rooms that will get new carpet. We've been pulling up carpet and pad and placing it downstairs in our extra room on the floor. So we had to move everything out down there to lay it down and then move it all back in. Quite the job. We had the twins all day yesterday so not much time for crafting until this evening. Here's a card I just finished.


The image is Christmas Light Kitty from QKR Stmapede. I colored it with Spectrum Noir and American Craft markers and die cut it with MFT Stitched Circles. The designer paper is all from American Craft Christmas paper pack. The sentiment is from Blessed is the Season stamp set (retired) from Gina K Designs.  All the layers are backed with black card stock. I am entering these challenges:

As the news get scary with each passing day, please know that I keep all your you in my prayers. Please stay safe and healthy. Thanks for stopping by!

This is an adorable image, Donna, and your lovely design looks so good. You have made a fun and yet still a pretty card!

I think the rules must be different in the USA as here in Canada. We are all expected to keep 6 feet of social distancing between anyone who does not live full time in our home. So that means no kids or grandkids in our homes. When you go to walk a dog, people cross the street to stay away from you, if they are out walking too. Al does the shopping and says that the vast majority of people keep the 6 feet distance while shopping too.

Drugstores and grocery stores are still open, but most other businesses are closed. In many provinces, all non essential businesses have been ordered to close. Our borders are closed except to returning Canadians!

It is certainly a changing wold! Who would have predicted all these rules!

Take care and enjoy your new carpet.

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.
