People panic, toilet paper is off the shelves, same with pasta and flour! People need to calm things down!!! I have to be careful since I have asthma, although not severe, plus I have a sunken chest...my double D aside, I apparently have a 1/3 less the lung capacity so I need to be careful just like I was before. I don’t want the flu or even the common cold so, washing hands, trying not to touch door handles etc...and I do wipe down my work space and my purse and wallet since I place my purse down everywhere. Thankfully, my work will not have anyone come to our office for a face to face and we are locking our doors, so people have to make payments on line or at their bank. One thing I will continue long after this virus is gone is not shaking hands. Just think about the number of men who take a leak behind the bushes( we see that on tv all the time) and then get back in the car and touch you..ick! Women are not much better since I saw many, in public washrooms, turning on the tap, rinsing their hand for 2 seconds and leave..WTF?? I can’t count the number of times I am at a stop light, look over to the next car watching some person digging for gold up their nostril. Why would I want to shake their hand? I want a great greeting that many African Americans seem to be using( well, I saw this on the Late show with Trevor Noah) which is the Wakanda greeting. Would they be offended if I started using that? The bottom line, please stay calm, we will not turn into zombies, we will make it through this but we don’t need to be jerks about it so don’t buy everything up and don’t be a real schmuck and sell it afterwards for huge prices. Ok that is my rant now on to something pretty...at least, I hope you think so.

This is, I hope a clean and simple card..well for me it is. I love using my cuddlebug to create the patterns for the background but I really love using my distress inks to create different backgrounds and one truly can't go wrong. I love that saying which, I think, is true. I hope this is considered clean and simple...it's so hard for me to do that:)

I gave this to my hubby who really loved it and I think it works despite the flower and glitter. The flower looks a bit like a weed and some men like glitter-look at the Blues artists.I had these paper remnants so I built up the card. I stamped the flower in blue and used blue embossing glitter to set it. This is the first time I used washi tape which is just pretty coloured tape you can place anyway and it will stick. I used it to frame the flower and at the top and bottom of the card. I added the crystals on each corner. I have no sports that I really watch unless it is figure skating and they will often wear blues and purples(never mind being bruised by all the falls they endure), so I chose Blue and Purple which many skaters have worn in the past.
I have made more cards and hope to show them over the weeks. I will not go out and eat at restaurants right now, nor will I go to any events or movie theatres until this virus seems more under control. Just being safe not nutty. ..well, I am a bit nutty but that's a good thing.
