Love and thoughts to the world of crafters

Good morning, for my mid month post I am merely copying what I have written on the challenge blogs at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More, it's self explanatory....................

"I hope everyone is keeping safe and well during these unprecedented troubled times, it's all quite surreal and the daily news bulletins from all around the World suggest we are going to have to weather some stormy times before it improves. 

Amidst all that's going on posting a mid month reminder seems futile, but I know craft has helped many through difficult times in the past and perhaps now more than ever we will be grateful of our hobby to help us through and keep us sane. We as a team send our love and thoughts to everyone".

Staying safe here Down Under - although the number of cases here doubled in 24 hours! I will be sticking close to home from now on! (All cases are travel related to date)

Love how you have made the flower become the frame on your first card and what wonderful tulips on your second card. Great backgrounds too. I think we are all a bit incredulous about what is happening, it is so strange. Do keep yourself safe and well xx

Two beautiful cards Brenda, beautiful images and lovely shades of blue, unusual for you to use blue but looks great with the subtle yellow background. A really super tulip creation too.

Clever use of a frame on the first pretty card and the second card I can almost see those tulips swaying in the breeze.

Vicky Hayes said...

I love the clever way your frame has turned into the flowers in the first card Brenda, and those bright tulips with their arty background are just stunning.

Thank you for those words. I feel that the world has become so small now and everyone is going through the same troubles. I have never been so grateful for crafting.

I enjoyed your comment about Eva on my blog! You must miss your lovely Buffy. Hugs, Vicky x

Lovely words Brenda and two beautiful cards. Both very pretty, I cannot choose which I prefer. Stay safe! Marlies x

Craftyfield said...

Both are enchanting, Brenda. The first one has my preference because of the shade blue you used but that's just me! Strange and difficult times, but maintaining the routines we can safely maintain is good for our sanity, so yes our crafting and blogging is important after all! Take care, x.
