     This was such a quick card, due mostly to the Art Impressions image being made into a sticker for easy assembly of the card.  The card base is pink CS, the purple ribbon is from  Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the bow was hand-tied using a bow maker.

     I know these ladies are having the time of their lives!   It makes me miss my crafting group horribly and I can't wait until we can all get together again.  I remember when the lock down started and we cancelled the first meeting, then the second, and finally we were saying, "Well, we'll try for the first week next month" and that was nearly 6 months ago!  We're all feeling like we've been imprisoned and penalized just because we breathe.  :-(

     And to think this is what we did for fun on all the hottest days of summer when staying inside in the air conditioning was the thing we desired most.  There were times when we'd meet 3 days in a row just to share the cool air and friendship of crafting together.  


     Find some fun in your life whether or not you need air conditioning today.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Love this card Connie, the image and ribbon are beautiful. It is rather chilly here today, definite nip in the air to let us know here in the UK autumn/fall is on its way.

What a quick and easy card to make and the memories it brings on scrapping together. With our weather in AZ being at record high many of the days it's made it easier to be homebound, and with the Zoom program we have been able to bring us re able to get together every Sunday for our crafting and chatting, but we too are looking for the day we can also share some hugs. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.

What a fun image and card. Speaking of fun, I read a great quote today by Albert Einstein. He said, "Creativity is intelligence having fun."

Great card, Connie! My little crop group has taken to a weekly all-day Zoom but it doesn't replace the hugs and fellowship and food we usually share. Your card is a fabulous depiction of friendship. Thank you for joining us at Double Trouble Challenge #65.
