Hello, How you holding up these days? Today was rough, emotional wise. I just can’t help but feel extremely bad for the nurses and doctors on the front lines day after day. I can’t even imagine what they are going through. As I sit here in the “lap of luxury” in my comfy house, with a stocked fridge, watching TV…all while knowing that others around the world are struggling so much, you can’t help feel quite guilty, to say the least.
Anyways, I am sure you probably stopped by to escape for a while, and I am not helping one tiny bit right about now, so let’s move on. Today’s card is perfect for how I am feeling right now and let me explain why. Today’s card is for two challenges. Over at Just Add Ink they have the letter E for their challenge. The first thing I thought of when I sat down to make my card that depicted my mood was the word Empathy.
EMPATHY is defined as; the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within their frame of reference, that is, the capacity to place oneself in another’s position.
I may not fully understand what the nurses, doctors, EMT workers, and the list goes on and on are going through, I do in fact have extreme EMPATHY for each and every one of them. So that is where the sentiment came to be. It is not a typical Sympathy card, but I made it for someone that loves butterflies. And I know she will like it. It is a CASE of a card I made a year or so ago.
I am also linky my card up once again over at The Paper Players where it’s a Tic Tac Toe Board and I have selected the row: Rhinestones, Spring and Butterfly
I think that is all I have for you tonight. If you have any questions about the details of my card, just let me know. Take care and stay safe, Nanc’

This is just lovely, and your E for empathy is perfect. I feel the same way! The butterflies are gorgeous, especially in the bright colors. I don’t always think that sympathy cards need to be dark colors. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Players this week!

I love the butterflies and bright colours Nanc’ – just the perfect pick me up on your blog today, despite the fact that it is a sympathy card. It would definitely bring cheer to the recipient. Thanks for playing Tic-Tac-Toe with us over at The Paper Players this week!
