Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



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’
