Social Stamping - Sunshine

Hello and welcome to the weekly Social Stamping Blog Hop with so many talented crafters around the world joining in.
My friend Kelly Kent is the mastermind behind this and she put the group together to share our creations in a time where we are all social distancing and many are in isolation. It is a very unnerving time for a lot of people as some have medical issues and loved ones who are compromised and can not afford to get ill. Creating is my sanity at the moment as I am a pretty social person and not being able to meet friends just at the coffee shop or have a card class is really hard.
We have had our restrictions slightly lifted so we are able to have gatherings of 10 people. Hopefully I will be able to start playing netball again in the near future!

This week I sent my children back to school! What a quiet week it has been! I have been able to do some housework and make some cards.

So here is the next theme that Kelly has set for us and it is "Sunshine"

Hello from the lovely Kelly's page
