A Socially Distant Hug

Those of us living through this pandemic will certainly never forget it and we'll be telling the stories to our children and grandchildren about schools and shops closing and having to stay at home, and not being able to find toilet paper!

There are also many products we can purchase having to do with these times and the fun stamp and die set, Hang In There, recently released by Honey Bee Stamps is one of those things.
Inside, I couldn't help myself, I had to use the fun toilet paper roll included with the set.  
The quote sentiment is from Impression Obsession and the How's it Going stamp is from PTI.  
The roll of TP is popped up on foam dots. 
The pretty floral papers are from the Spring Fling 6x6 Paper Pack from Lawn Fawn.
 The bunnies are colored with Copics and popped up on foam dots.
I made 8 of these cards and have sent them to some people in my church - just to keep in touch while we are not able to meet on Sundays.

I'm linking my card to:

My scallop edge has dots in it, and there are dots in the DP as well as the cheeks of the bunny!

These are adorable, Julia! They are sure to lift the spirits of the recipients! Love the sentiments and the toilet paper is certainly appropriate for these times! Glad you are well and making the most of your time at home. xoxo

What an adorable and timely card design, sis! You will cheer up your friends from church no end, especially when they see the inside! Thinking about your comment that we will be telling the story of this pandemic down through the generations ... it's all fine until the story gets to the part about how people hoarded toilet paper even though this virus does not impact the digestive system in any way. Each time it's told, the listener will ask, "Say what now?" lol! It is indeed the conundrum of the pandemic. I feel a song coming on! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell
