Good Afternoon to you all
I hope you are well and keeping safe
Not knowing from day to day how long
Or weeks months staying indoors and keeping our distances
Will be the key to keeping this coronavirus at bay
I still do a walk a day and distancing myself
And of course crafting is a good to keep the mind occupied
So here is a card l made using this adorable free image
l made a few of these as l have 2 Grand-daughter's
With birthdays this month not sure how l will get them 
To them but at least they are made
  On this occasion l used a flat edged card 
Used Woodware corner punch to curve the edges
Scalloped Die, Free Image, Ribbon, Gems and Sentiment
My challenge will be Di's Snippets challenge below
Thank you for your visit and keep safe
