Good morning Crafty friends,
I hope you are all doing well. I found that my card making has kept me occupied, during this lock down period. I wanted to make a batch of cards to send out to love ones at this time. I wanted them to know we are thinking about them. Seeing as the rainbow is the symbol of hope, and is being used a lot during this pandemic I thought the set from Honey Bee Stamps was just what I was looking for. I need a quick and simple design to mass produce as I wanted about six.
