Hello, everyone!  Hope all's well!

Today, in lieu of not having the time to prepare a tutorial to present over at Sheila's for my DT project, I'll be sharing a quick birthday card I recently made for my cousin.  Before I do, however, I'd like to say if you don't already know, Sheila lost her father and I know sending some love and extending our prayers to her and her family will be appreciated during their time of loss.

I'd also like to acknowledge several new followers!  Thank you so much, welcome, and I look forward to getting better acquainted with you; as well, I hope to be around for a visit with you as soon as time allows.

I made this card in Silhouette studio by welding together 3 doilies to 3 welded card panels:



The reason the images show "sisters"  and "cousins" is because my cousin and I are very close and friends/family call us sister-cousins, and we refer to each other as "sister-cuz".  The images on the card (which I found on the internet) are a print and cut.  These images just caught my attention immediately for this card. I didn't think to take a picture of the card closed until just now but if I had the closed card appears as though we're holding hands.

I know this is an unusually short post for me and as I have some new materials to play with (maybe even new to you) I hope to have time to play and create a craft project/tutorial for you soon.  I also look forward to visiting and being able to get back to catching up seeing your projects I've missed.  However, although I am well, family matters are unfortunately consuming my time again right now.  Of course I have faith things will get better sooner than later.

In the meantime, I'm sorry I have to run but I do hope you like my card.

As always, thank you for stopping by!   You're all the best extended family-friends I could wish for!

Hugs
