Sending Virtual Hugs with a Handmade Card and Easter Treat


It's time to be sending virtual hugs through the mail with our handmade cards and other projects! 

Don't know about you but crafting makes me super happy!  Aren't we blessed to have a hobby that can occupy our time and spread joy to others?

The following two projects were created on my Facebook LIVE on Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown. The posting here is a bit delayed due to my slow internet in these times.  I've been waiting  quite a spell for the uploads to take place so that the video to be shared here.  By all means, no complaints just a little explanation for why the posting here at Ink and Inspirations aren't as timely as usual.;)

Here is the card that you are going to love to re-create...


Two cards like the one above were put in the mail today!

Here's an Easter treat wrap that can be easily mailed in a bubble mailer. :)
