Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
We’ve been locked in our homes for more than a month now due to the deadly virus ravaging the world. Restrictions that it had imposed on us have been tedious and tiresome but I think we can still call ourselves lucky if our only worry is the inability to go shopping whenever we want. There are thousands more miserable, suffering and fighting for their lives, needing help and support. For all those who are sick I dedicate these get well soon cards:
For the “boy” card I used my favourite Denim&Friends collection, adding a hand-coloured stamped image and die-cut patches and a pill blister.
I used similar elements for the “girl” card, but arranged the design horizontally rather than vertically and used the Little Street Cafe collection 🙂
As you can see, I can make flowerless cards too! 😀
Having made the support-get-well-soon cards, I naturally thought of those who take care of so many sick people these days: doctors, nurses, paramedics – who often risk their own lives to save others. They always deserve respect and gratitude, but especially with this pandemic situation they are the world’s bravest heroes. And so I made a couple of thank you cards too:
I followed the collection and images pattern, but added some flowers this time 🙂
Here are the cards with some medical utensils instead of the images:
While making these cards I was thinking that even though we’re stuck at home we’re so lucky to be alive and healthy, I was thinking of thousands of people fighting for their lives and so many of them losing the battle, and of those who risk their lives to save others. I do pray this pandemic ends soon and that everybody is safe – and free to go outside without fear – again!
Here’s my list of supplies:

While we can’t do much to heal the sick ones, we can still do a lot to make everyone safer. So please stay at home, save lives 🙂
