Calm before the storm

It was a beautiful day yesterday and it really felt like spring.  We reached 68 degrees with lots of sunshine. Today it is lovely and sunny again but we are expecting rain and then snow over the next few days!  Its definately springtime in Utah. 

Yesterday we spent most of the day going to 3 different stores, trying to get all the groceries we need.  I have an order placed for Friday (used to be able to get same day pick up but now its 4 days out) but last time we didn’t even receive half of what we needed.  So this time we went from store to store and managed to get most of what we need…other than Toilet paper, paper towels and tissues!  Those are like gold dust.  So, once we get Friday’s order, we will be good for a few weeks. It was nice to see that the stores had a lot more stock available, last time we went it was hard to find anything we needed.  I really try to limit shopping and only go out every few weeks.  I do worry about my daughters who work with the public on a daily basis.  Especially my daughter who works in a bank and there are no safety measures in place for her, other than hand santizer. 

I’ve been avoiding the news as much as I can as its better for my mental health. 

I made another set of “hello” cards yesterday.  I’ve been enjoying using embossing folders lately.  This one features a wreath and I stamped “hello” in the middle of it.

I used some cardstock from Michaels which has 5 different pastel shades in it. I embossed each panel and then stamped the “hello” in the middle.  They are very simple cards but I really like how they turned out.   Some of the supplies I used are listed below:
