Counting My Blessings with Forever Blossoms

My husband, daughter, and I decided to take a drive to Washington, DC over the weekend to get out and about for a bit. (It’s only an hour drive from where we live.) Spring in our nation’s capital is my favorite time of year, especially when the cherry blossoms are in bloom! This weekend was peak season and it was a gorgeous sight to behold!

The beauty of nature is a gift to be appreciated! Usually we would get out and walk along the paths but this year (due to “social distancing”) we stayed in our car. I was inspired to create some cards for my friends!

The Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms Dies were the perfect choice to create this beautiful inspiring scene! I chose to use the sentiment and dies from the So Sentimental Bundle to cut the opening and stamp the inside of my card.

I added a touch of color to the blossoms with Stampin’ Blends.

I hope you can take a break from the crazy, get some fresh air, and enjoy the beauty of nature! Take time to count your blessings and share some handmade kindness!

Stay well, keep safe!

  1. What a beautiful card and thought. TFS.
    You were smart to stay in the car. Sounded like thousands had the same idea to get out and enjoy the trees but didn’t enjoy from their cars! Balancing social distancing and not going stir crazy is a challenge. Stay well and be safe.

  2. I love this card and how you coordinated with your trip to see the cherry blossoms. Both the card and the photos are absolutely beautiful! You are certainly doing your part to social distance all the while still spreading your wonderful creative spirit…Hugs from the next state over!!

  3. Love this beautiful card, Jeanie. Thanks for sharing the pretty cherry blossom pictures. Getting out for a drive or a walk is a great pleasure now during these crazy times. Enjoy your day!

  4. The Cherry Blossoms in DC look beautiful. I love your card also. Thanks for sharing both. Here in California we are Sheltering in Place. Glad you were able to take the drive.
