These cute cows from Over the Moon were on my list of retiring stamp sets to make sure you saw before they leave our lineup in May. They are just so cheerful and funny! I thought it was a great match for some of the sentiments in the new COVID-themed digital download fundraiser announced yesterday.
Speaking of fundraisers, yesterday afternoon the total was already over $41,000 donated by stampers! After not even 24 hours of being available. I think that's awesome!
Also speaking of fundraisers, I know that some of you were disappointed in the choice of charities available. I share your concerns; however, donating to COVID-specific efforts through these organizations is not the same as just donating willy-nilly to the organization as a whole. Your money will be used only for COVID-specific research and assistance--that's good to know!
Great minds think alike--I had decided to offer a printable myself but hadn't gotten to it yet before Stampin' Up did! So I did go ahead and make one available free for you all, and you can let me know where you donated in the spirit of the COVID fundraising efforts.
Ok--more cows ahead!
I had so much fun using up scraps and odds and ends last night making quarantine #sendsunshine cards. Mike brought me back a big roll of postage stamps yesterday and I intend to use them ALL this week! I think we need to redouble our efforts to keep each other encouraged right now, when it is clear we are not through this thing yet, not by a long shot.
If you don't have time right now to make brand new cards, take a few from your backup stash and replace the greetings with cute ones from the quarantine download. No one will ever know the difference--and most importantly, the cards will be in the mail shortly to go brighten someone's day!
