"Greetings!" by Weezilou


While I've been absent from 365 again, I'm busy making greeting cards again...some more! I saw Pam posted one she received from me, and here is a card that was inspired by...a doctor's visit!

I was in for another followup on my stomach surgery about 18 months ago, and "James" took my vitals and showed Ken and me to a room. He struck up a conversation about Nancy Pelosi's hypocrisy, seeing herself above others as she had her hair styled while salons were still closed to all others. He was preaching to the choir as far as I was concerned! We exchanged a few more sentences, and he pulled a copy of our American Constitution from his pocket! A hearty Bravo to that man! He was clearly Latin, given his last name, but his first name was Americanized. He had so much pride in his adopted country, and it made us feel wonderful to speak with him a brief while!

My doctor was pleased with all I'd done to stay healthy and manage my weight, and upon leaving, his nurse came out to chat with us as well, She's a gem, so I did a little "air hug" with my hands, and she said, "I don't mind if you don't mind"... That hug felt SO good!

Strange time, for sure, that my doctor's visit should have left me on a high and feeling so good! I'm making and writing thank you cards for all of them, and, for James, a thank you for inspiring me to design a new card as a result of our meeting.

There are no coincidences...
Thank you for posting this in honor of Constitution Day, Louise. You and I are most definitely on the same page my friend.

@seattlite OK...My heart is in my throat! I Did Not Know that today was Constitution Day! AND, I wrote..."There are no coincidences"... OK...wow! A favorite quote: "Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous", said Albert Einstein... OK then!

It just goes to show - if you have to do without something, it means so much more when it comes back! Hugging! Its an interesting composition - the only thing I would like to have is the design on the outside of the card to be the same as around the letter. Glad you are in the good books of your doctor!

@maggiemae Fun to hear from you, Maggiemae! If you look at Pam's photo, that's another of my cards with the same shape https://365project.org/pamknowler/365-year-8/2020-09-17 The marbled paper in the background is some that I made several years ago. I have a portfolio full of those papers, so I just used it in the background when I scanned the card. Being home so much, I'm enjoying using my "supplies"!

@aikiuser I've been making and sending out cards for years; it's an easy commitment to make small pieces of art! Need inspiration? Pinterest... LouAnn posted one I sent to her; I made a dozen of these for occasions before moving on to this current style which is also morphing as I go...

Great to read things are going well with you. You did a nice and great job by making this beautiful card. Strange times we live in now. Gladly we could be togetter with the birthday . But still have to keep a distance of 5 foot. No hug`s. I try to get my exercice by a neighbourhood walk or biking.
As I`ve build a model of of the U.S.S. Constutution 1798 (the one in Boston.) I`m every day reminded on it.

@casablanca While MIA, I've not been w/o a myriad of activities! Currently visiting the grandsons up the coast which has allowed me a zoo visit and, at last. *fresh photography*! I've taken photos of the eldest grand out surfing with his buddies, and the youngest has spent hours with me designing things on the Cricut...Halloween decorations and Christmas themed houses as well! I wake each morning trying to decide on which activity to pursue today! I come by and peek in on my friends, but would rather write an actual letter soon... You've not been forgotten ♥!
