RSG My Santa Wishlist

This is the third Wednesday of October, which means it is the day that Kelly, Barb, and I reveal our Ready, Set, Go cards. 

Not sure what Ready, Set, Go is? Well, it's a lot of fun! And a bit of creativity. And an extreme challenge theme.

Ready, Set, Go is an idea that Kelly came up with and she invited Barb and I to join her on the adventure. We take turns choosing the theme (this month it's Kelly's turn), but the idea is for it to be a bit more challenging than just the average theme.

This is what Kelly had to say about this month's theme...

My Santa Wishlist 

Nope.  Not A Santa image with a wishlist! 
YOUR wishlist :)
Please create a card that shares with us something that you are dreaming of or longing for. Are you hoping for a vacation?
 A new car? Some new stamp toys?
 Peace and quiet (me, LOL! J/K!) 
Whatever reflects your heart’s desires, let your card reflect what you are wishing for. 

I'll be the first to admit my card is very simple, not at all what one thinks of when we mention extreme challenges. Truth is, most of my cards are very simple... that's just the way I roll. But I did put a lot of thought into Kelly's challenge.

After pondering my wish list I realized the thing I most wish for is for this pandemic to be over. My husband and I have known many people who have lost their lives from COVID. We know countless more who have had it and recovered. It's caused us (well, mostly me) to stay home more than I ever have before in my entire life. 

Once I'd decided what my wish was, I had to figure out how to portray it on a card. I decided to simply go with a get well sort of card, knowing that I want everyone to be well. 

No. more. COVID.

Jenaette, this is such a wonderful look at the beautiful soul you are - more than just a card, this is such a sweet sentiment to think of others first and rid the world of this dreaded Covid. I couldn't agree more! Your card is just bautiful - love that black and white gingham ribbon! TFS your card!

A beautiful card Jeanette - and I hear the pain in your heart over Covid and it's effects.... I too am less keen to go out, even in our small, as yet unaffected by Delta, town.
Stay safe

I know what you mean, Jeanette. I live in a small town, only 2,800 people, but we have had more deaths here than I care to think about. I think COVID is easily spread through our Post Office. Everyone has to have a PO box. There is no mail delivery to our homes. I too have lost too many classmates and neighbors to this virus. I don't think it will ever completely go away. Hopefully more will realize that vaccinations are important. I get out a bit more, grocery shopping and traveling to nearby towns. Still doing church from home and never letting my guard down. Finally, some good clean habits are being formed, or at least I hope and pray. Beautiful card. Thanks for sharing.
