Todays posting goes out to all those affected by this weeks unspeakable tragedies. Boston is close to my heart, as my daughter goes to school in Boston. She is ok. My co-worker has family in West. They are ok as well.
Turning on any sort of media: the tv, a computer, or the radio, you can not help but see or hear the endless loop of the coverage of what has occurred this week. We will get through this. It will make us stronger, as one, as a whole.
I debated whether or not to post a creative project regarding this weeks events. I chose to do so because we cope in different ways. People need to know you care. If I inspire you to create something for a family member, a friend, a co-worker, or someone you don’t even know to uplift their spirits, then I have done something good.
I have had this sketch pinned for a few days now. It’s from Technostamper. They host a Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. This one is TSSC259. It had been nagging at me to try it. So, I did. I reversed my design from the original.
It’s a simple card. I used the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Pad to stamp leaves from the Secret Garden stamp set onto Concord Crush card stock. My photo is tilted a bit to show off the leaves. They are difficult to see and photograph. My sentiment comes from Word Play. Retired Poly Twill ribbon and Large Basic Pearls finish this design off.
