Miss You

I had this card ready to photograph and post for yesterday afternoon but frankly after I saw what happened in Boston, I could just not motivate myself to get it done. I just kept thinking. Not again. Not again. Please not again. My heart and my prayers go out to the people of Boston, especially to those people who have injured or lost loved ones. And a huge thank you to the first responders who did such a magnificent job of saving lives while risking their own.

So anyway, my card today features a stamp from the Taylored Expressions Let's Chat set. I really wanted a clean and graphic look, combining paper from the Fancy Pants The Good Life pad with  a chipboard arrow that I covered with patterned paper and an old school metal rim tag for the sentiment. 

Products: Taylored Expressions stamps, Fancy Pants dp, Maya Road chipboard, Kaisercraft pearls, My Favorite Things Die-namics, Copic Markers

At times like these I can't help but wonder that crafts and cards are too trivial to share. Yet I also know that allowing terrorists (whoever they are) to interrupt our way of life and take away the small pleasures gives them a win that we can't allow them to own.

  1. Nancy, you are correct that not posting would allow these terrorist to win. These horrible individuals are trying to destroy the joy and happiness of our daily lives and instead fill it with fear and dread. We need to grieve for the lives lost and injuries caused, but also stand strong in the face of those intent on destroying our way of life. Thank you for posting and keeping the light of freedom shining brightly!

  2. Btw, fabulous card! Love your design layout! So clever!

  3. Hi Nancy- great card-- and I agree- we cannot let the bad guys win! We need to keep on living our lives- but man- the sadness is so overwhelming! Tress said it all so perfectly! Please continue to make wonderful and inspiring cards and thanks for your prayers for Boston!
