In good times and in bad times....

Hello again everyone.  For most of us, our crafting time is filled with joy and happiness and lots of laughter.  And every now and then, there comes a time when we are faced with more difficult and challenging times.  But honestly, that's what I think is so great about this hobby of ours.  We can lose ourselves in a world of creativity and come out on the other side feeling so much better.  And we can give our work to others, whether near or far, to show them our love, to show them our support, to let them know how much we care.

I recently heard that a fellow Cricut Circle member's family lost their home and all of their belongings in a horrible house fire.  Thank God everyone was safe, but they lost everything.  So to show support, it was asked that if possible we create and send cards of support.  Here is the card I sent:


The cardstock is from Recollections.  The scalloped oval and frame are cut from the Lacy Labels ~ Cricut cartridge.  I added Stardust ~ Stickles to the butterflies; as well as Recollections ~ pearls for their bodies.  TIP - I always bend up the wings of butterflies to give them more dimension - it makes them look like they're about to take flight any minute.  The wonderful sentiment is from the Technique Tuesday ~ Thinking of You stamp set.  And the ribbon is Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations.

If you haven't done so in awhile...send a card to someone you love, make some cards to give to a local charity, or one of my personal favorites - send a card to a soldier.  Lose yourself in your creatvity and spread some love...you'll be glad you did.  :)

See you soon...

What a pretty blog you have. I'm a new follower and I agree we really need to send cards to those we love and those who may need a word of encouragement often.

Blessings,
Raina
