A Tea Cup Thank You Card but with a Heavy Heart


The rain left but the cool wind remained today so I was pretty much grounded. I did take a chance and watered the garden this afternoon when the wind went down a bit but that was it for me outside today. My heart if heavy today after reading about the police officers gunned down in Moncton, N.B. this morning by a mentally deranged man. This, a day after my own granddaughter was attacked by her former friend and roommate (who hid her mental disorders for awhile) and has a concussion and stitches in her face. (The girl is now in jail) Please pray not only for those that were hurt and for the families of those killed but for all the people who suffer from mental illnesses. Pray they get help before they hurt someone else. Tis a sad world some days.

On a less serious note, I needed a thank you card for a friend of mine who saved some card sleeves for me and this is what I sent her, along with a quilting pattern I think she will enjoy making.
 

The image is a Magnolia stamp and all the oval and rectangle dies are from Spellbinders. The image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and then I painted on Glossy Accents over the tea cup to make it shiny like glass. The sentiment was die cut with a Provo Craft die and then I just punched out a flower from a piece of the left over blue paper and added a blue gem in the centre. The paper is from the stash. Yup, still using the stash and yet it never seems to go down.

That’s all for a cool Thursday.

Cheers

Violet

I'm so sorry to hear about your granddaughter Violet!! My goodness!I hope she will be alright.......

I wonder sometimes about the news...if reporting on these incidents might just be giving people with mental illness the extra push to do it themselves..you know gives them ideas.... I don't know, your right, its a sad , sad world some days......
