My heart sank when I heard the news of yet another school shooting.
Florida suffered such an incredible loss and I am simply devastated for all those effected by such an atrocity.
Mental illness is real in our world, very real. We need to do something to help people and to protect people. But what?
I don’t think any amount of gun reform will fix this plague. I think it’s a people and heart issue.
We’ve become almost desensitized to it. I remember the very first mass school shooting, Columbine. It was horrifying and the amount of outpouring and discussion over it was huge. Now when we see one of these come across the news my response is, “Another one? I am so sad for these people” And then I pick up and go on about my day. It’s so sad that we’ve gotten to this place.
Today the cards I am sharing will be mailed with a note inside of hope and encouragement. I am praying that when I put them in the mail they will get into the hands of someone that God had the message for. I am praying God will make sure they find the path to give that person some piece of hope. Hope is our strength. It’s what gets us through something so tragic our earthly minds can’t cope with it.
TIPS for this card:
- Use your inks and sponges to blend color on a piece of card stock to create your own card stock background.
- Sprinkle water droplets on the card stock and then use a paper towel to soak up the color, this creates more texture.
- Use a die cut to cut out a shape, and then use the negative and the shape to make two cards.
