I created this card for two reasons... one for love and one for fun. I happened upon a hop this past weekend, Stamping For Families. A small group of crafty friends with large hearts. I found we had something in common...we are all concerned with the tragedy going on right now in our country... children being separated from their parents.
This is not a political post and I won't be discussing with you my thoughts on that subject. But whichever way your politics sway, you have to agree that separating children from loving parents is never the solution to a problem. So I decided to join in and link up a card. If you do feel the same way and want to help, there are some awesome resources and links at Sandy Allnock's blog here.
Also, I wanted to create something for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. The gorgeous inspiration photo... literally made my mouth water.
When I thought about what kind of card I would create, my thoughts immediately turned to this Words To Live By: Courage sentiment set by PTI. I am wishing all of the families that are separated strength and courage until and after they are reunited. It will be a long road with many struggles and obstacles even after. My heart hurts for them.
And what better represents freedom, renewal, and hope but a butterfly. And I decided to make a rainbow of butterflies.. as so often happens, the colors in the inspiration photo for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop are what inspired me. What a beautiful photo isn't it?
So that's it for me today. I'll be back on Wednesday with something else. If you'd like to support or link up to the Stamping for Families Blog Hop you can start at Sandy Allnocks place. There are a few prizes being offered by some of the participating bloggers, but go for the love and inspiration.
If you'd like to join along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for June 2018, then you can link up here! You must use at least one Papertrey Ink product and be inspired by the photo below... you know... the gorgeous one!
Thanks for stopping and if somehow you don't agree with this cause that speaks to me, then just tell me what you think about my card!
