Hurricane Sandy and a card


Hello friends.

I'm feeling a little somber today due to the recent devastation here on the East Coast from Hurricane Sandy.  We were very fortunate not to have lost power or sustained any damage, but my thoughts are with those across the eastern U.S. who face a long period of recovery and rebuilding.

I'm squeaking in a card on this last day of Breast Cancer Awareness month, with a sentiment that seems appropriate for current events, as well.  You may have spied this card on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog on Monday along with two other beauties from fellow Girl Fridays.

I used the simple ribbon image and a sentiment from Calm & Gentle for this card, adding a border of Echo Park striped paper, some stitching, and a single pink gem.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Patterned paper:  Echo Park (Dots & Stripes Soda Fountain)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Calm and Gentle)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo)
Tool:  corner rounder
Accessories:  rhinestone, thread

Take a moment to count your blessings today, my friends.  And many thanks to you for stopping by to visit.  :)
