This is what I wish for everyone out there, not only at Christmas time, but always! My heart is aching for the special people out there that are battling illnesses. I am reading about this more and more each day, more and more people are struggling to manage their pain and it's leaving me feeling helpless. I hate it! I wish for Peace, Love and Joy for all those beautiful human beings.
My father and I had a constant battle, he always told me I was a dreamer, the things that I wished for would not materialise (and I am not referring to any material things here). I think he meant that I was expecting too much from the world we live in, maybe he was afraid I would get hurt. I still get told today that I am a dreamer. But that is who I am, and that is who I want to be...I believe in something better, I believe in improvement, I just believe...what would be the flip side of not believing? It just does not look appealing to me. What would be our purpose in life if we did not believe in something good? It's just not acceptable to me.
Sorry, just feeling a bit emotional.
Here is a card I made today using some beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye from their "12 Days of Christmas" 6 X 6 pad.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); desinger paper (My Mind's Eye); Neenah Solar White
Ink: Versamark; Versafine Onyx Black; Fired Brick distress ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (S5068 Poinsettia & Birds; CL343)
Other: White embossing powder; MFT File Tab Die; Hero Arts gems; Corner Chomper
I love these papers and so I simply embossed the background stamp onto the designer paper with white embossing powder. I lightly inked all the edges of the paper with Fired Brick DI. A little tab, a sentiment and two gems finished off my card. And I used the corner chomper all around.
This is for everyone out there that needs some peace, some love and some joy in their lives, some I know, some I don't, it doesn't matter because you are all on my heart today!
