It has been a very sad week with what happened in Las Vegas. I just don't understand the people who claim they must never alter that amendment when that amendment was created when muskets were the major weapon. Heck, back in the 1880s, Wyatt Earp with his brothers made sure to clean up the towns they were watching over by having all people leave their guns before they come into the town. Just think about it.
Ok, these 2 cards are made out of love. My first card was with the people who have been affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas but it can be used for anyone who needs to know that love and remembrance is what is needed.

Butterflies, in native teaching, means joy in life, and I thought this is needed this week more than ever. Think about it, The Monarch starts hitting the road and travels thousands of miles from Canada and Northern U.S. all the way to central Mexico. I stamped and embossed the butterflies, which I bought about 1 1/2 years ago, and coloured them with the pastel chalks. I embossed the folder by running it through the cuddlebug machine. I took my knife and cut out the oval centre which I adhered to the butterfly paper. I coloured the edge and filigree with the wink of Stella gold pen and added the corner stickers.
Brusho colour powders, bird home stamp, embossing dye ink and blue dye embossing powder, saying sticker.
Happy Little Stampers-CAS Challenge-One Layer
Crafty Creations-Anything Goes
This was an easy card and I tried to make it nice and simple called a CAS. I dabbed a bit of the brusho colour on the white cardstock and spritzed water to activate the colours. You never know what you are going to get. The colours just pop and run where ever they go. Once dry, I stamped the image and embossed it with a dark blue powder. I did the same with the corner stamps and, as per the norm, made them crooked. I added the saying and gave it to my hubby since we celebrated 11 years together. He is my rock and he is a wonderful guy even though I want to kill him on occasion:)
FYI?..I am all better and am hoping soon my pain will be better. I will let you know next week. My mom is slowly ebbing away. She is so skinny and now just wants to sleep. I know that I will get a call, unsure when, that she just never woke up. Truly a good way to go.
