Today's card is my last brad card for a while...perhaps a LONG while. It's cute, though, isn't it?
Pastels are hard to photograph well...the pink looks darker in real life, but you get the idea. I love all the dots here, from Dot Spot flowers to the Polka Dot Basics "grass" to the sprinkle of brads. TEN on one card. Not too shabby!
And now for a few comments....
1. Thanks for all your comments and suggestions on my request for stamp company recommendations. As soon as I posted that request, my email went wonky and I've been trying to trouble-shoot and get it all straightened out. What a nightmare!!!! Please use the following new email address for me in the future: gsraihala at roadrunner dot com. I think I've changed it everywhere on the blogs, but you wouldn't believe how complicated that is! Once I work through these issues, I'll start poking around at some of your suggested stamp companies. Your comments are a great resource for many people!
2. The Boston bombings have hit me hard. I've stood so often at or near the finish line of Ironman races. I know the excitement and energy and fun of the crowd, the joy of seeing racers staggering toward the finish or sprinting on adrenaline, the excited voice of announcers calling the names of finishers. I've seen parents pick up their children and carry them over the finish and fist-bumped my own husband as he approached.
To think of the evil of someone setting off bombs in that environment horrifies me. I hope justice is done, but more than that, I pray the surviving victims' lives will be pieced back together and healing will happen, not just of bodies but of hearts and minds and souls. And I pray for comfort for the families of those killed. Nothing can make up for their loss. Nothing.
