A message in these difficult days

There is much to be grateful for these days, even if sometimes it doesn't feel like it.  I have been seeing creations out there by people attempting to inject a bit of hope into desperation, and I thought I'd do my small part:

I created this sentiment to fit into a heart shape and then decided it needed something more, so I added an encouraging word.  I printed up a bunch using some different fonts of both the heart message and the encouraging word and will be sending these out to folks that need a little lift right now.  I didn't create these in my graphics program, just on a word processor so they aren't going to be freebies, but I encourage all you creative people out there to put your crafting caps on and do the same!

The card base is Mossy Meadow with a layer of Rococo Rose die cut with the Ornate Layers dies.  I added a layer of Ornate Garden designer series paper that was cut using the Ornate Layers dies and then punched a scalloped heart from Mossy Meadow and added the sentiment punched with the plain heart.  The encouraging word was cut out and mounted on a piece of Mossy Meadow.  I added some gold accents to the corners of the dsp piece and it was done.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all staying healthy and safe!
