Our Thoughts Are With You

     I love doing the Color My Heart Dare, but it was hard to concentrate with the horrific news out of Connecticut.  Then an idea and an address to send cards to Sandy Hook Elementary School was posted in the CTMH Facebook group Sister Chat. I can picture the students returning to school after Christmas break sad & weary, only to be greeted by card & letters from all over the USA and perhaps the world!  What a wonderful way this would be to bring some cheer back to their precious building.
     CMH Dare #22 uses Twilight and Sweetleaf.  I cut the card from page 36 of Artiste at 5" in Twilight card stock. I used a small piece of Sweetleaf to back the heart cut-out. I folded a length of Black Tule in thirds to wrap around the top of the card. The heart is stamped in Twilight on Sweetleaf CS from the Adore stamp set (A1123). The angels are from Angel Sent (A1099), and the sentiment is from A Blossom (A1121), all stamped in Black.  The flower is cut from page 39 in Art Philosophy (again using Twilight & Sweetleaf CS) and sponged in Twilight ink. After alternating colors and curling the ends of the petals, I finished it with a large black Licorice Opaque (Z1335).


  1. Great idea, Joanne. Your card is very pretty and very thoughtful. Thanks for playing at Color My Heart despite the sad news.


  2. Nice card, Joanne and it is nice to know that it is going toward such an important cause. Happy Holidays
