You know it is with a saddened heart that I made this card using Lauras' sketch from 2 sketches 4 U.
Last weekend we had some dreadful fires here in Victoria with some communities completely wiped out and a lot of people loosing their homes and loved ones. I think no one in Australia has been unaffected by these fires. With continuous TV and Radio coverage you could not shed a tear or 2 when watching or hearing the news about people loosing friends and family, people being reunited with the ones they thought gone, seeing the injured animals, seeing whole communities burnt, seeing the generosity of people and companies by their donations, basically you sat down to watch the news and you new within 5 minutes you would be crying! But the generosity of everyone is very overwelming, even to watch the generosity on the news is very moving ... so there has been a call out to make cards for the fire victims to remind them that we (people not affected by the fire) are thinking of them and wish them well for the future and that they are not alone and can count on the community at large.
So this card will be one of the many cards I hope to make this weekend so that it can be given to the fire victims and that they may know that I am thinking of them and that they may have a little bit of creative cheer in their lives even if it is only for a few minutes.
