I'm not sure if you've heard about this, but we experienced two horrible situations here in Norway yesterday. Living in the city where the bomb detonated feels quite surreal to me. We are all shocked, and these events have influenced us in a big way during these two days. There has been near continious news on our national tv-channel from yesterday afternoon, and we have watched the numbers of deceased people get bigger and bigger.
My sympathies goes out to everyone here in Norway that has been personally affected by these horrible situations, and also to those who may have found these events to be especially frightening.
Today, I needed a little break from watching the sad news on tv, and so I got to working on a card. I'm not sure if I really like how it turned out, but I couldn't see anything in the end that would make it better. I guess maybe my mind was not completely focused on the card. This card was made for the current Lawnscaping challenge:
Here's the card I made:
I used the little bunny from Lawn Fawn's "Critters in the 'Burbs" and the airplane and swirl from "Bon Voyage". The sentiment was stamped using "Jessie's ABC's". I made the parachutes by tracing around spellbinders circle nestabilities with my Memento marker, and adding in curved lines for the pattern on the parachute. The sentiment was diecut with the "Double-Ended Banners" die from Papertrey Ink.
I've just added a poll above the blogpost here on my blog. If you could please leave your answer to my question there, I would appreciate that.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
