It was a year ago that a horrible tragedy affected the Boston Marathon. Even though I don’t live in Boston- today we are all a “Bostonian”. We are Boston Strong. Today is a day to reflect on those we lost, those that were injured and all the obstacles they have over come over the past year.
Absolutely Everything, a local stamp store teamed up with Hero Arts and created this custom stamp. The profits made went to the One Fund Boston. My friend Lindsey grabbed me one and sent it to me when she was visiting AE (it is more her local store then mine) I am so happy she did, and I love having this stamp proudly displayed on my stamp shelves. I am not sure if the stamp is still available but I would contact AE if you are interested.
For this card I kept it simple. White embossed and a little bakers twine in a bow. Hug your loved ones a little longer today and be grateful for everyday you have with them.
Edited to Add: I noticed today 2 other bloggers have a Boston Strong card posted today- be sure to visit my friend Jennifer’s site and a new to me blogger Debbie has a fabulous card as well!
Perfect simple. Perfect.
Awesome cards, Jenn! Love the simplicity and color scheme. Thanks for the link up. I just added you to my post! Nice to “meet” you 🙂
These are great cards! Love the red with the kraft!
