parisSo much terrorism, war, and tragedy lately.  Paris is simply the most recent; Beirut, Syria, Baghdad, Cameroon…and too many more places.

A call went out for #CardsForParis. There is even someone helping to translate sentiments! They are still working on what exactly will happen with the cards.I was a Winner 613  Please join the Facebook group for updates.

My thoughts are with everyone around the globe.  I hope that we can find a way to live together, respect each other, respect nature, and respect life.

I made a set of ten different cards.  Assembly line, but each is different!


  1. Card Base:  White card stock, A2.
  2. First Layer:  2 sets of 5 different designer papers.
  3. Second Layer:  The image in the front is the same for all cards.  I created this from two different images.  Printed on white card stock.
  4. Front sentiment:  Hope or Peace; 5 each.
  5. Interior:  There is an interior sentiment.  I used four different sentiments, printed on white card stock.
  6. Envelope:  Unity Stamp – Candle inked with Memento – Tuxedo.
