Friendship

My goodness I am finding this a very hard post to write. Some of you will know that I am a Londoner through and through and some of you will have been following the riots and looting that have been occurring across my city, that I love, and is even spreading through other major cities in England. I am just gutted, I don’t understand how people can be so disconnected to the society that they live in that they feel they can do this to themselves and others just so that they can take their fill of pointless merchandise. What a piece of art the human is.

This is not a political blog, it is a blog about art and craft and making things so I shall show today’s make in a hope of lightening hearts and to carry on.

It is Tuesday so it is my Make The Day Special DT make. I’ve used stamps from the Unity Bold Insight and the sentiment is from Unity Adventures In Happiness.

The background has been coloured with ZIG Kurecolor Refill Ink from Kuretake.

Hope you have a day full of Friendship.

Kim

    I agree with you, I don't understand how people can do that and to their own home.

    Your card is beautiful and inspiring. It's important to carry on and make lovely things to outshine the ugliness that's happening.

    Here's to friendship and spreading beauty in our world.

    Your card is beautiful Kim – not just to look at but the thought behind it too.

    You know, you've written what I've been trying to make sense of all day. I'm a Londoner too, although I don't live there anymore, and it saddens me to see all this started so close to where I lived.

    I think this is a beautiful card. Very arty and elegant. xxx

    In Holland watching the news in shock and shame. It is pure rebellion and anarchy – and a tragedy for London and the country. Yet I can still appreciate your bright and wonderful colours so big big thanks for sharing some hope and vibrancy!

    I am so sorry that London is experiencing this needless trauma. The rest of the world knows that the culprits are not representative of the real London or the rest of your lovely country.

    Love your friendship piece…this is true art from the heart 🙂
    I'm originally from London and I can't comprehend how the mindless thugs think their behaviour is acceptable …So sad!

    What a beautiful card. Even in the midst of such tragic events you have created something so lovely. Peace and Prayers to your family and city.

    we all choose our politics, and sadly some people choose anarchy,

    keep safe,
