Prayers for Paris

While I am not a writer, and will never pretend to be. Here I sit writing about the senseless tragedy that took place in Paris, France yesteray (11/13/2015).
I will be honest, sitting here in my craft room playing on the computer I saw a message from someone pop up that only said "Prayers for Paris". Many things went through my mind... great something happened to another wanna be celebrity and people are going to make a big deal about it was the first. Then I did a little research (turned on CNN) and there it was... shock, dismay and anger all at the same time.
I wanted to do something, but here I am across the pond, and other than prayers not much I could offer. So for those families, friends and coworkers off the people who lost their lives, or are battling for their lives in the hospitals now... this card is for you :
It isn't much, but it is from my heart. It won't bring your loved ones back, but hopefully it will give you a little solace knowing that someone is thinking and caring about you.

Hi there hoppers, today we are hopping with Laura's Loft, and I am happy to share with you my creation using Avery Elle's "Snow Much Fun" stamp set, WOW "HOHOHO" embossing powder and our own "Baby It's Cold" sequins. But first, we have two fantastic guest designers. 
Now that you have seen there wonderful creations... here is mine :)

 First I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the designed card base. I then stamped and cut the fun little characters from the stamp set, and colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol pens. The scarves were colored with my versamark pen and WOW "HOHOHO" embossing powder was added for that bit of color and sparkle.  Pop dots were used to give some dimension to the sledding duo. The background was colored with Peacock Feathers Distress ink. Pieced it all together using Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue as well as my ATG gun.
