We are the World....


This is my second post today.  If you want to see my earlier post about birthdays...particularly mine...(ha!)...click here.
I have to tell you that I am totally feeling the peace, love and happiness today!  I have been showered with love from lots of friends, family and co-workers.  I am lucky to know so many wonderful people and have them in my life!  That includes all of you out there who leave sweet and encouraging comments on my blog, they mean so much to me, so thank you!

That is what this next card is all about.  It is inspired by this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  Check out this brilliant inspiration photo!  I am so very happy to see things like crayons coming out with a more multicultural focus.  Every child needs to be able to envision themselves in their dreams and this is a first step!  Yes, I am getting all serious on you, but it is true....we are all people. 

When I first saw the picture the song "We are the World" popped into my head.  It then made me think of a picture of a globe with all types of children from different cultures and ethdnicities and with different abilities, etc. surrounding it and holding hands.  So that is what I went with.  Now I don't have any little PS kiddos that were the right size, so I used the cute little aliens from the Space Cadet set.  Then, I  used the sentiment from Vegtastic, which says PEAS, love, happiness and changed the word to PEACE using other letters from other PS sentiments.  I finished it off with twine and hearts.  I am super happy with how it turned out, it really catches the feeling I was going for and makes me smile.

Hoping to get a little stamp time in before more birthday festivities begin (currently home alone- a rarity) sooooooo..... thanks for stopping!  Wishing you peace, love and happiness!

How cute is that?!!! Ha love the colors and I feel sometimes, I am afraid, that our kiddos are aliens. --oh yours is not old enough yet... LOL
But I love all life forms (Louder LOL)!!!

I really love how you looked at the picture and thought about the flesh tones as a direction for your card.... the aliens spanned around the world is a great interpretation of the message :0) Thanks so much for playing along with us at PS Sparks this week.
