Hope for the Fighters, Peace for the Survivors and Prayers for the Taken

This adorable little puppy digi was a freebie sent to me by
 Sandi and Anne at 


I am making myself use my new
 Spectum Noir markers, 
even though I only have a "basic set" and
 not many colors 
 I really like them, but have 
 used markers until I bought this set , so
 it is quite a learning experience for me.

I heat embossed the "heart" in the center of the candy with some 
Recollections Sparkle Embossing Glitz
and added the
with some white Liquid Pearls from Ranger

I planned on doing the
 theme with this digi and 
something kept coming into my mind to use it as a 
"red ribbon" 
card, instead.
I listen to those "feelings" now.....

  I had these little "Hope" charms that I found awhile ago and had never used one - great timing.

The sentiment I read somewhere on line 
(actually I think I read this sentiment and
 that's how the inspiration came to me for the card), 
used my word program and printed it out on white cardstock.

The ribbon is
 - just got it this week when a neighbor was so kind as to let me
 ride along with her to Michael's. 
 I was really wishing I had purchased a few more colors after I used it.  

Notice I liked it so much I even made a collar for the little puppy :)
