Good World

Yesterday we woke to the sad news that a plane had been shot down over eastern Ukraine killing all 298 passengers on board. There are 28 Australians who will never come home to their families. And 100 of the passengers were Delegates of an HIV Conference being held in Melbourne this weekend including Conference Speakers.

So as a mark of respect to all the families around the world that have lost loved ones this week and to remind ourselves that there is more good in the world than evil I made this card:

And it is a CASE of a lovely card by Penny Tokens that she entered in the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge last week. I loved how she used the world stamp from The Open Sea and so while I kept the basics of the card, I changed the greeting onto Squares and used just one circle behind the world.
The fun arrow is also topped with one of the long retired Rhinestone brads with the legs removed - such and instant bling effect :-)

Card stock: Midnight Muse, Real Red, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Maritime
Ink: Midnight Muse, Real Red
Stamps: The Open Sea, Perfect Pennants
Accessories: Big Shot, Square and Circle Framelits, Rhinestone Brads ( Retired), Stitched Satin Ribbon (Retired)

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today - and I hope wherever you are in the world today you may have a wonderfully good day and remember to hug those you love.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. What a meaningful post Jan. We are so sad for all the families and friends who have lost love ones in such a senseless act of aggression. We lost one Canadian. An accomplished young man who was on his way to a well deserved and longed for holiday in Bali. The loss to the world in terms of the HIV/Aids Conference attendees and world leaders in research for this dreadful disease is unfathomable at this point. I love that you used your card as a tribute and I really like the changes you made to it. Thanks for the acknowledgement Jan.

    1. Thank you so much Penny! I am so glad you like my version of your card. And yes, such a tragic event affecting so many people around the world including 28 Australian families. It is impossible to imagine the pain all families of the victims are experiencing - it is hard enough to lose those we love in normal circumstances let alone these dreadful ones.
