My daughter was getting ready for work this morning, and I was listening to the news...I usually like to catch the weather even though they can be 60% wrong and never worry about losing their job.  I heard a local story that this morning a 30 year old Mother stabbed her 6 year old daughter and she was taken to a local hospital for surgery and the Mother had self inflicted stab wounds.    Now I hope that poor girl doesn't have to tell what she did on her summer vacation.  As parents we all have stress, but that woman needs some serious help. I can't imagine how much therapy that child is going to need.

My first card is using this week's Mojo sketch and Anniversary color scheme.  I used a TLC, Create sentiment for this.  My second card is for the Kenny K Sun, Sea and Sand Challenge.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create and can be found here.  And my third card is for Sweet Stop using a sentiment that I just love from  TLC, Create called "Be Different".

Lisa Lynn, let's hope that this child gets lots of counseling! And that she is placed with some loving people.
You've been really busy again, haven't you? :^) Great use of the TLC sentiments in your pretty cards! :^)

Oh Lisa, I absolutely love your choice of colour here. Orange is such a rich, vibrant, summery colour and it just makes you smile when you see it. Great choice of image. Thanks for joining us over at the Kenny K Krafty Krew Challenge this week, good luck and I hope we will be seeing more of your super work in the future.
Take Care
