I chose to use my harvest moon for a theme more on the serious side. When September arrives, we all think about school--whether we ourselves are returning to school or sending off our children. While, in most cases, this is a very happy and exciting time of year, a very serious problem when school reopens (although not limited to the school calendar) is one of bullying. It is so much more on my heart this year as someone I love is being bullied. I hope each of you reading this will take the time to talk to the children in your lives about bullying and what they can do to help someone who is being bullied.
For my postcard, I chose an image of a harvest moon from the free online Google images. I printed it onto glossy photo paper so that the moon would be shiny, then punched it out and adhered it to black cardstock cut to 4" x 6". I stamped the Stampotique image "Little Friends" directly onto the moon. The quote I used is one by Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919):
With every deed
You are sowing a seed,
Though the harvest
You may not see.
Come play! You have until Saturday to join in the fun. You are free to interpret the Harvest Moon theme any way you like as long as it uses a 4" x 6" (postcard size) format. Details here.
Thanks for stopping by today and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both are appreciated!
