Broken crayons

I think at the moment we are all feeling a little broken - worry about what is going on in the world, here in the UK worry about the future of our country and who will be leading us into it, even worry about what is happening to the weather - and it's worth remembering that most of us can still get on with our lives and make the most of them, whatever  part of the bigger picture we find ourselves in.

This sentiment, from the Dylusions stamp set "How about never" is perfect for a "cheer up" card to somebody feeling a little blue. Not for somebody going through a major life crisis or suffering from serious depression, it is too frivolous for that, but for the postal equivalent of sending a hug.

The "crayons" are just 1cm strips of coloured card, "broken" in random places by chopping them with deckle edged scissors (ably assisted by my granddaughters).
