Friday

Escapade


Escapade

Escapade: a usually adventurous action that runs counter to approved or conventional conduct.

Today, October 15, is Blog Action Day. An annual event that unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action. This year's topic is water.

About 70% of the earth's surface is covered with water and most of it is the ocean. Like many of you, I am fortunate to have access to clean water. I showered this morning with clean running water. I filled my bottle today with clean water from the tap. For that, I am grateful. 

But for almost a billion people in poor developing countries, safe drinking water remains elusive. That means that 1 in 8 of us are being subject to preventable disease and death for something that most of us take for granted.

Let us take pause today to appreciate water by using it sparingly and thoughtfully..:)

I wish you a fabulous weekend and leave you with my card for Get Sketchy.... Patterned paper is from Prima. Alphas are from American Crafts. And a little flashback circa April 2009 (aka Amy Tsuruta's Flashback 3.0)...


This was my first challenge card that made Top 5 at Card Patterns.

P/s: Thank you so much for your comments on my last post Today is a gift. I'm truly humbled by your kind words. :)

totally with you....when I was living in Spore... I seems not to care about using water... but over here in Melbourne... we have water restriction stage 3... so we got be careful not to waste!... but I'm not complaining about that..as at least the tap is safe for drinking!!...

Both cards are simply beautiful... your first challenge card is REAL gorgeous...

LOVE this card! Also, I can really appreciate what you say about the water... I think we take those kinds of things for granted too easily... It's good to be reminded of just how luck we are... :)
