CASology #167 and Hop to Stop Domestic Violeonce

I'm off to see my month old great-grandbaby this weekend so I'm posting the last two cards I have finished together.  The cue word for CASology is
Doesn't that sound like fun?  The sky's the limit with that word.
I printed the sentiment on my computer to go with the little goat from MFT colored with Zigs.  You can see he's die cut and layered up.  That's to cover a mistake in the original coloring.  I know I didn't have to tell you that but sometimes it helps to know that mistakes can be corrected.  The inside sentiment says"You can't be 50!"  This will be going to my daughter-in-law next month.

There's a Hop to Stop Domestic Violence going around, hosted by Becca Cruger, and I wanted to participate. Tuesday I went to a church women's dinner and program and one of the speakers was from RAVE which stands for Relief After Violent Encounter.  The director gave a lot of disturbing facts about domestic violence and told of the shelter they run.  We took up a collection of health and beauty aids for the women and children they house.

In honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness month, we are to include purple on our card.
Purple foil makes up the upper layer of the PTI Butterfly with purple vellum underneath.  The words are cut in silver and two layers of cs.  Here's a side view.
Have a great weekend every one.  I'm sure I will.
