    Found Art, Dec 19 2006: CHERISH

    For Found Art Tuesday I made this card  (the size is the same as one of the gift cards you see everywhere this time of year) I think this is a good way of confronting someone with the question of what are the important things in our lives this time of year. I've always been glad that the US coins and bills have the legend "In God we Trust" and "Liberty" this is something the country holds dear and cherish, so in this card I used a 10 cent coin with the word "Liberty" the cross representing the spiritual influence in our lives and the flowers representing life. The little bear with the coin is representing the concept of money giving us  a sense of security, not that you would cuddle a $20 bill, but really, doesn't earning money give us a feeling of accomplishment and even liberty? (or freedom??)

    I am leaving this card today in a museum I'll be taking my son and daughter here in Monterrey. Pictures to follow!

    Cherish is wonderful. It does promote some thought. I hope all is well. I am still very busy. Kids got off from school today and I still have not send out my cards for the holiday!

    Oh well..
