A to Z April Challenge – X Plus S and T


Today is Day  X of the April A to Z Challenge. There are well over a thousand people  taking part. Be sure to check out the website.

My theme is art quote cards by famous people. The cards are 4″ by 4 1/2″,usually  with a gelli print background, a used stamp of the person and a quote by them. It is an ongoing project.

For today’s letter, I chose “X-Men” and a quote from storm which really has relevance to many parts of the world today. I shortened the quote so it would fit. Here is the full quote:

We live in an age of darkness: a world full of fear, hate and intolerance.

But in every age, there are those who fight against it.

I am working to finish this set of cards. Here are the  S and T cards.

S is for Harriet Beecher Stowe

“Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (1811 – 1896) was an American abolitionist and author. Her novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin was a depiction of life for African Americans under slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play.” Wikipedia

T is for Sojourner Truth – truer words were never spoken – and ones that need to be heard by all!

“Sojourner Truth was an African-American abolitionist and women’s rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, Ulster County, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826.” Wikipedia
