wishes... and reminder...

This is a day of remembrance for those of us in the US. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing on this day in 2001. I was getting ready to go home from work because I was not feeling well... being 8 months along kinda helped... I had just stepped up to the UPC office at my job and the radio station in the store had just changed and was talking about the planes. I was in disbelief and of course knowing I was only a few hours from New York. I called my husband and found that the base had been shut down and he was on his way home and was going to pick up my son from preschool. We were moving into our new home because we had just been stationed in CT. We had no TV and no radio so we had to listen to everything on the car radio. It wasn't until a week latter my parents had sent up a VHS tape that we actually got to see the news. Yes we had seen pictures but video put a whole new perspective on 9/11 for us. I hope everyone takes sometime to reflect on how changed the world has become today.


Today I also broke out my GinaK stamps for a cause set Make a Wish. I saw two challenges on Split Coast Stampers I wanted to try. So I combine them with this stamp set. One challenge was the color challenge for this week and the other was the sketch challenge from last week. This is what I came up with...



Supplies for this card can be found HERE

Also would like to mention GinaK is having a great sale over on her website... HERE And she is giving 10% of all her sales today to the September 11, 2001 Children's fund. I love that she gives so much.
