Proud to be....

For my American friends - you don't need me to tell you it's the day most of us have been waiting to be over. Won't you be glad when the airwaves are silent and no one is shouting at us about the "other guy?" I hate to wish a day away but I also hate the bitterness and animosity that has been brewing for the last 18 plus months. I just pray we heal and move on and work to solve some of the grave problems we face in this country. In the meantime... get out and vote!

So, on this election day, I bring you an old to me, new to my blog card! I made it last summer for the Paper Craft Gallery Idol competition but realized, it's never been posted here! I think it's kind of appropriate today -- don't you think?

The small star is a stamp from Impression Obsession, the larger stars are actually die cuts that my friend Phyl cut out for me with her handy dandy Cricut! The little saying was from a Studio G set that my bud Janine gave me. papers are unknown! Can't remember -- it was too long ago! LOL!

Before I go... Have you all heard of... It's an online community created by paper crafters FOR paper crafters! Membership has exploded the last few days and more are joining every hour! There are discussion groups, places to upload cards and there is even a group for Flourishes (one of my fave stamping companies). Click HERE to join and while you're there, check out the Flourishes page!

That's it for now my friends! Until tomorrow!

Beautiful card (may have to case).
I hear you on the Election. Worse here in WA state because we have the same 2 canidates running for Gov. that ran last time in a very close & heated race all over again.

Fabulous patriotic card! Your election process is very long, I can understand the desire to get back to normal...even I miss the normal TV programming and more random issues to discuss!!

Yes, I'm glad we're moving on now. Thank goodness we live in a country where this process can take place. You've chosen a wonderful card to commemorate the day!

Not gonna lie, I was a little sad when the polls came in. I hope our country can move in a good direction and try to come together.
