    20 years and I will ALWAYS remember this day.

    20 Years and I will.. Yes, I will always remember where I was and how horrifying it all was. My flag has been up ever since. I feel that is the least I can do to show support for not only first responders, the military, their families and those that made the ULTIMATE sacrifice for me! September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten by me or those that I love. I will talk of it for the rest of my life. That is how I can honor all 2,977 lives. Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty! May God Bless The USA.

    October Girl’s Night On the first Friday of each month, you can come and make some birthday cards. October Girl’s Night was no exception. We crafted, talked and laughed too!

I think the technique that I added kept the ladies on their toes. The Country Home stamp set has the beautiful water jug. But where in the heck did I get that sentiment?? Well, I made it. You might want the Stamparatus…
