What is Happening????

     I can't believe some of the things that i'm experiencing right now.  The Little Private School that both of my children went to is Closing its doors for the elementary age kids and My mom fell and broke her Humorous. No, it's not even funny!!!!! What a Sunday i had! My son is going to be heart broken. He still had one year at Peace before he would move onto Middle School and now he won't get to finish there. I kinda had a bad vibe about all of this, but now reality has really set in and yes i'm angry.  I did pray though, before the decision meeting, that the Lord allow whatever that was best for my son to happen and obviously this was his decision. Thanks for allowing me to vent.

    Anyway, I did finish another card for today.  This is my last Patriotic, Red,white and Blue card for The Outlawz PAM group Challenges for their 2000 party. I used these awesome diecuts again from K & Company and added stickles glitter glue along the edges. I found this pleated ribbon on clearance at Joanns the other day, used a Cuttlebug star embossing folder and addes a couple white star brads to the upper corners. That was it!

On to your card- great and wonderfully made patriotic card! Very nice job. Thank you for entering Fat Pages and ATC's Card with Attitude. Hoping to see more of your work.
