Hello Everyone!  It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since the 9/11 attacks.  I can remember so vividly that day as if it were yesterday.  Although I was not there that day, it has affected me as well as others that I know.  Even though I was already aware of how fragile life is and how it can change in an instant the events of 9/11 reminded me to appreciate every single moment with my  loved ones and live every day to the fullest.  Sometimes with all of the stresses of daily life I forget to do just that.  My heart goes out to all of the survivors, family and friends of those who perished in the 9/11 attacks.

In other news, I made a boo boo today!  I didn't realize that today was Grandparent's Day until just about an hour ago.  So, I whipped up this card and must say, I like how it turned out.  I didn't have any Grandparent stamps so I made my own letters using a manila tag and some Papertrey Ink alphabet stamps.  Just goes to show you that sometimes something cute can be done FAST!!  Hope you like it!

 I have been doing faux stitching a lot lately, I even made a little accent on the envelope for some pizazz!

Thank you for stopping by, please stop by tomorrow for a fun card I made for a challenge.
