The Oath as Witnessed By My Dad

I watched the Inauguration with my father who is 92 years old. He said "I never thought I'd live to see this day. I remember when I could go in a store to buy a hat but I could not try it on. I remember when there were whites only drinking fountains and now...". We both fell silent as the oath was administered. I too never thought I'd live to see this day but I did and what a day it is. I shall never forget it. It is a dream come true. QP

I'm Proud To Be An American

Long Time

Its been a couple of months since I posted anything but its not because I wasn't creating. I just didn't feel like writing. I was just going to post pictures but wanted to wait till the writing muse returned. Here are the christmas cards I sent for Christmas 2008. I used my Pazzles Inspiration to cut out the angel from Stardream paper and to cut the window in the other card

I made only a few of this last card because it was difficult to make 
but the end result was worth the effort.
I should have used the Inspiration to cut this semicircle top on this card but instead I used the Wizard and the Cuttlebug. What made it difficult was that you had to use the embossing rubber to cover a portion of the die so it didn't cut the whole die. 
Happy Creating in 2009,
