MCCR Card Creating Tuesday

Today's Theme is make a 3D Card .... So when I sat down to make my card  It clicked that it was going to be posted  on  9/11 .....so I had to do something to show my support to family and friends , who to this day still live with the inpact of that morning that forever changed our world..... On 9/11/01  I was up because my husband just left to work and my 4 month old baby Justin needed to be feed ....I turned on the tv (today show) and watched everything live and in shock the rest of the day ....

 A2 size card .... Ribbon and Rosettes cut at 1"x 6 and Stand and Salute cut at 4" for the words.

I then cut the statue at 4" and used Tim Holtz disress ink to get the effect on her. I cut a dog tag on my gyspy to fit and cut the phrase 3" from Stand and Salute....

Today I'm Thankful for my Brother in Law Tom who is in  Kabul Afghanistan at Bagram Air Base  and pray for his safe return.... and to my dear friend Gabby I'm sending her hugs and prayers today as I have seen over the years all the pain from that day.

Thanks for letting me share my feelings and deep thoughts with you and may today bring peace to the world.

please see what the other ladies made today to share with you at My Cricut Craft Room
