9-11 post

I have a very difficult time making things and posting things on this date. On 9-11 I lived in New Jersey, and was slated to go into New York City to where the terrorist attacks were. By some strange miracle, I decided at the last minute that I should not go. So I didn't...

Fast forwarding to the present, I decided to create a more cheerful card using Bugaboo Stamps Bumpkins Girl. To take my mind off of the past, I used the current Stella Sketch at Catch the Bug, and used bright, happy colors for my card below. I hope you like my card.
