Hello my crafty friends! Hope you all had a great Veteran's Day. I enjoyed it with my husband, who is a Veteran, and my daughter. We visited some friends,I talked for a while with my dear friend Pia, we went to Applebee's for lunch and after that we went to the movies, we enjoyed "Legend of the Guardians", a really good movie. After that, a little shopping at Michael's and went back home. It was a great family day!!

On a personal note, I would appreciate if you could pray for my aunt, who is fighting pancreas and stomach cancer. According to the doctors, it's not much to do. She is at her house, and she is just living her last days. My heart is broken and I wish I could be there with my family. Thanks so much.


  1. Very pretty! Love the layered flower/button embellies.

  2. Lovely Card. I will certainly pray for your aunt and you and the rest of the family. I hope her last days are as comfortable as possible
    Big hugs

  3. I love these block stamps! So many possibilities - your design is gorgeous.
