To you my friend!

 Get-attachment (9)

We all have that special friend in our lives that have shared moments, secrets, laughter, and cries with us at one point or another. Today, in addition to celebrating those friends, I wish to celebrate those that have being directly affected by the September 11th event. Despite of the many losses, let's all celebrate life!

As we recollect that tragic day, let us not forget of any and all good that came from that. There is always something good to learn from even the most horrible situations. I know friendships and love got stronger, life became that more important, and the little things in life have taken the center stage.

This card is a simple, but a to the point card. The inspiration from it came from Dostamper Stars Challenge 98, and from Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge 184. I invite you to visit the Memory of 911 Subway art Template to get your free poster. For the Stars banner I used the new Confetti Stars  punch on a 1-1/4" strip of Real Red. That was the perfect size to give me an edge on both top and bottom of the punched image. The Lucky Stars TIEF on Lost Lagoon gives a nice touch. I have used the Stippled Blossoms stamp set many times, but never in blue. And you know what? I love it! The sentiment is from Let Your Hair Down stamp set.

  4. Miriam, what a beautiful card. I love the mixture of red and blues without it being so overly in your face patriotic. It's subtle and elegant. Very nicely done. Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' On Tuesday this week!

  5. Love the embossed stars and how the blue pokes out a little from the red cardstock. Thank you for joining our sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. We love to see such great entries.
