Sparkle of the Season - Thankful for You

The Sparkle of the Season bundle is my favorite new bundle, at least for now.  I debated if I really needed this bundle, and I'm so happy that I decided to purchase it.  The card I'm sharing today is a Fall/Thanksgiving card layout.  In the coming days, I'll be showing you other uses for the versatile bundle for Halloween, Christmas and everything in between.

Sparkle of the Season

I started off with a Very Vanilla card base and added a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock that was embossed with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  I stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock with Sahara Sand and added a die cut wreath using the Brushed Metallic Specialty Paper.  The greeting is heat embossed with copper embossing powder and then cropped with the Basic Borders dies.

United We Stand - A Time to Remember

9-11 Tribute Vinyl Decal Never Forget September 11th Sticker Car & Truck  Decals & Stickers Auto Parts & Accessories

Though it still seems like yesterday to many, this year we commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the four deadly attacks that claimed the lives of 2996 Americans on September 11, 2001.

Almost 3000 people died in what many call the largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil, including 343 firefighters, 72 law enforcement officers, and 55 military personnel.

Now 20 years later, the World Trade Center has since been rebuilt as a single tower named "One World Trade Center" — commonly known as "Freedom Tower" — alongside the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, located where the original World Trade Center once stood.

Twenty years ago, the people of this great nation stood together during a time of tragedy and loss.  My hope is as we reflect on what happened twenty years ago, that we again, rise to the current challenges and stand as a nation united.
