*Strong and Free*

I love any day when there are no alarm clocks going off in the morning!!

The kids are lucky enough to get today and tomorrow off from school... today to mark Remembrance Day, tomorrow is a Professional Development Day.

Sadly I have a lot of things planned for the next 24 hours including a two hour round trip to pick up some stuff for Christy for her to take to Saskatchewan this weekend for a crop, getting blood work done in the morning (means I can't eat after 10 tonight, which is probably a good thing), getting some groceries and hopefully pre-bowling in preparation for my trip to see my sister in a few weeks.

In other sad news, I retired my flip flops today....  I was beginning to think that the crappy support in them was what has been causing the pain in my heels....  figure it's time to put on some socks and shoes and hopefully put the pain behind me.  We'll see if it works.

This was probably the longest I've ever gone wearing flip flops... and I loved every minute!

Anyway.... I thought a very simple but strong card would be good to share in Remembrance Day.....
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Marina Mist, Cherry Cobler, Wild Wasabi; PTI White
*Images:  Stamping Bella
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
*Tools:  Stampin' Up! border punch
*Challenges:  MTSC89; SCS ColorChallenge #279

I took two minutes of silence at 11 this morning to remember all who have come before me, who have sacrificed so much to give me the freedom I cherish... I hope you did too!

Beautiful card, so CAS, love it. Sorry about your flip flops and your back, guess it is a sign to put on the socks and shoes. Have a great weekend.
