Feeling Sentimental!

September 11, 2013

So many memories----praying for those who lost their lives and for their families that were forever changed on this tragic day!  I am very PROUD to be an American!!

Since I am very nostalgic today, I wanted to use the stamp set, "Feeling Sentimental".  It is one of my all time favorites.  It makes me smile each time I use it.  It brings back memories of a simpler time.
I loved the color combination in The Paper Players challenge this week, so here is my take on it.  ENJOY!  Hope it makes you feel happy, too!       

 My photo makes it very difficult to read the greeting--Sorry!  It says, "To someone who makes others so happy!"
