Inauguration Day!

I have been glued to the TV all morning. Today is truly an historical day! I'm so proud to be an American today! My prayers go up for a peaceful transfer of power. I pray that Barack Obama is blessed with wisdom, clarity and the ability to unite our country. There are so many things going on with the economy and with the wars and injustices that are ocurring even as I type this. I know that no one person can right things overnight. I just hope that today, and the change it brings, is the first step towards a more peaceful world.

Also, as a Delawarean, I'm just so excited to see Joe and Jill Biden standing alongside the Obamas. Delaware is a VERY small place. We go to the same church and I've met him on several other ocassions. It's so exciting to know that 'Delaware's Joe' is going to play such a crucial role in the new administration. Many prayers are headed his way, too.

OK, enough political stuff...Today is my day on the MMM blog. As you know, I'm working on Lisa Pace's Cupid's Workshop. This cute little bird was our first project. I LOVE how it turned out.



You can see what I did with this cute little guy by checking out the blog here.

Have you seen the new Webster's releases? They are absolutely stunning! My favorite lines so far, for sure. Terri Hayes has the photos posted on her blog. Just leave a comment on her blog here for a chance to win one of the new collections!

Finally, here is my card that I made with Kazan's sketch for 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I used a Prima lollipop flower, the packaging it came on, and some of my awesome new ribbon from M&J Trimming. This is also my Cardalicious card for the week. The challenge was to use a circle, a flwer and some bling. The flower kind of acts like the circle, too. I figured the little circles in the scalloped border count, too.




Check out the site for amazing DT inspiration, too!

Well, that's it for now. I have to get back to the TV!
Have a great day~Anabelle
