Wednesday, July 27


The following days are important for each and every person living in America.  The US Government will make a decision soon on how the national debt is going to be handled.  For months up to these past few days, the members of the Congress and the President have been bumping heads in figuring out the best step to take.  I don't understand the specifics that well, but I do know that if a bill is not at a certain period, the government will not function in a sense, and everything will most likely be at a standstill as bills won't get paid, constructions will be stopped, etc.  Here in Michigan, ongoing improvements in several airports were already halted and workers were sent home on Monday alone.  I really hope that whatever the decision will be, is that it's for the best.  And that everybody is ready to make a sacrifice in one way or another, and no longer complain about what they will lose or won't get.  If we keep thinking only of ourselves, this country will fall.  But together, we can do something great.

The current situation inspired me to make this card:

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Stampin' Up, DCWV, @theoffice, leftovers
ink:  Tsukineko
tools:  Spellbinders, Martha Stewart corner punch
embellishments:  rhinestones
adhesive:  Scotch, Glossy Inkssentials, mounting tape

I still had stamped circles leftover from a similar project last week called Best Friend Ever.  And since I used all Unity stamps in this card, it's also going to be another entry for their challenge this month called "Circles, Circles, Circles..."

'Til next blog!
