This is a card I made last night for the MFT Challenge, we were to use the Howdy set with a Red, White and Blue theme. I used some Rusty Pickle paper that I bought over 3 years ago with a scrapbook page in mind from when I was a speaker at the placing of the wreath at the Veteran's Cemetary at home in Pendleton,OR. The paisly is from Flair...

On this Inauguration day I think this card is fitting. I am a strong believer in the American Constitution, I support Veterans, and love my Country. I am praying that President Obama can carry us through these hard times, I dont expect a miracle wand to wave over our Country but I am hoping his call to ALL Americans to stand up, be proud and support each other is taken to heart. I must confess I was not an Obama supporter, I have grave fears that he will be assassinated by lunatics hoping to further their cause. I'm fearful that if this happens we will be in a Civil War. I am fearful that the Country that I love will be torn apart and all that I love will disappear. I pray that this does not happen. I pray nightly that this doesn't happen.

I was misty eyed during the inauguration and his speech.
