Hi blog friends!!!

Christmas is getting closer and the days are filling up with exciting moments and events. 

It's What If? Wednesday at Repeat Impressions again and guess what?????  Wendy has a new and fun sketch for us to play with.  I hope you'll find some time from all the hustle and bustle to come on over to The House That Stamps Built and play along with us.  We'll be waiting to see what you create.  Link on over and get the details on how to WIN $25.00 worth of awesome RI stamps (of your choice). 

Here's this week's sketch

Here's my card
My inspiration for this card came on Sunday, December 7  the 72nd anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  My father was a Pearl Harbor survivor.  He was in the Army Air Corp (later becoming the Air Force) and was one of those who were assigned the morbid task of "collecting the dead" from the ocean after the attack.  He was barely 20 years old.  That's mostly all I know....all he shared about that day.  For whatever reason, those hours stayed within him for over 50 years until his death in 1994.  I have no one in mind for this card, its one of those that came from "within" and before I knew it, it was done.  
Stamps I used for this card are RI #2704-H and RI #5140-C
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Love the white and kraft together. The embossing adds wonderful texture. Very, very pretty card.
