9-11 Blog Hop and GIVEAWAYS ☺

On this day, nine years ago, the world changed. The shameful actions of a few forever altered the lives of so many. I wasn't alive to remember where I was when JFK was assassinated, but I sure remember where I was on September 11, 2001. My husband and I were stationed in Guam, and I remember being terrified that we were such an easy target in the middle of the ocean. I mean, if they were brazen enough to attack downtown NYC, why not our little island of Guam?! But, thankfully, that did not happen. We were lucky. So many others were not. To those who lost loved ones that day, bless you and your families. Now, in a somewhat awkward segway, on with the hop we go!
For my first card, I made a "bomb pop". I used the Simply Charmed cricut cartridge and the Princess Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps for the sweet little face. The ADORABLE sentiment is from the Simply Everything stamp set by Pink By Design. That set ROCKS!!!!

For my next card, I used the Stand and Salute cricut cartridge. I actually got the idea for this card when my husband came home from the ship and plopped his boots in the middle of the floor! LOL Ahh, men! ☺ I adore this sentiment from the Rock On stamp set by Pink By Design.

For my last card, I used the Boys Will Be Boys cricut cartridge. I know this doesn't look "traditionally manly", but I LIKE IT! ☺ Well, I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Now, onto some fun GIVEAWAYS!!!!

The sponsor for this hop is Craft-E-Corner and they are donating a Cricut A-Z dvd to one lucky hopper AND a 10% off coupon code to ALL hoppers! For all the details on this, hop over to Sarah's {Pink Cricut} Blog.

I will be choosing one lucky hopper to receive a $25 gift certificate to the PinkByDesign store!!! Cool, huh?! You can pick out which set/sets you would like!!! I have to say I LOVE them all!!!! 

Now, keep on hoppin' to see what the other talented bloggers have for you!

  87. Nikki--
    First off, I want to thank your husband for serving our country! My daddy retired from the Navy on August 1, 1973, after serving for 31 years (4 months and 2 days as he would remind us!) He was ALMOST retired as long as he served! He was a Diver and then got into EOD, combining both loves into one long career! He was a veteran of WWII, Korea & Viet Nam. Very proud of my daddy.

    Secondly, I just *HAVE* to say this because if I didn't, I just wouldn't be *ME*...GO ARMY, BEAT NAVY!!! ;-) My husband is also retired...Army! So I just *HAVE* to say that!! ;-)

    Thanks for sharing your creations! They are just ALL so cute!
