Greeting Farm Friday - Never Forget...

So, as I said yesterday, once I realized what today was, I knew I wanted to make a special card honoring those heros from that day 9/11 8 years ago. Of course, we will never forget the horror of that day or the heros that emerged from the smoke. All my thoughts and prayers are with those that lost loved ones that day and those that were there helping, being called to something beyond themselves.

I knew that these two Ians - Rescue & Hero - from TGF were perfect for what I wanted to create. Also, I followed the Red, White & Blue challenge from Cupcake Craft Challenges this week. Everything came together nicely and I love the result. You can also see some paper from Dirty Rodeo - also from TGF. The images were colored with copics & glitter pens - as well as with some paper piecing. Coloring Hero Ian's entire outfit is still a little daunting as I don't feel I have the exact colors I want quite yet. One of these days I will attempt it. LOL

I hope you like!!!

Awesome job Carisa!!! I love the coloring, these two look so heroic side by side. Great minds think alike...I am doing a blog giveaway with Rescue Ian and Angel Anya in honor of today. I didn't see Hero Ian in the store any more. It's a good thing I have him forever. ;)
Happy Friday to you!
