BBTB2 challenge - September 11th

Hey All!

I'm here with this weeks challenge over at the BBTB2 challenge blog. Brenda has tasked us all with making a card in memory of 9/11 or to honor and remember our service members. Its hard to believe that 9/11 happened so long ago. I'm sure you all remember exactly where you were when it happened. I was in London on vacation with my family and we were visiting Westminster Abbey when a monk approached us with the news that an airplane had hit one of the twin towers. It was amazing to be in another country and see Europe's reaction to the diseaster. The next day at the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace, they played the "Oh Say Can You See" and "Stars and Stripes Forever" in tribute. The most amazing story was when we met an elderly French doctor on the train to Paris who told us that he was there the day that the American's liberated the concentration camps....he was a Jew and had a 7 digit number tattooed on his arm.

 My project today is another simple one meant to honor and remember the heroes who laid down their lives for others. I would really encourage you to make a project for this challenge, maybe you know someone who lives to serve our country who you could give it to.
I used some digital papers and a cut from the Cricut "A Child's Year" cartridge to make this card.

~Here's to the creative journey


  1. Rebekah, I love this lil fireman image, great design, hugs

  2. Beautiful card. How interesting that you were in England when 9/11 took place. Thanks for sharing that. It would have put a whole different perspective on the moment.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful card Rebekah! I love this little fireman boy and he is just perfect for this challenge. I love the papers you used and I love the simplicity of this card. It says it all without a lot of fuss. I loved reading about you being in England when 9/11 occured and the support of another country for ours is so awesome! It brought tears to my eyes. We have so many great nations in this world, but we only hear about the bad ones. I feel there is more good in this world than evil and that one day the good will over come the evil. Thank you for sharing and making this challenge very special for me! Hugs!!!

  4. Where would we be without our soldiers and first responders? Wonderful card. Love your little fireman.

  6. Stunningly simple but oh the volumes it speaks. Fabulous design, Rebekah and your memories of the fateful day are bringing tears to my eyes. It must have been very strange to be abroad on that day, but very uplifting to see support from those across the sea. xxD
