Today is a very special day for my family. After fifteen years enjoying the 4th of July celebrations, this is the first year will be doing it as American citizens! Our US journey began as a one, maybe two, year assignment for my husband in October 1999 and took on a few twists and turns we never anticipated.
There were so many factors that went into the decision to apply for citizenship, but the biggest surprise was how quickly things happened. I had a little heart attack when we received notice that our Naturalization Oath Ceremony was June 25, just two days before we were traveling to Canada for a wedding. Thankfully, we live near a State Department Passport Agency, who were able to expedite our new passports in 24 hours, allowing us to make the trip.
A few different challenges are combined to help create this card.
I pulled out PTI and MFT dies, along with a Paper Studio embossing folder and glitter paper to make the card. Does anyone out there recognize the Rummage magnetic stamp from Making Memories? This is one set that always makes it through any purges in my craft room.
Once again, my Wink of Stella came out and highlights the "happy" and "4" with a little glitter.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy 4th of July to all my American family & friends!
