Challenge..... Hope you all join in........

My Red, White & Blue creation
Good day everyone... and there is obviously no need to remind you that today is September 11th and is now the 9th anniversary of that fateful day that change our world forever.

To show rememberance of all who lost their lives and also those whose have been left behind I thought I would invite you all to join in a week long challenge... Yes I will leave this challenge open for 1 week and at the end of it, as a little thank you to all who join in I will be posting out a surprise gift to one lucky winner. Now the prize will remain a mystery but it has very kindly been donated to me for this challenge by 'Time To Sow' crafts.

There are no rules for your entry but if you want a theme to work with then why not try like I did and use only 'Red, Blue & White'... It does not need to deplict anything to do why the events of that day it can simply be a flower based card or anything... please just create a little something in order that we can all show just how united our world can be.
Here are some pictures just to remind us all of those fateful events.

May I just say a huge thanks in advance to all who join in and I appreciate the time and effort that you will give to creating something just for this challenge.
Now all you have to do is leave a comment here with a link to your post so we can all share in each other creations and if you could make a link back to this posting I would gratefully appreciate it.
Love 'n' hugs to one and all

This is a lovely idea my friend. Sadly I can't join in yet as in the hotel in Toronto with no craft kit except Christmas cards I was making on the plane. Neither I nor G have the Blackberry lead to download even if I took a picture stupid peeps , however I will try to get something made after Tuesday when I get back to the house in Bermuda. Meanwhile I have posted on my forum about today and am thinking of everyone concerned. xx

With so many time restrictions, I was unable to make anything for today, except many memories from that fateful day 9 years ago. I did link your blog to my post, though. I hope some of my readers will join in the challenge. Thank you for sharing this timely art and thoughtful post with us. And thank you for inspiring me to at least try to meet your challenge.

Hi Lorraine not sure if this is still running but I have a card I made yesterday and have linked it to you. This is a wonderful idea and I think we should all do more for those involved.
You can find it on this link
