Hello fellow crafters!  I hope your day is going well!  I know that today is a somber day for many of us, as we remember what happened on this date in 2001.  For me, it is also a celebration of life, as my Dad's birthday was today, and my older daughter turns 21 today!  I can't believe it's been 21 years since I gave birth to my firstborn daughter!  Of course I daydreamt about this day in her early years, and wondered what she would be like at this age...and now the day has arrived!  I am super proud of her, and can't wait to take her out to celebrate with my hubby this weekend!

Thanks for letting me ramble on about my daughter!  Now I want to share the card I made for this week's Humor Me Wednesday:

With this cute card, I am celebrating Teddy Bear Day, which was on Monday.  This image is called Watermelon Butterfly BearIsn't he just so cute?  I love this guy!  I colored him up with alcohol markers, and added some white puffy paint to the rim of his hat.  I just like the look of that lately!  His wings were coated with Wink of Stella.  I used Sketch Saturday #580 for my layout:

This seems to me to be a really good sketch for showcasing an image!  :)
