  22. WOW what great blog candy!

    Amazing card.

    My favorite thing about America. Well, since my folks aren't actually native to this country(my mom & step-dad). I appreciate just how much freedom we do have here in America and even though times may be bad economically I only have to think of my family back home in the Philippines to realize that it could be worse.

    Just became a follower.

    Happy 4th of July!
