God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

Hi all found a little time to play before the Ohio State game.  Here is what I came up with.

The roses are red in real life I took this after dark I'll try to get some better photos tomorrow if I get home early enough.  The roses are sprayed with my home made glimmer mist.  The stamps are all magnolia and colored with Copics.  The paper is mostly Tim Holtz and the happy birthday stamp is Close to my Heart.

This is a very clever card and I love rich colors. Hey - they are sitting on stamps and license plates -- all the places these pirates have been?
Very nice card!
