BBTB2 Challenge- "Honor 911"

Today is double Design Team challenge posts for me.  
The first is FCCB - "Trains, Planes and Automobiles"  
The Second is BBTB2 - "Honor 911" 
So please check out both my posts and join us for the challenges.  

My good friend Brenda is challenging us this week at BBTB2 to create a project honoring 911.  
I made a card in honor of all the fire personal who lost there lives this terrible day.  My husband was a fireman for 33 years before retiring so firemen and women are near and dear to my heart.  If you have really good eyes you will notice I wrote 911 on the little bell with a gel marker.  

I used ACY for the little guy on his firetruck cut at 3.5 inches and the My Hero comes from Stand and Salute cut at 3 inches.  Ribbon was from my stash.  Star paper left over from baby shower goodies.  Lots of gel pen stirching and Stickles on the title.  
I hope you will join us this week for the challenge and link up to BBTB2. 
Happy Craftin
