Happy President's Day

It's President's Day and we had the day off! It's great having extra long weekends. This card is in honor of President's Day. Most times, people acknowledge past presidents who are deceased, but I decided to highlight our current president because it's historical and also because Mac took this photo. Doesn't it look like Mr. President is looking at Mac? Well...he is! So, I decided to create a card with the photo to capture the moment. In this photo, President Obama is conversing with Virginia's Governor, Tim Kaine.

This card is a very different style for me. I'm not sure if I like it, but it's a photo card and I don't make them often, so maybe that's why. I think there are too many bling! LOL

Anyway, enjoy your day (what's left of it). I'm off to get a hair cut! YES! I love hair cuts! You'll have to wait and see what I change this time...always something bold...something new!
