Sweet Pea in Blue

Good Morning! I have been in a blue mood lately--not sad, I just keep finding myself reaching for my blue Copics, blue paints and blue papers! I went to Jo-Ann's a couple of weeks ago and they had paper on sale and after I got home I realized that almost every sheet I bought had a lot of blue in it. My card today uses an image from Sweet Pea Stamps and was colored with Copics. I added some ribbon that is held together with the pearl brad. 


Today is election day. I am not going to try and convince you to vote one way or the other, I just want to encourage you to vote. Vote for the candidate that most reflects what is important to you. I will be going to vote when I get off this afternoon. I never vote early, I like going out on election day for some reason. Since Kip and I have been married we always go together to vote and I kind of like that. I hope everyone that is able is voting today. I keep reading that "this is the most important election of our generation". I think they are all important and every vote counts and that it is important to vote in every election, not just the big ones. I really don't understand why so many take this for granted, especially my female friends. So many women fought so hard to give us this right that I just can't take it for granted. Do you know what I think is even cooler than Kip and I going together to vote? That we can go to the polls, cast two separate votes and even vote for different candidates (which does happen) and both of our votes are counted.

I have a voice and I will be exercising my right to vote.
