Memorial Day


As we all enjoy our long weekend, let us not forget what this Holiday is for... remembering those who serve, protect and give their life for our country. I did not have any Patriotic sets to make a card to honor these solidiers. However, I had this one in my stash of swaps from convention last August. One of the best things about being a demo is swaps! I thought this one truly represented Memorial Day well.
It was done by Debbie Freels, I like her use of spotlighting technique she did on this card too.
Don't forget that you can send cards to the troops through organizations such as cards for heros, which is having a blog hop this weekend and a million thanks. I have done this with two brownie troops and it such a worthwhile experience. I usually do take my old swaps and make them into cards for Ronald McDonald House or send to the troops.

Wow, wow, wow! Love the use of the spotlighting here and that it's a square which seems to keep it masculine.

This is a great use for this set. Perfect card to highlight today , even if you didn't make it. trust me when I say service members appreciate it.

Kathy, I just was messing around on Google to see what the Blog function was thinking about convention and seeing where my name came on the web and found my card:-) It was pretty cool to see my card up on your blog! Thanks for the credit. I also enjoyed reading the comments. I don't have a blog and Ive laid low the last two years as I have been working on my postmasters and am going to convention for my ten year and to get rebooted so to speak so it was fun to see this. Nice blog by the way!!!!
