Being Memorial Day weekend, and having lost my Dad (who was a WWII Vet), my Mom, and my brother all over the last 5 years, Memorial Day is fast becoming more significant to me each year.
And now that I live fairly close to a Military base, I am more aware than ever how many people and their families make sacrifices for our freedom.
Please let's remember that this weekend is about more than a first trip to the beach for the year, or a backyard BBQ.
Many, many thanks to our wonderful servicemen and women! May God always bless you!!
I was going to wait until Monday to post this for Memorial Day, but as I thought more about it I decided I'd rather do it sooner than later. As everyone is now well into the holiday weekend, I am hoping that there's more on their minds than just having a good time.
I have recently joined a wonderful group of paper crafters over on CPC (Christianpapercrafts) and started doing some of their challenges.
The other night, I did this one. It was a challenge by Angela, and it was to create something (with a Bible verse) that would honor Memorial Day and all the Veterans who have given their lives or put their lives at risk for out Country.
This is what I came up with
I embossed the image from SU!'s "The Free & The Brave" stamp set using Versamark and black embossing powder, then I used Prisma colored pencils to color it all in.
These wonderful patriotic brads have been sitting in a jar for a long time, just waiting to be used.
The sentiment is from SU!'s "Say It With Scriptures" set. I colored the letters with SU! markers.
The solid c/s is all SU!; the stars BG paper is from DCWV and the BG paper with the flags is from Colorbok.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I wish you a safe and blessed Memorial Day weekend!
