Memorial Honor ~ PDC133

Our family takes the time, often, to remember and honor those who have served our country through military sacrifice.  We are blessed to live in the United States of America and know that our freedom comes at a high price.  Today our family will remember those who served and especially those who gave their lives, along with the loved ones who said goodbye to them.   I'm proud to have a father, and 2 grandfathers who fought for our country, along with uncles, cousins, in-laws and friends.   Thank you for your service.  You are appreciated and not forgotten.  May God richly bless you and your loved ones.  Please accept this "virtual card" as my way of honoring you.


The Play Date Cafe has the perfect color combo for any patriotic card.  You still have time to play along with this week's challenge and make a card for any service man or woman in your life. 





I filmed a video hoping you could see the details on this card a little bit better.  My camera is still not focusing properly and it goes dark every time I press the shutter.  :(




For the background I stamped the Wonderfully Worn Background stamp onto Textured Cherry Cobbler paper.  The main image (Fresh Vintage SAB) was also stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  The soft blue image (Fresh Vintage SAB) is Bashful Blue, and the Thoughts of You (Loving Thoughts) is stamped in Midnight Muse (InColor 2012-2014).

 


Creative Blessings,
