I was really looking forward to this week's challenge over at The Friday Mashup. My father gave over 20 years of his life to the Canadian Navy and I feel very proud of the commitment he made to serving the great country we Canadians are blessed to call home.
I agree we owe a huge debt of gratitude to those men and women who serve to protect us all, but I feel there are also very strong men and women who are not thought of enough and those are the spouses and families behind the soldiers. My mom is one of them and looking back on my childhood I cannot begin to imagine how she was able to keep it all together with three children and a husband who worked so very hard and in doing so was not always there.
The sketch for this card came from Try Stampin' on a Tuesday, which I did this week! I found it to be perfect and simple to not take away from the overall look of the card.
· Make a project that's "Patriotic, for Remembrance or saying Thanks".
· Or Make a project with the colors " Whisper White, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade & Daffodil Delight."
· Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Remembrance or Patriotic project using the colors above."
· Donate your card to a Wounded Solider or that Special Service Member in your Life!
I will be making sure this card find's its way into the hands of someone special for sure!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
