God Bless America


What a perfect image for this Memorial Day - I picked up this FREE - yes I said FREE digi image, already colored and ready to go over at Doodle Pantry. This image is free with any purchase and ...all images, templates, and downloadable papers are 35% off this weekend. Well I had to get a few images that I had been eyeing for a while - one in particular for DH who is an avid fisherman. For my card and challenge I used the image, Patchwork Star, the red/white strip paper is also from there, and I used some blue/star paper I had in my stash. We were also to use any papercrafting item and I choose to use red/white/blue scrappers floss through the button on the star, I also used a corner punch with a small star punch out on the top corners. Then I remembered I had the perfect stamp to go with and was so fitting for Memorial Day - Always Remember at the bottom of my card. It is a retired image from TAC but was perfect. I kept it simple as there just wasn't much else to do to make this card the perfect card for this holiday. Let us not forget all of our servicemen and women who are fighting for our freedom. "We will always remember"!
