Memorial Day Weekend

Hi there!

We have a long, three day weekend here in the U.S. to honor those heroes who have served in the military and to remember how they gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. These brave men and women make our lives safer. They fight for us so we can continue to enjoy our way of life. I am so grateful for their service and sacrifice! 

Here is a card I made in honor of all those who have served.

I used the Simon Says Stamp, Fit To Be Square die and matching stamp set. I'm entering this into the CAS-ual Friday's challenge #102.

 

Take a moment this weekend to reflect on how lucky we are to have these brave men and women keeping us safe.

So glad you stopped by! Enjoy your weekend!
