Happy Memorial Day weekend! This is the weekend we celebrate all of our military men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom. I have been married to my Air Force soldier now for 9 years. My job as a mother is going to be alot harder in the next year as my husband prepares for a year long deployment. He was not forced to take this job, he signed up for it. So when you enjoy time with your family this Memorial Day weekend, please keep our soldiers in your prayers and remember that freedom isn't free.
I hope you enjoy my card I made especially for this weekend. So here is what I used: Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Summer Sun; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy, Apricot Appeal, Black Stazon; Stamps: The Free & the Brave, Canvas Background (retired); Accessories: Sizzix Ribbon Sizzlet, Sizzix Top Note Die (exclusive to Stampin'Up!) Key Tag punch, Pewter Jumbo eyelets, linen thread.
So I signed up for the Memorial Day Bloghop, hosted by Cards for Heroes, http://cardsforheroes.org/ . There are over 100 bloggers signed up for this hop, so you will have the opportunity to check out all of their wonderfully creative patriotic ideas in honor of Memorial Day. You will also have option of leaving comments on each blog. Some of the bloggers are giving away Blog Candy. Blog candy is a free give away item you can win if you leave a comment under their Memorial Day Bloghop blog entry. I happen to be giving away some blog candy myself.
This wonderfully patriotic Stampin'Up! "Land That I Love" stamp set can be yours if you leave a comment below ;) I will use one of those internet sites that picks random numbers, so good luck!
Now that you have enjoyed my post, here is the next one on the stop, check out Suz blog at: http://craftysuz.blogspot.com
