God Bless You for Serving

Happy Memorial Day! While we all enjoy our extra day to relax or spend with family, let's not forget the real meaning of today. Remember those that have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. And say thank you to all who have served and are still serving our country. I am truly grateful and pray God will protect you and your families. Thank you!

I still had red, white, and blue on my mind, so I decided to create a little patriotic scene using some die cuts and stamps. Seriously, so fun!

  1. love both the cards but the scenic one is so clever and cute!

    1. Thank you, Robin! The patriotic scene was super fun to make.

  2. Your cards are awesome Kristie! I love that first one, of course I'm a sucker for anything patriotic so I love the second one too. Cute little scene. My son just retired from the service, an early retirement-health related but I am so glad because I won't have to see him do anymore deployments!! He did 5 and I think that is enough. I know other soldiers have did more than that and I just don't think they should have to do that many, but understand why. I will continue to keep our beloved soldiers in my prayers as our soldiers rock! Hugs, Brenda

    1. Thank you, Brenda! And thank your son for his years of service. I bet you are glad now that he is home. Our heroes are truly amazing and I'm so grateful to them all.
