Honoring, Remembering, and Thanking...

Memorial Day was created as an occasion to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom.  It is our opportunity to stop and give thanks for the many who have died protecting that freedom.  As many of you know I am an Air Force Wife.  My husband and I both come from military families.  Our dads were both in the Navy and our Grandfathers were both in the military as well.  I went from being a military dependant child to being a military dependant spouse.  The longer my husband is in the military, the more I love it.  I wouldn't trade being an Air Force Wife for the world...I absolutely love it!   One of my duties as a Key Spouse is to check up on the spouses of the deployed troops in my hubs squadron.  I've been making them a card each month to say hi and let them know I'm thinking of them.  This is the card I made for them for June=)

This is for this weeks MFTWSC73.  I'm only 3 sketches behind now=)  Anyhow, I started off stamping Pure Innocence Popping By in Memento Ink, coloring with Copics.  I stamped her dress and paper pieced it.  Then stamped her arms, popcorn, and drink again, colored them and paper pieced them.  I used Tim Holtz Scattered Straw Distress Ink for the sponging.  Sahara Sand, My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally, MME Stella and Rose Gertie, MME Lush Damask Paper.  Die-namics Pretty Posies, Die-namics Mini Monarch Border, Denami Rhinestone and Button.

Thank-you so much for stopping by. 
Hope you have a great week!

  1. Tanya, your sentiments are shared by many. My brother is military. While his troop was deployed, my Mom and I sent cards to everyone for their birthdays. We felt it was the least we could do to let them know we cared about them. I'm so greateful for the dedication and courage they have to keep us safe. Your card is so carefree and fun. I'm sure they loved it too!


Thank-you for taking a peek at my blog! Have a fabulous day!
