Calendar Girls - May

Happy Memorial Day!    Our Calendar Girls from SCS posting date happened to fall on the holiday.   This nuance was not missed by our hostess this month, Barb.

Our challenge for the month of May, was to create a card with a patriotic themed image and use red, white and blue papers.

I found an image from an unknown company, that I received in an image swap that would work well for our challenge. The great sentiment is from Create With TLC.   I colored the image with Copic markers and took out my patriotic DP's that I purchased  last year in anticipation for the 4th of July.

I am so humbled by the service our military gives to our country.  To go off to uncharted territory leaving what you know behind, battling and living in a way that we fortunately did not have to grow up with and see and do things that we never could imagine in our daily lives.   Those individuals are the true heroes.  Because of them we can say this!

If you would like to help our troops, please visit Operation Write Home.   Your talent and hobby can help our service men and women communicate with their family and friends. 

Please be sure and visit all of the Calendar Girls to see what they have to offer this month.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Enjoy your day and wave your flag! We will be with family and friends.
