Always Remember

Memorial Day is a day to remember the fallen. To show respect, and to honor the brave men and women who DIED while in service to this great nation of ours. We need to always remember these brave souls. And that is what Memorial Day is all about. It’s one day of the year that is set aside to do exactly that. To pay our respects. 

I have a card today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to share my respects for those brave men and women. To say that we will always remember.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. — (Source: Wikipedia)

I created my own Flanders Field of poppies using this gorgeous stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Budding Poppies.

I stamped it once, masked off one of the poppies and stamped it again. This creates a look of dimension and there being more when there isn’t any. The coloring was all done with Distress Markers, which I used as watercolors.

The sentiment (which I LOOOOOVE) comes from another Technique Tuesday stamp set called Poppy Sentiments and is one of my all time faves. I just love this stamp set with my whole heart. My dear friend Teri Anderson designed it and the sentiments in this set are the BEST…along with the poppies, of course.

As for me, I know that I will always remember those that came before me and laid their lives on the line so that I could live in a free country. I am so proud to live in a country like ours. We have so many wonderful opportunities and we have to give thanks where they are due.

Wherever you are, I hope that you will bow your heads in a moment of silence and remember…

I hope that you’ll check out the blog to see how I made it.  You’ll also be able to see all of the awesome adhesives and supplies that went into creating it.

I’m a firm believer that you can never have enough Thank You’s on hand and this unique tag featuring the texture of burlap and the beautiful flowers will surely be appreciated. The tag wasn’t difficult to make and I’m sure that whoever YOU make one for will really love it! :)

Wishing you all a wonderful and CREATIVE week!

Dimensional Window Card

Hey there! Happy Sunday. :) I have a fun dimensional window card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.  It even comes complete with a snazzy tutorial that I made just for you…yes, YOU! :)

I wish you all could see just how cool this card is. The inside of the card fits perfectly into the front of the card. And the vellum sentiment doesn’t interfere in the slightest. It’s just so lovely. I may be a tad proud. Although, my photography skills are sorely lacking. Sorry. And…apparently I’m a vellum addict.

Anyway! Thanks for joining me today to see the window card I made. Tomorrow starts the Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog Hop that’s going on all week long. It’s going to be awesome. I’ll be up on Wednesday, but be sure to stay tuned all week long for giveaways!
