Today is an important day..
Memorial Day
Today we Honor our Military. This has always been an important day for me but it was made more so when my son became a Marine.  He will always be a Marine and I will always be a Marine Mom!
I am a Proud Mom and am grateful for the sacrifices our Military and He have made for my Freedom!

This says it all... 
I wrote out the 'because of the' but the 'FREEDOM' and the 'BRAVE' are from a retiring stamp set, Words of Courage. 

Using the 'NEW" Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, these stars  are the perfect size.

Curling the 'freedom' and 'brave' so it looks as if they are waving in the wind.

Also, just using a glue dot the stars were left to curl up the edges.

How did the flag look get created...the base is Cherry Cobbler adding 3/4" strips of Whisper White and a section of Midnight Muse for the star section.

Leaving the inside simple with whisper white and midnight muse stars.

Please take the time to Thank a Service member today!
Or write a letter to a Hero, How you ask?? I will be sending a box to OWH, Operation Write Home soon and they are always looking for Hero letters to send.  What is a Hero letter?? This letter goes to a member of the military who does not get any mail from home.  
Contact me for more information.

Have a Great day getting Crafty!!
