We remember... thank you.

Memorial Day Weekend... it is more than a 3 day weekend to party, barbecue or travel. It is a day to remember. To remember those who gave all. There are only 18 National Cemeteries in the United States of America. One of them is in our town, Each year the boy scouts help place flags on the graves. Today I went with my son and two other boys from our troop. My son is the tall one on the right. This is our ninth consecutive year to do this. He was in 1st grade that first year. I would say we are almost flag placing experts by now. 
 The Free for All challenge (F4A222) today was to make a project with a flag on it. I made a stylized flag with red and blue cardstock and texture paste.
This flag card is also for the  Mountain Plains Crafters blog.


  1. What a wonderful card - love the way you have created the flag!!

  2. Oh it's so lovely Marilynn! That textured flag looks so neat! And what a wonderful tradition you, your son and his troop do for this day of remembrance. It's so beautiful to see young people thinking of others and remembering our history. I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed holiday weekend. Hugs!

  3. This card is fabulous, Marilynn. Love the bits of shimmer you gives the flag a sense of movement. Such a lovely tribute creation. Well done!
