Memorial Day

 Today we celebrate Memorial Day here in the US as we remember those who served our country. Some gave all in their efforts to keep us free and to all those who continue serving today, we salute you with a heartfelt thanks.

Today I have a card I made for my BIL who recently lost his wife of 55 years.
I used some snippets of leftover dsp I've been cleaning up, and this is the last of them. The sentiment panel is one I cut with my Cricut before I sold it about 7 years ago. I found it in my snippets box and finally got to use it since the colors were a good match to the papers. The sentiment is from a retired SU! set and I added 2 silver brads to finish this one.
The sentiment reflects how I feel today as I remember not only my BIL, but my dad, uncle, cousin, nephew, and FIL who all served in the military.

I'll enter this into the Snippets Playground #429.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day whatever you do.

A great tribute to all the veterans. They all deserve a shout out for their service.

Such a lovely tribute to your family my friend! Thank you to all of your family including yourself for the sacrifices that were made.

Did I read that right when you said this is the last of your dsp stash?! That is awesome and I think you've done a great job of finishing it with your card here! Love the blue tones and it all goes together nicely my friend!

Great design with those sweet snippets Carol, you are always so good at using remaining pieces of dsp!! The sentiment panel with its colours is just perfect, nobody could say that it was done a lot of time ago! Well done for the tribute to your BIL and to your family's men that served in military. Sending you my biggest hugs in this important Memorial Day!
