Memorial Day Weekend

Hello everyone...hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!!! Some of you may still be celebrating with a day off work and a BBQ....there is nothing like a little food with family and friends to make the day complete!!! We took our granddaughter home this afternoon and on the way back we rented a few movies and got take out from the Olive Garden....yummmmm!!!

Anyway....I couldn't let the Memorial Day weekend go by without making a patriotic card. Since we are a military family (retired), Memorial Day has special meaning. This is a fun little card that I will give my DH today....Papertrey Ink's Vintage Picnic set was stamped on the craft and the images were paper pieced with Creative Imaginations dp. The sparkly star and twine finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!

Hi Joan, I hadn't heard of Memorial Day before, is it to commemorate the fallen, like our Remembrance Day in November? Great that you have patriotic days, and your card is great too, I love that images you put together for this. CoB
