 We are all SO happy to have her join us this month!

I had planned to create and post a patriotic card for Memorial Day, but this is what transpired instead.   The verse reads  "Memories ... Treasure the moments ... savor the past ... remember." 

What did you do for the Memorial Day holiday?  I would enjoy hearing how you celebrate.  Are you on the go or is it a quiet day of reflection and relaxation instead?  We had a mixture of both this weekend.  In fact, it was such a fabulous weekend, I don't want it to come to an end! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment and say hello.  I really do *love* hearing from you . . . it makes my day!  : )

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And I'll proudly stand next to him to defend her still today,
'cuz there ain't no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA.

I think this card is beautiful and perfect for the occassion! Even though it's not traditional... perhaps it's for a lady vet! :-)

Another beautiful card Pam!! I had a wonderful three day weekend. Saturday the wind blew like a demon but Sunday and Monday were wonderful. Went to a BBQ on Sunday and on Monday I took my newly graduated son to Best Buy in G.I. and got him a laptop computer for college. :) Today - it was back to work like usual :(
