Let Freedom Ring! Happy Flag Day!

Today is Flag Day here in the U.S.!  You may remember if you have been following my blog a while that each year I make my sister a card for Flag Day.  It started years ago when she made a comment that I make cards for ANY reason, that I would even make one for Flag Day.  Well, my late husband reminded me of her comment, and from then on she gets a card on this day.  This year is the 10th year I am sending her one.

Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers, Fired Brick Distress Ink
Paper: Gina K Designs
Misc.:  Dreamweaver Silver Embossing Paste, Simon Says Stamp Stars Stencils, Ribbon



In all seriousness, there is nothing more beautiful that seeing our flag hung and waving in the breeze. Thank you to all who gave so much for us to be so lucky to live in freedom.  All you have to do is turn on the news and hear about so many that aren't as fortunate, and I thank my lucky stars for Old Glory.

If you live in the U.S. I hope you will join us in hanging your flag!

Until next time!

Happy Flag Day - we made sure to put our flag out early this morning. I just adore patriotic holidays, and this card is such a great example of the your love of America and your long-time tradition to your friend. LOVE it!

Super cute card Winnie and I love the patriotic basket image! I haven't made any 4th of July cards but this is making me want to make one! :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend! :)

As a child growing up in a military family and a brother still serving, your post LITERALLY brought tears to my eyes - but happy tears :) Indeed these are colors most divine and say so much! I have ours out flying as well - beautiful card, beautiful tribute to your sister, too - 10 years later! (and good thing you didn't say something like toilet paper, ROFL!) Hugs!!

Beautiful card Winnie! I love your background paper with the tiny stars dotting the navy blue card stock. So perfect on your card for Flag Day. We have a flag pole in the front yard and love to watch the flag wave when there's a breeze...beautiful sight indeed. Thanks for sharing your card today. Hugs, Geri N
