Today's card is not my Memorial Day card, but it does express my respect and awe for those who serve our country. Long-time readers know that my husband was an officer in the United States Air Force for 20 years. I watched him go to war...twice. He and those he served with are fine examples of what it means to make sacrifices for a greater purpose, for freedom, for others, and for country.
The men and women who sign on the dotted line and give up their right to choose what they do and where they live, who are willing to give everything up to and including their lives for their country...well, those men and women are amazing, fabulous, great. Words don't quite convey the depth of my gratitude.
Word collages like this are so easy with the right set of stamps, and You Are from Clearly Besotted is just such a set. The stars are from miscellaneous other sets and stamped in Brilliance metallic silver, which is oh so shiny.
I hope you're enjoying a fine holiday weekend, and I hope you'll remember those service members who, right now, are in harm's way, as well as those who have given their lives in service to freedom.
