Memorial Day Remembrance...

As we go into Memorial Day today, please pause to remember the families of people across our great country who have lost loved ones. So many great servicemen and servicewomen have fought to preserve our freedoms, allowing us the ability to work, live, worship and more, as we FREELY choose. Many fought then paid the ultimate price for these freedoms. Please remember them and their families today.
We are fortunate to have a craft that affords us the opportunity to not only deal with hard issues like sorrow and grief but also allows to create artwork to document, honor and remember. In this LO created by my dear friend, Ms Sara, honor and importance is given to remembering this young marine; one who did "give all".
In remembrance and gratitude, today, reflect on your freedoms bought for you by the service and sacrifice of so many.
Peachy Heart and grateful hugs, Debbie


This artwork was created by artists at CTMH corporate office. The papers used are from our new level 2 paper kit, "Passages". These papers have a very warm and wonderful old world feel to them, in my opinion. They are reflected specifically on pages 20 through 23 in our current Idea Book. (If you don't have a current Idea Book, you can see one online at my website, or you can contact me to obtain your own copy.) The Passages palette includes Barn Red, Brown Bag, Cocoa and Garden Green, fabulous for heritage, masculine, travel and outdoor photographs. I plan to use it on some photos I have not yet scrapped from the time we lived in Italy and went on a retreat with most of our church over a Thanksgiving weekend. I think these papers will complement those pictures nicely. Very simple and classic, perfect inspiration for those masculine card needs. Happy Card Making everyone! Peachy Heart hugs, Debbie

The Winner Is...

Well, I guess she must have got on my blog just after I posted, because I got a message from Geri about ten minutes after I posted my last message...I had not even logged out of the blog yet. So congratulations Geri! Geri selected "Connections", which is a very versatile stamp set and is great for Random Stamping. If you don't know what RS is, then ask me, it is a wonderful technique to have in your repertoire. Peachy Heart Hugs, Debbie
