Singer's Muse by Penny Black
I colored the images with Copics. I double stamped the bird and colored the second image and trimmed it out and popped it up in order to have dimension to the card.
"Friend" is part of a sentiment from the Edge to Edge transparent set by Penny Black. Love the size of it!! I couldn't resist putting a little wooden bird on the sentiment tag. And of course a line of stitching!
It's Memorial Day weekend here in the United States. Our family has a strong military tradition with all four branches represented among the generations. I was an "Army brat" growing up and saw firsthand the difficulties of frequent transfers and separations.
My grand nephew Michael was severely wounded and lost both legs serving his second tour in Afghanistan. I am happy to report he is doing extremely well. He and his boyhood friend Tony, who also lost his legs, have partnered in starting a nonprofit to provide hunting and fishing trips to fellow wounded warriors!
Enjoy your holiday weekend; but please remember the meaning behind it.
If you stop by my home, be sure to notice the seven flags proudly waving in the front yard!
