Celebrating Memorial Day

I felt compelled to create Memorial Day cards today with my Kitchen Sink Stamps to honor our remarkable men and women who have given so much in the service of our country. Because of them we are able to live a life of freedom in this amazing country we call home. To each and every one of them, both past and present, I send my heartfelt thanks.  (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).

  1. Happy Memorial Day! Your cards are perfect for honoring our heroes! I especially like the cute teddy bear.

  2. Cute, cute, CUTE! Love the banner on that first one and the little bear and flags on the second. Two sensational cards!

  3. Oh my gosh, Lynn, what fabulous creation. Love the crisp, clean simplicity of your first card, but I have to say the scene you created with the bear holding the flag is sensational. What a work of art!

  4. Both cards are fantastic and your post is so right on! We should all spend more time honoring our service men and women!

  5. Super post Lynn with lovely cards to back up your sentiments.
