Happy Memorial Day: Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release – Day 2

Waltzingmouse Stamps - USA 1776 - www.amazingpapergrace.com
A veterans daughter, a veterans sister, a veterans wife . . . this is my legacy and the brave men who allowed me that legacy, I celebrate and remember today.   I honor their memory with such pride and thankfulness.  In addition, I honor the memory of all the fallen who gave their lives so that we might have freedom and I honor all those who have served.  They are your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and husbands too – my heartfelt gratitude to them all.  I guess it was befitting that the release includes a patriotic set of stamps that I could use to reflect those feelings – honestly I have very few of those types of stamps and it felt wonderful to put these to a good use.

Hope you can spare a moment to visit the other ladies today :-)  I hope this isn’t too somber, but it’s honest — I’m off to the cemetery later to add some flags and say a prayer.  Prayers for all those you are remembering too.

  • Marlene IacuzziMay 28, 2013 - 6:48 am

    your card makes me want to go to a parade. I love your paper choice. I chose red and white geraniums to take to the cemetery this year. Why didn’t I put some blue in there with them?
    RE: this contest I would like to win, (can’t figure out how to get my comment in the right place) I also need to learn more about good art design. you can always tell when a professional has made the card,. I hope that rubs off a little from all of the hours I spend on the sites of artists like you, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Francie in MontrealMay 28, 2013 - 7:46 am
