Veteran's Day & USMC Birthday

Hi There

Gosh I have missed you all. Hope everyone is doing well. Praying for all those suffering thru the aftermath of Sandy and Athena. When I am tempted to complain about how cold it is here this winter I will think of those on the east coast and say a prayer for them all instead.

WOW I can’t believe the last time I posted summer was still hanging on and fires were still burning in the high Cascades. We have since skipped past autumn and we are expecting snow by morning. The Cascades have been covered with snow for weeks now.  Although our days have been  comfortable night time temps are below freezing so winter is definitely here.

I am still preoccupied with craft fairs but I wanted to take a moment to share a few cards. I’ll be back to posting and visiting soon.

Anyone who has followed my blog for a bit knows my family and I are very patriotic. My father and his six brothers served in WWII and or the Korean Conflict. Jim served in Viet Nam and I am a Viet Nam era Vet. Our son served in the Gulf War and our daughter served as well.

If you know a US Marine you know the Marine Corps birthday, 11 November 1775, is as important to him or her as their own birthday if not more so. As they say ‘Once a Marine always a Marine’. Nov. 12 is Veteran's Day.  I’ve made the following cards to thank all the Veteran’s in my life for their service, to wish them a Happy Veteran’s Day and to wish the Marines a Happy USMC Birthday. 

If you have any questions about these cards please feel free to ask.  I haven't been by for a while but I have used many snippets on these cards so I'll stop by the Playground and take a quick peek in the Tree house.

Please remember to thank the Veterans in your life this weekend.

Hubby was a Viet Nam vet, and 5 brothers & my dad also served in the armed forces. Along with a couple nephews. I'm glad you thought of it with these pretty cards, and thank you for thinking of it!
