Happy Memorial Day!

Hi Cyber Girl Friends! :) I hope all of you had a relaxing Memorial Day! I posted the following comment elsewhere on my blog but I want to make sure all of you had the opportunity to read it. First, I want to thank you for all your support! You are all so nice! :) I guess I lost focus for a short time & got caught up in the moment of wanting to make the Top 10 in the challenges :( I apologize because my intentions with this blog was to share what I love to do with girls like all of you who are interested in my creations! I hope you all understand. :) All the comments that you girls leave and the number of followers that are interested in my creations are WAY MORE than I ever imagined! :) I admit, it would be exciting to make the Top however, the challenges jump start my creative juices! :) So sincerely, thank you all very much! :) Now for this card, I realize I am a little late with this Memorial Day card but I was busy today making 4 sets of that "Bird" gift basket for a few friends & my sister. :) I knew I did not need this card until Tuesday morning when I returned to work. :) My inspiration for making this All American Patchwork Quilt card was for one of my dearest friends, Helen. Helen is a Registered Nurse that is also my Mentor/Co-Worker/Friend. Her very first nursing assignment fresh out of Nursing School was in an Army M.A.S.H. Unit during the Vietnam War! I work in the Operating Room and Helen is our Foundation! This is a Thank You card for ALL the men & women, ESPECIALLY Helen, for serving OUR Country, putting their lives on the line for OUR Freedom! I incorporated Color Inspiration #53 found at KWERNERDESIGN.COM Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! Please feel free to leave a comment. Be Sweet! Until next time...

This is so wonderful! I know what you mean about the top 10. It used to consume me as well, and I used to get so disappointed, because I never get picked. Then, I realized that I was having too much fun creating and seeing everyone elses cards to worry about it anymore.

It's the perfect Memorial Day card. You did a great job on it and I'm sure your support is appreciated by many. And, I bet you will make the top 10 sooner than later ~ we all will have our day at some point :)

I can only say wow. WOW! That card is gorgeous and so was your sentiment. You've outdone yourself.

I knew I loved your cards and your comments and I realized the connection when I read your blog. I used to call on OR nurses in my past life (before my son). I worked for Steris (Which was AMSCO way back then). Anyway keep on creating - your cards are AMAZING!

Love the patriotic patchwork, Mona!

Stacey Pembroke said...

Really lovely, patchwork! How unique! Very well done!

Linda Beeson said...

I love your card! LOVE that paper and love how you used the colors.

Janet Strain said...

Wow what a great card for Memorial Day. It's hard to use red, white, and blue sometimes and not make it look too... show-y. But this is so nice and subdued. But very poignant. Love it!

Thank you so much for leaving a sweet comment!
