Happy Memorial Day ~ 2021!


Hi friends!

Happy Memorial Day!

I'm getting a late start to my post because I've been enjoying

 time with my family and took a few days off of social media :)

It's been amazing to get so much done around the house, 

completing some projects AND have fun, too!

The more serious side of today is celebrating the meaning

behind Memorial Day.

Growing up in a military family, and having my older brother

still serving and stationed far away in Europe,

this day makes my heart swell with pride.

The sacrifices made for me and my family is humbling

and I carry a strong sense of gratitude for our miliary!

So ... naturally one of my favorite Altenew stamp is this one:

Land of the free.

I paired it one of the backgrounds I made from the ice cube painting

(see! It was fun AND practical! You can see the video version here :)

I used Bearly Art glue to hold the firm, thick acrylic paint background

to the cardstock and added the die cut eagle and stars as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

However you are spending your day today,

I hope it's amazing!
