Yes, today is Veterans' Day. And also 11/11/11.
Not just a day off from work or school, but a day to remember all those that risked life and limb to fight for what they believed was right.
My dad was a WWII Marine.
He lied about his age in order to enlist (he was 17). He survived all four campaign battles (Tinian, Roi Namur, Saipan and Iwo Jima), and eventually returned and raised 7 children. Along the way he found time to hike the entire Appalachian Trail 2 1/2 times. He died in November 2008, at age 84, and I miss him every day.
Hug a Veteran today!
So there's a new challenge at the CAS-ual Friday Blog...Create a tag!
I love making tags. They are smaller canvases and are perfect for the clean & simple style.
I made this one for a bag of gourmet candy drops using some really fun stamps from Purple Onion Designs!
(and they just happen to be our sponsor too! *wink*)
Believe it or not, Purple Onion Designs were some of the first stamps I ever owned after I got into stamping.
They used to come in my Self Addressed kits every month. Anyone out there remember those? LOL! I'm pretty sure I still have a few unopened kits somewhere! *shhhh*
So join us by making a clean & simple tag this week, either alone or on a project!
Thanks for stopping by today,
