He will not talk, read, or watch any kind of television show or movie about WW II. It is just too painful. He is 87 years old and time still hasn't healed those injuries. It never will. So I say to our government, think long and hard before committing our men and women to the horrors of war. Unfortunately, many of those so eager to involve us in war, are the ones who will do anything to avoid it personally.
Here is a card I made to say Thank You to our veterans.
This is a triangle fold card. The card base is white card stock. The blue paper is DCWV. I added ribbon on the diagonal and made a tea bag fold medallion. The medallion has a red glittered brad in the center.
To make the medallion, I downloaded an American flag image from the internet. I copied and pasted it into a word doc eight times. The flag was 2" tall. I then cut the flags into 2" squares, and then began the folding.
And now, here's a look at the inside of the card.
The patterned inside paper is from My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is one of KAndres's from her Freedom Isn't Free set. $1.00 from the sale of the stamps goes to the Intrepid and Fallen Heroes Fund.
And to finish the card, I added a few glittered stars.
I am sending this card to Rebecca of the Crafting Misfit to hand deliver to the Run for the Fallen event in Maine. If you would like to know more about this group go to Rebecca's blog and read how you too can make a card for the event.
