HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

At least to all of you who are in the USA.  I have several family members who have served in the armed forces and they define the word courage as do all those who have served.  Thank you!

I hope you all are having fun chatting over at The Greeting Farm group at Paper Craft Planet.
If you haven't been over, please check it out, there are challenges, prizes and just plain ole chatty fun!
There will be two challenges for the party, Retro and Shabby Chic and you will have until TOMORROW at 2pm CST to play along.


I went a little retro with my card because CHEEKY MATE (available from TGF at 12:00pm CST tonight) reminded me of those vintage WWII posters I have seen in antique stores.  While her sweetheart is off in a far away land she is keeping the home fires burning, waiting patiently for his safe return.
