OWH Sketch Challenge and a Little Something for Those with Deployed Loved Ones
As I write this post I am also eating breakfast–a burrito from Pinterest no less. I reached over to take a swig of water, grabbed the Louisiana hot sauce bottle and almost imbibed… That would wake you right up!
At any rate, here’s my take on OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch #134. I flipped it horizontally.
I also made a very simple fall card. The paper is from DCWV and has a nice shimmer to it.
Can you believe it is almost fall?!
The next image is a picture that I took for my Facebook cover picture while one of our sons is deployed. I added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements. I thought I’d put up here for anyone with deployed loved ones to use. If you use it, I would appreciate a link to my blog. For my international visitors, the yellow ribbon is a symbol of remembering someone when they are away and looking forward to their return. The custom may go way back, but it really became popular in the late 1970s when America had 52 hostages held in Iran for 444 days. I remember seeing them on trees everywhere as a reminder to pray for the hostages safe return. At that time, using the yellow ribbon as a symbol was inspired by a hit song from Tony Orlando and Dawn. Now it has become a common symbol for remembering our military troops while they are away.
