Pledge of Allegiance

I love red, white and blue! It is one of my favorite combos. And when I found this fun line of paper by My Mind's Eye... well I almost danced in the store aisle! ;^) Memorial Day always puts me in that frame of mind. As hubby and I travel this week we will pull out our trusty road atlas to monitor how to get from point A to point B. (And the GPS too...) Kinda like the sketch challenge over at ODBD. I love taking card stock (point A) following the map (the sketch) and seeing the finished product (point B). The only limits are those I place on myself! ***** And by the way, I am having so much fun traveling, I missed the deadline...(insert sad face here...) But I decided to publish it anyway!

With that theme in mind today, I pulled some old tried and true images from Our Daily Bread Designs. I have fond memories of standing in homeroom as a child reciting the Pledge. Gosh, I'm dating myself... we even had devotions and the ten commandments on our classroom wall!!! Today the ACLU would have a field day with that... Kinda ironic... it seems when our nation is in trouble, we recognize the Creator but otherwise our country has no room for Him...

Something to think about... Blessings to you and yours. We will chat again soon!

Hey Lori, girl, this is one stunning card!! I absolutely love those flowers an the foliage you've made using those punches (you are not alone having a hard time resisting those punches ;D;D) and those paper...they are just perfect!! It is tad bit late for the challenge, but I thank you so very much for taking the time to play along!! Hugs and blessings and have super fun weekend, Sabrina
