Giving Thanks!

Create with Connie & Mary

Yesterday was Veteran's day, and in a miltary family we definately "give thanks" to all the service members, current or past for what they have given us.. FREEDOM, which we do not take lightly.

Many Veteran's days, we still have to work our full time jobs, but still want to give back to those that have given to us. At work, we are hosting a drive for the VA, in which you bring in new or gently used DVD's, current or up to 3 years old, and they distribute them to soldiers that are in the hospital, recovering, or those they are assisting in getting settled back in to world. Its a movie, we all love our movies... but when I brought this up to my teens, they headed to the DVD collection and gathered 15 DVD's for the drive {{insert proud moment here}}! Even more so when my son volunteered to assist in delivering them!!!

I used the colors in the Create with Connie & Mary Color Challenge to make a few cards for the local VA. I paired the colors with the Gentle Falling leaves set, and then cut it out. I used the Handpenned Sentiments to complete the card.



Thank you for stopping by!
Hug the ones you love!

Have a great day!
