A PATRIOTIC CRAFT BANNER

Here it is - Memorial Day weekend!
I was putting up a few patriotic decorations around the house ~

when all of a sudden, I had the urge to make something! I decided I wanted to make a banner of some sort. No time to go out and buy fabric, so I decided to make a paper one. I went through my stash and decided to use this bordered piece ~

I printed out some letters, then I glue-sticked and pinked and ribboned, and this is my mini banner ~
and some close-ups of the words ~

God bless America - and God bless you, too!

Well, look how crafty you are! If I had wanted to do something like that, I would have given up after the second glass of wine.

Hope you don't mind Sue but I borrowed your picture to honour my son in the Army and all our past and present servicemen and women. Gave you the cred though!
