Happy Memorial Day!! Thank you to all of the brave Military Men and Women!!

Patriotic Treat

Coming from a military wife and a military mom, this is a very special day for me!! Although it is a great day for families to gather and BBQ, my heart goes out to those honoring family members or friends who have died serving our country!! My prayers are with you, and also with those who family members are serving away from home at this time. Thank you for your sacrifices!!
I love to make patriotic treats!! I send them to my sons troop in Afghanistan, give them to friends, I can make them all year round!! My son has an all guys in his troop (due to what they do) and I know the candy comes out, and these go right in the trash, but at least they know, somebody took the time to make them something and show they are being thought of!!

A week away, but I am back!!

"Memorial Day BUNCO Blast"

I have been on a break from blogging, but I am back!! Last night I had my Memorial Day Bunco Blast!! It was so much fun!! It was delayed 1 night due to a disaster on our local freeway, but I still had a full house!! (I have never done that before, but when more than 1/2 the guest had no way to get here, I go on the phone, and every guest could come the next night, and was happy to change, so I did!!) Anyway, above are photos of my BUNCO cards, score pads and favors!! All prizes were Stampin' Up! like glue sticks, buttons, ribbon, paper, etc. The main prizes were gift certificates!! It was so much fun, I love my Bunco events, and getting together with my Stampin' Friends!!

I used the clip art below for my pattern!! Just enlarge it to whatever size boot you want to make!!
