Purple For Peace Day - Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Image By Robert Jackson

Good Morning, Cardies!

MONDAY means a new Greetings Challenge at The Outlawz,   This is really an off week for me at The Outlawz (we get two weeks per month off) but I wanted to participate. Today is Purple For Peace Day, I wanted to do something to honor the service of the men and women who risk paying the ultimate price to insure our peace and tranquility. I  served in the United States Army, and the camouflage ensignia on the bow is mine.  I hand wrote the sentiment and it expresses not only my feelings, but also those of my husband  (Army) and my son (Navy) who also served.

MONDAY is  always "TAMMY'S SCRAPIN CORNER" day here at Card-d-ology.  Tammy and Marc have assembled a truly talented group of designers and they put together wonderful challenges each Monday for our pleasure.  I did not get the challenge theme for this week but hopefully, my card will qualify. I will update this post when I have the deets.  Check IT Out!!!

MONDAY is also the last day to enter this week's "Anything Goes" Challenge over at Jackson's Digital Expressions!  Special images are not required, we just love to see your fantastic designs while we use our design challenges to introduce you to the work of super talented digi artist Robert Jackson!  Our new challenge starts on Tuesday, and our Altered Art Challenge Team is hosting.  Whoopee!  This means that in addition to the jaw-dropping card creations you have been submitting, those of you love to Alter  Ojects will be able to share your creations with us!

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges: (I will add others depending on their theme)

Make It Monday -Anything Goes
Art With No Boundaries -Anything Goes
BunnyZoe's Crafts -Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations - Ribbon or Twine or Both

    Wonderful image and sentiment!

  6. Chana, I will have to come and get this image. It brought tears to my eyes. My oldest son was in the Army and in Iraq where he was in an ambush and shot 4 times. He will be having another surgery this month from those injuries. My youngest returned home from Afghanistan recently and is still a Marine. This has really touched my heart and you have honored all our service members with this card as well as Mr. Jackson for his image.
