Red, White, and Blue: Canada and The United States - Always Better Together

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Welcome to another fun challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This week we honor both Independence Day and Canada Day.   Please show us your Red, White, and/or Blue creations.    It is not necessary to use all three colors and your project does not have to have a patriotic theme.

I have been so disheartened by the unfortunate situation that has developed between the Canadian and American Governments.  I want all my Canadian friends to know that "we, the people," will never forget your friendship and support from Normandy to Baghdad.  As a US Army veteran, I offer you my sincere thanks and a heartfelt apology for the behavior of #45.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. OMW this is so touching and your write-up had me tearing up. I understand that it's just a small number (like 1) that is responsible for the current situation. Fabulous job with the challenge.

  2. Wonderful card, and well-written post!!! Thank you for saying all of that on behalf of the rest of us!!!

  3. i love this, missus. i love the meaning you've given it for our countries, but also, it's kind of a symbol of our SOS team, too!!! (ps: i love the thought of calling the current occupant of the white house #45... totally stealin' that...) ♥

  4. AMEN TO YOUR POST, MY FRIEND. And your card is the best symbol of friendship between Canada and my adoptive Country, the USA.
    I also love the calling of the current occupant of the White House #45, I'm also totally stealing that, ;)

  5. Chana, I love this. I love your post, I love your card.
    Thank you for your kind words
    As a Canadian with many amazing and wonderful American friends please know I (we) do not paint our neighbours to the south with the colours of #45
