Thank You Patriots

Hello Crafty Friends,
Happy Memorial Day to those in the USA!
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.
Here is a patriotic "Thank You"
 My minis are 3" x 3".
I finally used the sewing machine to stitch around the edges. Not perfect, but I am trying! Eager to trying some other types of stitches now.
 These flowers are layered with foam tape to give dimension.

Happy Bank Day to my UK friends!
A bank holiday is a public holiday in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth countries, other European countries such as Switzerland, and a colloquialism for a public holiday in Ireland. There is no automatic right to time off on these days, although banks close and the majority of the working population is granted time off work or extra pay for working on these days, depending on their contract. Many large shops open on bank holidays, when many people have a day off for shopping.
Enjoy Shopping!
Coming Soon!
 Stay creative and enjoy the rest of your day,
