Cards for Family

 The cards I am showing you today were made for members of my extended family. I used long-retired Close to My Heart papers, card sketches from Operation Write Home, and stamps by Art Impressions (the house),
Posh Impressions (flower) and Hero Arts (sentiment). You probably can't see it very well but there is a sheer white ribbon on the pink card. Both of these cards, like the two I showed you in my last post, are from a set of blank 5" x 6.5" cards that I got at Michael's last summer (I believe it is their store brand, Recollections?).

In the midst of what promises to be a busy day, I find myself thinking about 7 December 1941. I wish there was a way to convince young people of the importance of remembering and reflecting on things that happened long before they were born (heck, 1941 is before I was born, too!). It seems more and more like anything from the past just doesn't hold any meaning for a generation that is growing up with everything happening at the speed of light. They seem to live only in the moment, with no respect for the past and no thought of the future. Maybe I'm wrong. I hope I am.
