Take Time to Thank a Veteran!

November 11th has been a special day of recognition here in the United States since the end of World War I. Somehow one day a year just doesn't seem enough for the many sacrifices generations of our service men and women have made to keep our country safe.

To honor our Veterans and their dedicated service to our country on this special holiday, I had to use this darling image from Mo's Digital Pencil for today's challenge. This little guy has a myriad of interchangeable hats representing every branch of service that he can don. And, today, he's wearing his US Army beret. There's a special soldier that I have in mind who will be the recipient.

The challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is to use vellum &/or acrylic.. and although it might not look like it, that tab in the upper left corner is a piece of vellum that I stamped with my sentiment. Take time to join us in our challenge this week, friends.

I hope that you are enjoying your day and you will take a moment to thank a veteran for his or her service.

Be well, friends... stay safe.

I'm sending hugs your way.
