Labor Day !!

Happy Labor Day Everyone! This weeks challenge is to create something related to labor day!

This card is made and dedicated to all the men and women in Law Enforcement!
So many years My husband and I worked Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, Family Reunions, and back to back 18 hour shifts.
Each day they sacrifice time away from their families protecting us, many complete strangers from harm. Some even make the ultimate sacrifice and that is what this card is for. The NLEOM stands for the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial. Their symbol is the badge with a rose through it.

I created this card with Independence Day for the Flag, Everyday Paper Dolls for the badge, and Indie Art for the rose. Also used was the Distressing stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder. I also used rhinestones and red and green stickles for the rose.

SO the next time you see a Police Officer, Fireman, or Soldier take a minute to thank them for their service. They are putting their life in harms way to save and protect what is most dear to us, our families.
