Today we will visit local cemeteries for the Memorial Day observances. We start with a very brief (don’t be late!) parade through our little downtown and follow the participants up to Ellwood House, where our municipal band will perform and dignitaries will speak.
I must have one or two tissues in my pocket at all times, especially when we go to Woodlawn Cemetery in nearby Creston. We have no kin there, but many of our friends do. So it is a bittersweet homecoming of sorts, as former neighbors greet each other at this annual ritual.
This card was one from a recent workshop. It uses the faux silk technique, which we will use at camp in June. The star is a die cut — just a bit larger than our star punch.
