This week the Inspired Stamps DT is to showcase a project that is Patriotic. July 1st was Canada Day which celebrated Canada's 144th Birthday, I went with a red and white theme (our flag colours).
*Edited to add* I forgot to mention that I hand wrote the word Canada to add to the banner, and the little flag was clipart I printed off the computer.
Another show of support for our troops is Red Friday, quoted from the Red Fridays Foundation of Canada "Wearing Red on Fridays is a symbolic gesture to show fellow Canadians and our troops that we care and honour those who fought for our freedom, our peace, our resolve."

Inspired Stamps image His Little Ones: Boy Soldier with Helmet. I used my husbands field hat to get the colours right...I wouldn't want to goof on that, or I'd never hear the end of it from hubby, lol:)
Inspired Stamps are designed and proudly made in the US, hence the US uniform, but that didn't stop me from tweaking it to make it Canadian. As you can see I added a bit of brown in the uniform, and altered it to include the Canadian flag. On the CADPAT (combat uniform) there is only a name tag, so I added hubby's surname, and camouflaged the other one.
