I was contacted through my craft page on FB to do "something airforce related" for wooden yard decor, because this lady's husband was going to be deployed for the holidays. She wanted to do something special for her little girl and she thought this would be fun for them. My good friend wanted a marine soldier from me for his yard, so I borrowed his idea for the air force toy soldier. The santa with the flag bag was kind of just a stroke of inspiration. Given more time, I would have re-drawn him for his face to face us, and for him to look more jolly. But I kind of love the concept, anyway. More importantly, she and her little girl loved them, so that was the best part. The colors are off in the pics because of the lighting. The actual color is somewhere in between those two. Smiley

Oh, and PS- Google sometimes has too much information. It was SO hard to narrow down something that looked remotely like the proper dress blues for the air force! I did what I could on a 4 ft tall soldier! Smiley

What a lovely thought.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
