Today is National Anthem Day! On March 3, 1931, Congress officially designated The Star-Spangled Banner as our National Anthem!

Did you know….

  • “The Star-Spangled Banner”, a poem, was written by Francis Scott Key?
  • “The Star-Spangled Banner” was written during the War of 1812?
  • “The Star-Spangled Banner” was written on September 14, 1814?
  • Francis Scott Key’s poem was set to a tune attributed to John Stafford Smith, “To Anacreon in Heaven?

In celebration of this day, I offered my K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stamping) attendees, this patriotic card last night. It features a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp, Land of the Free, but how could I not use it?
