Re: Return Troops Home!

At this time of year, many families have loved ones who are deployed overseas. The holidays are the hardest. Fearing they may be lost. Waiting for them to come home. The design is message of desire to have our loved ones brought home.
here's a link for a more detail version.
Please leave any comments and feedback.
Thanks for the support.

I don't know what it is, but the fact that you have a light on in the house adds tons to this design. Nice work!

I agree. And I was hoping that this shirt could be a tiny protest or statement one could wear, not just at the holidays but means most now for many. Thanks for the love!

Thanks. Honestly, that was merely accidental and was done for asthetics but now means more after realizing what that means in context.

feed back would be great on this design.
Is the message too strong or is it the color scheme used?
Would love to find out more.
Thanks.

Ohh...I also really like the simplicity of the design and the colors. If you wanted some 'pop' you may put a tree with a yellow ribbon next to the house...then maybe people wouldn't have to think as hard...while they are voting for whales????

I wish I knew. Its hard to tell. I appreciate the comments and feedback. I wanted to do something for our troops and for the families wanting them home. I wish others felt the same way but I guess a whale and other designs are desired this week instead.
and maybe you're right about the design being too complex for the voters and requires more items like the yellow ribbon.
Maybe I'll rework it with that advice.
Thanks again.

This is a meaningful design. I like the symbols you chose to express the sentiment. Voted!
