TO ALL OUR MILITARY-PAST AND PRESENT!

As we begin the Memorial Day weekend let us all be mindful of the blessing we have and the wonderful people who do and have fought for our freedom! Because of them we are able to continue to live the lives we WANT to!

Each and every one of you who serves our country serves us and I would like you to know that I pray for your and thank God for you always!

This week's Blogger's challenge is a tribute to you!

My card seems simple on the out side but really puts the point across on the inside. The inside was inspired by a card I seen on Laura's blog.

I am more than thrilled with how it turned out and it was really quick and easy too!






Stamps: Godspeed, Stars Wheel and Stampendous words
Paper: Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy and Real Red
Other: Sizzix Alphabet, acetate


I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. Blessing to you all.
