Hero's Challenge

Over at If the Shoe Fits...(yes I have been there a lot - I LOVE that site) I was actually invited to participate in a challenge. It's called the Hero's Challenge and it is in honor of Armed Forces Day on May 16th. Here's what I came up with:

I personally do not have anybody I know in the Armed Forces. I am, however, VERY patriotic. The challenge was to make a card or layout that celebrates the Hero in your life. I believe all of those in are Armed Forces are heros everyday.

This set was under the premise of cards a soldier could use to write a quick note to whomever. The cards are a flat one layer, not folded. There are six of them - three vertical and three horizontal.

The details: stamps are Kim Hughes Cornish Heritage Farms and the ribbon is Doodlebug Uncle Sam (very appropriately named for this challenge).

So with these cards, I salute our Soldiers in the Armed Forces and thank them for the freedom they give us by serving our country.

On a totally un-patriotic note....remember to check out my BLOG CANDY. Just leave a comment on the blog candy post AND watch my visitor counter and you could WIN!!!
