+++If you are looking for the Lasting Memories challenge, please scroll down+++Today is another great day to be alive. Here we are again for another Simply Sunday at Getting Cricky. This week's challenge is featuring our "Freedom isn't Free" stamp set. I know we just came from a Getting Cricky blog hop, click here if you missed it, featuring this stamp set, but can we ever do too much for out troops? I currently have 4 friends that are serving overseas and I pray for them every day. There is still time to make a card and mail it here if you want to join in for the Run for the Fallen.
With all the posts that we've been doing lately for our soldiers, I started to think about my dad a lot more. He served in the Army as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne division so I thought, since I will be seeing him soon I would make him a card and this is what I came up with.
Again, I used the Stand and Salute cart and Kristal's "Freedom isn't Free" stamp set of course. I bought this cartridge because I thought I would be able to make some cool 4th of July images for my layouts, but making these cards has been a great delight for me. I just can't seem to make enough.
Here is a mug I did for him a while back:
|These are the paratrooper wings and his name that
I vinyled onto a travel coffee mug for him.
He takes that mug everywhere.
I hope you've enjoyed my card and hope that you will come over to Getting Cricky and add one of your own and maybe honor someone close to you as I am doing for my dad.
