Thank the Troops Blog Hop !!!!

HI Everyone thanks for hopping over!! If you just hopped from Haidee then your in the right place. If you need to start at the beginning click HERE.
I created a card a soldier could send to another hurt soldier or someones family. Those seem to be the hardest cards for people to make and give.

I used Stand & Salute for the medal and Gypsy Wanderings for the heart. I had to change some of the cut lines in my gypsy to create the purple heart medal.
I also used a Pink by Design stamp from "Our Heros", a SU punch, and a star punch for the top of the flag.

I wanted something simple looking but powerful at the same time.


I also used Glossy Accents on the purple heart for the shine
Thanks to all the troops past and present for their service in protecting our Freedom !!!




** Blog Candy** If you'd like to become a follower and leave a comment I will draw a winner for a handmade vinyl bug head of your choice from the colors I have (made by me) to put on your car or machine !!!!




Thanks so much for stopping by !!! Your next stop on the hop is Kari !!!
