Thanking Those Who Serve

I had a recent request to make some Welcome Home Soldier cards and so these are the two designs I came up with... meant to have these posted earlier today, but since it's still Memorial Day in my neck of the woods, I hope you'll still enjoy them!

This first one uses a new 6x6 paper pad I recently picked up from We R Memory Keepers and the stick pin star is also part of the line.  The sentiment on the tag here is "My Hero Honors" #MC0344-F from Verses Rubber Stamps.  The layout for this card comes from Retro Sketches #13 this week (I turned the sketch on the side.)

This second card uses one of my most favorite Flourishes stamp set, Patriotism on Parade.  The papers used here are from Authentique, and I used my Cricut to cut out the largest star in the background, and a Die-Namics die for the smaller stars.  The "Welcome Home" on the tag is from the brand-new Front Porch stamp set, also from Flourishes.

My most humble thanks today to all who have served and are currently serving to preserve our freedom!  May God be with you all!
