For our soldiers, with gratitude

***this will be a short post because I am supremely irritated that I typed out a long post and blogger ATE it!!!***

My plan was to head to Busch Gardens today, but I woke up and wasn't in the mood. Shocking, since it's one of my fave places to go, but I just wasn't up for the drive and didn't feel like moving. I went back to bed, slept in til 9:00, bummed around with a book for a bit, then decided to make some cards. I got this great stamp from Hobby Lobby earlier this week, because it expresses my feelings towards are soldiers perfectly. The new sketch at Sweet Stop Sketches also seemed perfect for it. These cards are based after Sweet Sketch #112.
The stamp says: "Soldier, because of your bravery, courage, and sacrifice, liberty and freedom are still ours. We are deeply grateful."

When I bought the stamp, I came home and made this card with it, which I promptly mailed off to a soldier:


Please consider supporting groups like Soldier's Angels and Operation Write Home. Let's give back to those who sacrifice for us every day!
