thank you for your service




today is Veteran's Day here in the United States. a huge thank-you goes out to all of those who have, are, and will serve our country, and especially to those who have given their lives to defend our freedom. although it is truly wonderful that we have a holiday to commemorate those who serve in our armed forces, everyday we should be giving thanks to those who put their lives on the line so that we may have the freedom and liberties that we enjoy in the U S of A. So thank you, to all the veterans and military families. I salute you.

here are two thank-you cards with a patriotic flair. although these two in particular will be sold at the craft fair this weekend, which is being held on our military post, I'll be making some more of these to send to the men in my husband's platoon. Also submitting this to:
caardvark's "round card with pizazz" challenge
Stamping Sisters in Christ "hero" challenge
TPE "be thankful" challenge
