Hooray for the USA!

I came home to some new toys last night!! I LOVE getting new toys. I just had to play. I decided to make a card that salutes our troops. I have many friends that are active duty military and reserves. I want them to know how much that I appreciate every single one of them and their families. Some are state side and some are deployed, but they are all protecting our freedoms. I know that no matter what position they are in, in some way they are all putting their lives on the line, so that my family can live in peace and enjoy the democracy that we do. So, THANKS, to Greg, Michael, Curt, Stan, Scott, Lee, Kerry, Claire, Joy, Kristin and to all members of our armed forces.

This card uses the latest Taylored Expressions sketch and since it is a TE sketch I used the brand new released TE stamp set, 4th of July Wreath. I also got to use a Taylored die for the first time. I really really like the transparency that is provided with it. It sure saves me a TON of paper :-)

Stamps: 4th of July Wreath (TE)
Paper: Pure Luxury In the Navy, Red Hot, White; DP is from Archivers
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Real Red
Accessories: Copics, Copic Spica, Buttons, Bakers Twine, pop dots, Taylored die (wreath)

Thanks for stopping by!
