******* HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY *******

Happy Veteran's Day!!!!!

Here is a card I created to pay tribute to all those who have served and are serving in the ARMED FORCES. May God Bless you all & THANK YOU for your Dedication, Sacrifice & Service!!!!!














This is also for the SCS Veteran's Day Challenge #WT296 - We Remember (11/11/10). I used yesterday's Sketch #Sc306 and Monday's CAS Challenge Colors (Olive, Kraft & Pink). This also fits the travel the world theme

This card is for my husband who is proudly serving as an Officer on active Duty in the US Army. After moving us to NY, we had to endure that dreaded Farewell as Daddy and his Troops left for the war in Afghanistan where they will be for the next year.

As an active military family, we have endured 3 prior deployments, but somehow, this was the absolute toughest thus far.  Please pray for our Soldiers to return home safely. :)

CARD  RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Courage & Honor; All Night Media MAP/World Globe Background
Paper: Stampin' Up Kraft & Olive Green
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Multiple Spellbinders, Starts CB EF, GOLD Star beads, Gold Pin (to hold Gold Text Charm)
Techniques: Dry Embossing

Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
