Thinking of you


This is a card that I really threw together. I colored my eagle from 'Our Daily Bread' with Copic's then ran my 2 1/2 inch circle through the brayer, I mounted it on a 3 inch scalloped blue SU cardstock circle. I made the banner then stamped the sentiment in black. Very simple but certainly a statement that I will send to a soldier at OWH. I try to send one or two cards of gratitude to the soldiers just to let them know how much I appreciate what they are doing for us here in the U.S.

Personal Journey: This morning I took my daughter and son in law to the airport, they were catching a flight to LA to take a 14 day cruise to Hawaii. They were so excited and happy to be going. As I was writing this entry Vicki sent me a text message with a photo of the view from their balcony room of a beautiful bridge in LA. To be 42 years old and on their 12th cruise already wow. I can't find a travel partner to go on a cruise with me so I've only got 3 cruises under my belt and 64! Well everyone have a great mid-week and count your blessings, God is good.

This will make a perfect any hero card and will be cherished by the soldier who receives it. Beautifully done!

I love the way the red circle highlights the eagle. This is a very striking card. Love it and so will the troops.

What a beautiful card! Mmmm....a cruise sounds delightful right now, as we have OODLES of snow and ice! I read where PaperCrafts Magazine is having a cruise in 5 or 6 months - you might look into that - how much fun would a papercrafting cruise be??? lol!!! Thanks for joining in the challenge this week!!! Hope to see you back next week!

Wow -- I sure wish that I could "throw" together cards like you do, Jeanine! This is beautiful -- your eagle especially is wonderfully colored, and I love how it looks against the red background. Well, I have never been on a cruise, so I guess Vicki is taking both your and my share. If you're still interested in a couple years, Granny, I'll go cruising with you. :-) Hugs, Deedee
