I made this card for yesterday's sketch SC254 and Tuesday's CC244 Very Bravo Kraft. Since yesterday was Veteran's Day I wanted to make a card to send to a friend's son who is in Iraq, thanking him for serving our country. I saw the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge on Sunday with a challenge to say thanks and send a card to the troops but wanted to wait until Veteran's Day since I felt it was appropriate and fitting.

Candace shared this verse:

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

The challenge for this week at Stampin Sisters in Christ is to make a patriotic-themed card for a soldier and as a bonus, donate it to Operation Write Home, so that a soldier may be encouraged by your words of thanks.

Here is my creation:

stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- In God We Trust, One Nation Under God, Doodles 3 Friendship
Paper: very vanilla CS, Basic Grey dp, craft, Bitter Chocolate
Accessories: ribbon, paper piercer, sewing machine, distressed stripes embossing folder

Sorry for the quick and late post. It has been an incredibly busy day and I would really love to take the time to visit your blogs. Hope you are having a great day!!
