Happy Hump Day everyone!!  I hope all are enjoying there week and nice weather.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who are under tornado watches or are still suffering from the aftermath of the tornadoes.  

Today I have another sneak peek to share with you: Home of the Free and Some Gave All to be released from Our Daily Bread Designs on Saturday, June 1.  With Memorial Day just being this past Monday and July 4th just around the corner, it seemed appropriate to make a card remembering all who have fought for our country's freedom.  Kelley has some awesome sets to be released with a patriotic theme.

I did want to say a special thank you to all of our service men and women who have given there lives and service that we may enjoy our freedoms, as well as to the families of those who have lost loved ones due to their service. You are and will not be forgotten!!

I made this card for TLC431 String it Up (at Splitcoast) , SC438 sketch designed by Cathy (at Splitcoast) as well as the ODBDSLC155 ODBD Shining the Light challenge which is to use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and any dies and Word Art Wednesday which is Anything Goes (this challenge is very uplifting and inspirational -each week they offer free scripture/word art

Thanks for stopping by and May God Bless you!!
