Home of the Brave

Coffee of the Day - Maple Cream

Today is a challenge over at The Stamping Boutique that truly touches my heart.... it's called "Home of the Brave" and it's to honor our soldiers who have fought so bravely on our behalf. Veteran's Day is in just a few days here in the USA and Remembrance Day as well in Canada. no matter how you feel about war in general, it would be a shame to not show love and support to the thousands upon thousands of men & women who bravely put their lives on the line each and every day for our freedoms.

My card is just a little way to say 'thank you' for all they do. the star image comes from The Stamping Boutique, senti from Create with TLC, papers from K & Co. Americana. I used some old buttons from a pair of shorts about to be thrown out and sprayed papers with walnut gold glimmer mist. air mail baker's twine comes from Etsy. it's a simple card, but one filled with lots of love and gratitiude! :)
