Thank You Veterans!

In honor of Veteran's Day, the girls over at Imaginisce were challenged to make a card.  Like many of us, my family has several members who have served in the armed forces.  As a matter of fact, I was actually born on an Air Force base. 

The card that I made is in honor of my cousin Ryan who served three tours of duty in Afghanistan as a navy fighter pilot, a true "Top Gun".  Not only is he a brave American hero, he is a wonderful husband and father to three.  He has a fabulous sense of humor too.

Supplies used: Imaginisce (Bon Voyage Collection, i-top & 22mm Punch and 1 brad daddy, i-rock tool & 3 mirror Glam Rocks, black Foam tape), Thank you sentiment (Bazill), Sending a Hug sentiment (American Crafts), Glue Glider Pro adhesive runner, Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Kraft cardstock (The Paper Company), Other: sewing machine, thread and hemp

I used the Bon Voyage collection for my card as it had the perfect plane!  Now I realize it's no F16 or equivalent and for that I apologize Ryan, but I still think its pretty cool. Aren't those sticker stacker's cool?  I also used some of our foam tape in black under my "Thank You" cloud. 

Today I also say a very humble thank you to my brother Gary for his brave service during the Gulf War.  I also remember my Father, Grandfather and Uncles who served this country.  God Bless all of our brave men and women who put their lives out there so that we may live in this country with all of our freedoms. 

Have a wonderful day!
