"Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
My card is straightforward and simple. The sentiment is computer generated. The base card is made using the direct to paper technique. Using a turguoise ink pad, I lightly ran over the top of the star impressions which were made with a new CB folder. I added the ribbon and brads to finish it off.The card isn't red, white, and blue because I didn't automatically think of soldiers this time when I thought of making a hero card. I've been impressed lately with the people in everyday life who are living that same definition. For example, my cancer-fighting friend's husband and children, the wife of an Alzheimers patient, a son caring for his elderly parents, or a teacher in an area devastated by economic decline who encourages children to hope in their futures may not be facing death, but they are offering up their lives to love others.
If you'd like to join us in thanking an American soldier, please go to the Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge blog to add your card to our sample list and to receive more information on encouraging the troops. Thanks so much for your interest in my blog and the challenge. Enjoy your week......Hugs, Laurie
