Thanks to our Troops!!!

Hello my crafty friends and Happy Memorial Day to you! We returned from our trip this afternoon and in the spirit of Memorial Day I decided to make up some cards for our troops:




I made 30 cards to send out to our troops!



I used the Stand and Salute cartridge and cut the USA at 2". Then I used the "stars" Cuttlebug folder to emboss the USA. I used a couple of different papers for the background, attached the USA, stamped "thank you", tied twine around the top, and used foam dots for dimension.









THANK YOU to all who have, do, and will serve this amazing country that we live in! And thank you to all the wives who have husbands that serve! I feel so blessed to live in the USA! <3 Kristy

Here is a nice way to say Thanks to the Troops. The Grateful Chics will donate a Patriotic Grateful Bead Strand to a soldier every time one is purchased. This charitable partnership is through Operation Gratitude, a non-profit that send care packages to our Troops. The soldiers will know someone cares, remembers and is grateful for their service with these tokens of Gratitude. Check them out here: http://shop.gratefulchics.com/Patriotic-Star-6-length-STAR09P.htm
