Patriots Remembered...

Happy weekend!! I'm beyond excited to be hanging in my craftroom!! And I've finally gotten around to coloring one of the cutest images from Sassy Cheryl's Digis. I love, love, LOVE so many of Cheryl's images because they have such a wonderful "vintage" feel to them...and, as I get older, I feel as though I'M becoming more and more "vintage" myself. LOL!! So...this card is going to our only grandson, Brody, and his dad (my eldest son, Andy), to wish them a happy belated 4th of July! Andy served in the U.S. Navy more than 10 years ago, during the Kosovo I thought it was a perfect card to honor him and all of the other young men and women in the military.

This darling little image is called "Patriots Remembered" and is available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's online store. If you haven't visited Cheryl's store, you really MUST. So many adorable images...and because they're digis...instant gratification! hehehehe!!

The DPs are from Bo Bunny's Liberty Collection...and the cardstock is from Stampin' Up, Real Red and Night of Navy. The ribbon is Real Red too, also from SU. I used a scalloped Nestabilities die so I could enter this cutie into this week's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #71.

I kept this card pretty simple...colored with Copics...and just a few stars cut with Sizzix dies and a few rhinestone stars as embellies. The inside is simple sentiment, just space for a personal note.

That's it for me, kids. I'm off to do more coloring!! Whoohoo!! Have a great weekend! Until next time...
