Patriotic Cards

As news of Osama bin Laden being killed in an operation by American military forces spreads across the world, the strength and unity of the United States is being demonstrated.  Impromptu street parties and gatherings at 9/11 commemorative sites are happening right now.  It's evident that Americans feel a sigh of relief, accomplishment, and appreciation.   The pride demonstrated by Americans last night and this morning is reminicent of the outpouring of support after 9/11 - it's amazing!

Today I have some cards designed by Tami Mayberry that were intended to be shown later in the month for Armed Forces Day.  It's appropriate to share them today.   To the military men, woman and families: we do appreciate you.  Today and everyday. 

This "Thank-you" red,white & blue card is patriotic and perfect for sending to someone serving in the military.   Do you know someone serving?  I do.  My family friend Eric is a Navy Seal. 

Here's another.   This would be fitting to send to a family member, perhaps a wife who's husband is overseas serving.   I think it's important to thank the family members, too.   I can't imagine the stress and constant fear.  Families sacrifice so much, too.

Tami has stamped the flag heart from PSA Country Home Peel & Stick. It's a very versatile collection and this stamp is perfect for 4th of July and patriotic cards like these. 

Do you know anyone serving in the military?  Shout them out today!
