Thanks for Protecting Our Freedom!

Hello!  Remember back in the summer when Donna and I made all the patriotic cards for the Blue Star Mother's president to sell at the convention?  Well, we added Donna's email on the back of each card as a contact.  And ... a lady from Ohio contacted Donna about us making her some more cards!  We made eight cards for her.  Three of those were repeats of the cards that were in the original group that we made for the convention.  So, between today and tomorrow's post,  I will show you the other five.  The ones for today are the two additional patriotic ones she asked for.  She specifically wanted one for a Marine and so this is what we came up with ... enjoy!
I am so glad that Donna had this stamp in her stash, as this was perfect.  The sketch is one we did a while back to send to the troops.  But, with different papers and stamps, it looks totally different.  I like how this one came out!   She also wanted one that said "I salute you" and said a card with a flag would work ... but, flag images are so hard to find, at least one that is an open design so that you can make it red, white and blue as it should be.  Looking for a good image, we came across a flag sticker and used it!  Don't tell the "stamping police"!  Hee, Hee!  We also reworked a card I had made earlier in the year  ... here it is ... enjoy!
Looking online for something else, I found a Cricut (which Donna owns) cartridge called United We Stand that all kinds of flags, words, and patriotic images that we are thinking that we could incorporate into our cards.  Of course, I ordered it.  No fear from the "stamping police" here!  Hee, Hee! 

Tomorrow, I will have the other three cards to show you!  See you then!
Happy Stamping!
