So Grateful

With this being Memorial Day weekend, I wanted to make a card to show how grateful I am to my husband and all those that serve, have served and will serve. This is truly a time to remember those that gave their all for our freedom.

My dad was on the submarines and my father-in-law was also in the navy. There are various family members through the years that have served as well...with the most recent being my nephew who will be leaving for the Marines after he graduates highschool next month.

Anyway, I searched all over for a sailor stamp. You can find lots of soldier stamps, especially now with the war, but sailors are -for some reason- hard to find. I was thrilled when I cam upon this one.

Stamps used: Saluting Sailor (Posh Impressions), Anchor (PSX), Shore Thing (SU), Cute Converse (SU) Clear Stamps (Studio G)
Paper: Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Bordering Blue & Confetti White-all SU
Accessories: Navy EP, Real Red Grosgrain, Styled Silver HodgePodge, Notch Corner Punch & Distressed Stripes CB folder.
