Thinking of you

Celebrating Veterans Day and sending heartfelt thank you's to all our service people and veterans.  Thank you for your service to our country.  At parades I love standing and clapping for the veterans marching in the band.  These are the people who are truly our heroes.

My son is a veteran of Iraq.  He was deployed in 2008-2009.  He was in the 82nd Airborne in the United States Army.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is dedicating this week's challenge to thinking of you.  I used Mojo Monday's sketch this week.  I made a leaf card using brown, kraft and orange cardstock.  The orange cardstock is run through and inked cuddlebug swirl folder.  I like this simple step to give texture to the card.  Do you remember mullberry paper?  This comes from the depth of the craft room but I still love using it.  Wetting the edges of the mullberry paper and tearing it to give it the frayed edges.  I fussy cut the leaf and added it.  Then I stamped just having one of those thinking of you days to complete the card.
I worked today getting my cards ready for

What a wonderful project and thank you gals for collecting the cards and sending them to the nursing homes.  My family sat down and signed the cards together.  I hope the cards will bring joy to their hearts and smiles to their faces.
I am posting this card to:


  1. Mulberry paper - that's a product you don't see very often anymore! Maybe we should bring it back in style. ;)

  2. Thank you and your family for your service - I can't imagine how hard it would be to see your child deployed.
    Your card is AWESOME and mulberry paper - I love that stuff, and don't use it enough!
