Thanks to Our Military

It is time to start a new box for OWH and of course I always added some cards of thanks.  This digital thanks letter is so great for children to write a letter to one of our service men or women.  But I thought it would be fun to "shrink" it and use it on the front of my card.  (Oh, I just got an idea - I'm going to print some up 4 x 5 and put them on the inside of some of my thank you cards and actually write on them.  Won't that be cute?)  But back to the card.  Just a little bit of colored pencil.  The buttons are actually covering digital stars. I love buttons and especially shaped ones.   These are my last three stars and unfortunately I have no idea where I bought them. (Insert sad face)  Dps are just pieces in my stash.  The base is Kraft from the Kraft Outlet.
The sketch is Your Next Stamp

Just a note - the Meljen Design store is closing the end of the month.  This digital is a freebie.  If you happen to like my idea, you will need to pick this digi up before the end of March.

  8. Love your simple lay-out and card design. I am grateful that you joined us in our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you an inspirational verse as spoken by Jesus to them that believe from John 14:21 and it says, "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." A blessed week to you always.
