American Hero.. 8-)

Hi All! And a Very Happy Friday to you! Just one Question, Have you hugged a Veteran today? 8-) I sure have! Of course I have it pretty easy as My DH is what one might call a "retired" Marine..But, I don't actually think there is such a thing, since the saying goes," Once a Marine, Always a Marine! Semper Fi!"  8-)
Well, I made this card for My DH to first off, wish him Happy 236th Marine Corps Birthday and second,  to thank him for all he has done in service to our Country. And I sure hope you all will go out and Hug a Veteran today too and thank them for all they have done as well... I know they would greatly appreciate being remembered.

I actually got a lot of help on my card today from K&Co. They have some really great Armed forces type embellies.. So glad I picked up a couple of their Marines sets.. 8-) My mats and BG panels were made with a combo of kraft and red CS from my stash, my CB and Stars EF and dp's from K&Co's Americana Stack a well. My Eagle Globe and Anchor is a dimensional CS sticker also from K&Co that I matted up on a few more layers to give it that nice looking Award status and then popped it up with some foam tape. And to finish it all up I matted up a K& Co Marines embossed sentiment sticker and popped that up as well with a bit more foam tape.  Well, I sure hope he likes it, I hid it in his bag for work as a surprise.. Bethcha he thought I forgot.. lol  Can't wait to hear from him when he finds it.. 8-)

Hope you all have a Fabulous Day & Thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)
