For my project today, I created a card for my Dad.  Dad served in the Naval Reserves and is very proud of his service to this great country.  With Veteran's Day coming up, I wanted to send Dad a card to let him know how proud I am of him and his committment to this country.  I also made and sent cards to both my boys who served in the Army. 

For this card, I used the Stand and Salute Cartridge - some brads from Paperwishes and some stickers from my scrapbox.  I used pop-dots to make some elements stand out.  Thanks so much for taking a peek. 

I have my own special blog candy to everyone who takes a peek today.  I'm offering $10 off My Memories Digital Software - and another $10 coupon to the store.  All you have to do is enter the code STMMMS4552 at to get this discount. Or you can click on the link on the left side of my blog! (a $20 gift for you).  There are plenty of freebies and lots of inspiration - please check it out!
