On My Honor

"On my honor, I will try to serve God and my country, to help people at all times and to live by the Girl Scout law." That's the GS promise, folks! Yep, I was a Girl Scout and I said that promise in front of my troop (friends and parents) so many years ago...there is also a GS law too (as mentioned in the promise). As I grew up I forgot about the scouts, the traditions and the badges...but I have not forgotten the words. It's funny how you don't think about something for so many years and yet you realize you still try and live your life this way. Of course I fail constantly, I'm only human, but deep down my heart has always been to serve God and to help people at all times. And I've come to know that being part of a team is invaluable, specifically the one I'm on with my husband. He is amazing. So kind, so encouraging, so calming, so smart, and above all--Loving. Today is our fourth anniversary and while I never had any intention of dedicating this Cute Troop card to him (LOL), as I'm writing this post, I can't help but be so thankful for the team that we make up together and for how he helps me every day to try and live out that promise I made as a Scout so many years ago.
Thanks so much for popping over to check out my card today. I would love it if you'd leave a comment about the special "teammates" in your life!
Lots of Hugs,

Deets: (more deets to come) Badges were printed off net c/o
Stamps: The Greeting Farm Cute Troop
Paper: K & Company Girl Scouts DP, Crate Paper Little Sprouts, Soft Suede

Wow, sweetie - what a beautiful testimony you have written and no truer words could be spoken about how you carry the GS Law with you through-out life (former GS here and now mom to a GS!) I think that you have done more than justice to this adorable Cute Troop set, right down to the authentic looking badges! (and thanks for the reminder for needing to sew dd's on her vest!) Big hugs!

Happy Anniversary, Kadie! Hope you will enjoy this weekend and will have a wonderful time!
Your card is so precious! When I was reading your post I was almost crying, so touchful...
You created a very beautiful card! I really love the badges you added!
Special "teammates" in my life... My husband, my son - they are always there when I need and I think together we are a good team!
And if talk about gilrs - TGF Stamping Team is one that close to my heart!

I was never a girl scout, be always wanted to be. My Mom would tell stories of camp outs, and all the fun things she did as a girl scout. What a wonderful tribute! This is a fabulous card!

Happy Anniversary to you and DH! Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh how sweet! I think your husband is pretty fortunate to have you as well. Happy Anniversary! This card is so sweet and seeing those badges gave me the idea to go dig up my daughters old uniform and confiscate some of the badges she no longer uses.

Kadie this is absolutely the cutest and the story behind it is too. Your DH is blessed to have you too. I hope you had a wonderful anniversary weekend.
