Heartfelt Thanks

Good Morning!
How was your Tuesday evening? Did anyone watch Lost? I started watching it a couple years ago (when I could watch all the episodes at one time) and I just don't know about this season...either watching it one Tuesday at a time is messing with me, I truly am just "lost" or they are going to have to work to tie up lots of loose ends. Okay, that's enough about that (I tried hard not to give anything away)...on with today's card!

My card today features Hero Ian. I was SUPER excited to see that The Greeting Farm was bringing him back and making him available as a single rubber stamp! I have loved this stamp from the moment he was first shown on the TGF blog. In fact, when he was first available it was through a pre-release that Marie was so generously offering to wives, mothers, sisters, brothers and other immediate family of our active military. Thanks to Marie I was able to get this awesome stamp and honor my little brother who was serving in the Navy. What a blessing!

So I'm back with a new Hero card and this time giving a shout out to All our Heroes! Without them and their service to be our protectors and our peacemakers we probably wouldn't get to enjoy things like the awesome Olympic games that are happening right now. And in thinking about our military and lifting them up, I pray too that all our troops would be able to come home very soon.

Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Such an incredibly beautiful and special card - about to sign off and this caught my eye (need to hit the blogs tomorrow!) and wanted to say thank you as well for the wonderful shout out to all our veterans! Our country is blessed to have them and all they do for us, and this is a wonderful thank you for them! x0x0x
