Awesome cards. Your paper piecing with the red gingham stripes is wonderful. I have been struggling to come up with an idea for a card for the granddaughter of a friend who just entered Marine boot camp. Your card with the stars gave me the inspiration I need - thank you for that.

Looks like a card that was made only to use the die cut. Did not like.

Louisa said...

Not too keen on Patriotic style cards. but this would be fabulous for service member families. I scrolled down and LOVE the slimline sympathy card with Graphic 45 paper and the butterfly. Simply gorgeous and could not be any easier!

Great cards and so patriotic. Would be a nice way to thank a Veteran. Love the paper and the designs.

Love all your cards! The one that says, "Thank you for your service." Simply put, it says it all; this card touched my heart. I am proud to be an American living freely, and all those who served, and are serving, I owe them my life. "Thank you for your service."

Colleen said...

What an absolutely wonderful patriotic set and such lovely cards you have made.

Too often we forget to thank the veterans who fought to give the freedoms we enjoy (most of the time, before Covid 19). Fantastic tools to say "Thank You".
