Our freedom was not free...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I hope you've had a wonderful week so far!

Today's card may look a little familiar to you as I've made a card with this image before.  You can see it HERE.  I am finally making and sending out cards to the families of THESE soldiers.  I already had three of the eagles printed out so I just colored them and got to work making the cards.  The eagle image is from the Doodle Pantry store and is called Patriotic Eagle

I used Carly's sketch for this card loving the idea of the red star stripes with the blue background.  I think overall this works so beautifully together.  I used the same sentiment inside of this card as I did the other I linked you to above. 

I also want to mentioned that my time as a design team member for Sweet 'n Sassy stamps has come to an end.  I've enjoyed playing with all the images and appreciate the opportunity to design with them!

Thought of the day:  "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains; it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world." C. S. Lewis
