First, I would like to take a moment to wish everyone a happy 4th of July. I hope you're all able to enjoy this celebratory day with friends and family, and that it's a happy day for you. It was brought to my attention in a letter-to-the-editor that someone I know wrote to our local paper, that approximately less than one percent of all human beings born on this earth over the last 7 thousand years have enjoyed or do enjoy the freedoms that us Americans are privileged to have. What a thought!!!!!!
I hope that you will remember the sacrifices of those who have come before us, and those who now serve this great country. My own husband has been deployed for the last several months and won't return home until September, and we are so thankful for him for what he does each and every day to help preserve the freedoms we enjoy in this great country. As a veteran, I also know of the sacrifices ofour men and women serving in the military, missing the moments that bring us all joy, those precious moments/occasions in the lives of those they love, as they are gone across the seas in service to the rest of us. Take a moment to thank a veteran today, if you can!
Now, on to a simple card. I CASE'd THIScard by Renee, who is on the Summer DT over at Card Patterns. Her card is lovely - check out her blog and let her know! I ended up creating a sketch based off of this card and it is part of my Stamps-in-the-Mail projects for last month.
