Good Afternoon Friends,









I finally got some MOJO in today.  

I have to say, I just love our troops !!  I don't like the thought of war, but you have to hand it to our troops they are AWESOME.  I get teary eyed every time I see a soldier in uniform (man or woman) and I will go out of my way to say "thank you for your service to our country."
I hope they don't get sick of it, because I just do it.
One time I was on a flight and some soldiers got on the plane. I told the flight attendant I would like to pay for their meal, but don't let them know. She told me their airline always gives the troops their meals at no charge.  I fly that airline most of the time now-- not to get out of buying the meals (ha ha). I  figure if that airline will pay for the troops meals, somehow my airfare helps cover the cost. 

On to my card...the card base is 4.25 x 4.25
the cricut cut is from Create- a -critter 2, found on page 51. I cut it at 2.2. the colors are printed from the imagine - "Imagine more cards" cartridge. The red striped paper is from DCWV cut at 4.25 x 1.75.
the little tag is cut from my stash and I printed always remember with a teal colored gel pen.
The teal pearl and the blue and white striped twine is from Queen and Co., some of my goodies from the trunk show.  I used foam tape to pop up the hat.

  6. Love that hat. Did you get that from Uncle Sam? The papers and twine are perfect. I love that you tell our troops you appreciate what they do for our country. I think it to myself but have never expressed it to them but in the future I think I will. thanks for sharing your project with us at FCCB for the Memorial Day challenge. Kim Ogden
