You're My Hero

Good Wednesday morning everyone! Are you all happy that it is the middle of the week?

Today I am so excited to show you the card I made with one of the brand new releases from Doodle Pantry called Super Birdie. When I saw that one of the sentiments was 'you're my hero' I had to make this card with a patriotic theme and send it to Jon as his deployment card. I'm sure you agree that all members of the military are heroes but this one is just for my son.

The patterned papers that you see on this card are all from the Super Birdie set, too. I LOVE that Laurie will give us papers to match...it makes it SO easy to create with. The little stars on the blue strip are from the punched out border and although he is a boy I used some bling stars in the corners of my card.

The sketch for this card is from Carly's Sketch Challenge blog and while the sketch challenge has expired you need to hop on over there to see what the new sketch is as she always has great ones!

Alright there you have my card! Now hurry on over to the store (linked above and in my side board) to purchase your favorites and to see what my other DT sisters have made!

Love this Lori, I like the sentiment framed in the inside of the stars and what you did with the sketch. My thoughts and prayers will be with your son and all those who so valiantly serve. My son is also currently serving in Afghanistan. I'm sure he will so appreciate your card and the love behind it.
