Let Freedom Ring

I separated this post from my last felt weird putting a card with my Mini Dessert Burgers. So since I did all of my chit-chat in that post, I will get right to the card.

My brother is currently on a 365 day assignment in Qatar (did I spell that right?). While he is not on the front lines or immediate harm's way, he is still sacrificing for his country in my opinion and this is the closest he has been to the "action". He and his wife have to live apart for a year...this is considered a short assignment, so spouses are not allowed. That would just plain suck! Anyway, my son and I put together a care package for him filled with cookies, pictures, artwork, and just the utmost of fabulousness to send to him. This is the card that I included in the package. And would you believe, my brother even told me how much he liked the card and is displaying it on his desk! I felt extremely honored!

The paper, no idea the manufacturer, is from is the cheap thin stuff, but I liked the print and colors. The stamped images are from the Studio G dollar acrylic stamp sets. I picked up like 3 of them the last time I was there! Everything is fairly basic here. I used the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge #229 for the layout. I must be getting tired because I cannot think of anything else to say. So with that, I will close...should probably get to work on my daughter's thank you cards...ugh!
