Thank You Hero!



I made this fall thank you card in honor of my brother who serves as a Medivac Pilot in the U.S. Army and has served 3 tours thus far.  At Friday Mash-Up the challenge is to give thanks, to anyone, or someone random and I though with the holidays upon us, as we get ready to share good food and make memories with our families and friends its a good time to send out a thanks to all of the men and women who have given up holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and just every day life with theirs. 

The challenge over at Meljens Designs is to use brads so I used one of Meljens incredibly cute and fun new release images, colored him with my copics and embellished with two little button brads.  He's so darn cute and I'm a sucker for snowmen!  I cut out the image, the sentiment, and the backround with the Curved Rectangles Spellbinder dies.  I added a little bit of Tim Holtz distress ink on the edges.  Embellished with two fall leaves and a brad and drew on some stitching.

Thanks again to all of our hero's!

What a great idea! And our service men and women do deserve our thanks! Thank you for making such a cute card. That little snow guy is cute!

This is a fantastic card and I thank your brother for his service! I'm a Navy veteran and my husband is retired Navy so I spent many yrs as a military wife also...I know firsthand how a simple "thanks" can really make a difference.

Thanks so much for joining us at The Friday Mashup!

I don't know what is cuter the Sentiment or the Snowman.. I love them both! This is a great Veteran's Day card.. My Family has been Navy for almost 17 years.. I think more people need to thanks those that serve as well. I bet your Brother will love this. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.
