Happy 4th of July!

Just a quick post to share a card I made in honor of the USA.  Happy Birthday, America!

I was recently introduced to Vera Lane Studio and immediately fell in love with all of Janet's quirky little characters.  You will meet several more of them in the near future😁.  Here's her Etsy store and here is my card using half of Bit by Bit -

I also want to thank all of our service men and women for all they do and have done.  I met a young man today who is serving in the Middle East.  He had been traveling for 2 days to get back here to be with his father who had just undergone open heart surgery.  He will be here for one week and then that long flight back to the desert.  He was smart, kind, appreciative, loving, helpful and could be doing any number of other things with his life, yet he chose to serve his country.  I am very grateful, I realize freedom comes at a very high price.  We all need to protect it. 

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Awesome card must check out the store :)

  2. This is such a fun card to celebrate Independence Day, Brenda! What a remarkable young man you met, we sometimes take our Armed Forces for granted, forgetting that they are humans like us with their own family trials to cope with as well as the stresses of active service. I pray that his father recovers from his surgery and that they will meet again soon.

  3. Gorgeous card, Brenda! I love how you made the stars and stripes background and little Bit is adorable! Beautiful words about the young man, too. x

  4. Hi Brenda. I really love your card and must have the star die! So glad you found Vera Lane Studio digi stamps! Thanks for reminding us of those who serve to protect the liberty we celebrate!

  5. I love this! So wonderful.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I would be happy to hear your thoughts or answer any questions. I pray your day is full of all you love!
