Bloggers Challenge-Red/White/Blue

This week for Bloggers Challenge, I went all Patriotic- since I have this awesome stamp set by Artistic Outpost that I do not use enough! 
AOBloggersChallengerwb52810
I used Technique Junkies Sanded Coordinations (red) and Cuttlebug Highlights (white) for the background. I stamped the image and sentiment in SU Night of Navy.  I added a few red stars on the sentiment panel.
Here is where I get a little Nostalgic:
Dad in Korea0694
That is my Dad in Korea. He was probably pulling a practical joke on someone……!

Thanks for stopping by today- I hope to see you Saturday for the Operation Write Home Stars and Stripes Blog Hop- I will have some non-fattening candy!
Have a great day,
Shelly

Awesome card...again! Isn't it a shame we let stamps like this go unused until solemn holidays like Memorial Day? I've actually been pretty good about using the stamp set from FCD with the soldier on it that I won from you. It probably wouldn't get much use if I didn't make cards for OWH or part of my daughter's unit in Afghanistan. I'm glad to see that you are participating in the OWH blog hop again on Sat. It's been so nice getting to know people like you that also support our military! See you on Sat.!
