Bloggers Challenge-Patriotic

  Happy Fourth of July to all of my American Blogging Friends- and Happy Canada Day to my Canadian Blogging friends! 
  My cards today both celebrate Patriotism.  The first is a digi I found yesterday at Stamp-n-Doodle and it is a freebie too- there was another freebie for Canada Day as well.  I LOVE this digi as it is one I can send to the soldiers to mail home to their loved ones over and over.

I sponged the sky with Blue Bliss after clear embossing the clouds in the sky, I added color with Copic markers and sponging with SU Creamy Carmel and Old Olive. The sentiment is SU from retired Land of the Free. The CS is Black, Copper and Artichoke.
Hats off to Stamp-n-doodle for such a great freebie!

Next, I used another freebie digi image from the Operation Write Home blog hop Memorial Day weekend-a freebie by KLM.  The image is colored with Copics B24, R24, E31, E33, E97, E99, C1 and 100.  The dog tag digi is by Jessica Lynn and the sentiment is from Firecracker Designs by Pamela
