My HERO & Blog Candy Alert


As you know, my husband recently left for a lovely, extended, Tropical vacation in Afghanistan which could explain why I haven't been my talkative self. Today's card was created for him as I'm sure many of my cards in the next 6/7 months will be. I combined 3 different challenges into this card. The sketch came from 2sketches4you (blinkie on my side bar), The color combo was this week's color challenge at Splitcoast and the Clean & Simple challenge was to create a Masculine card.

What a great card, Justine. It really says it all when it comes to what I think about our men and women in the service. My prayers are with you and your family. I did love your reference to your hubbys extended tropical vacation. You haven't lost your sense of humor.

Hugs!
