HYCCT1527HERO ~Grateful~

Hello Blogger Friends and a happy Veteran's day to you all. I would like to thank all of the Veterans today for the service that has been given to the United States of America. We enjoy freedom here because of your service to our country.
Deceased veterans are also remembered on Veterans Day but the day is set aside to thank and honor living veterans who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime.
I have 6 brothers who served in the military as well as extended family. So my post today is dedicated to them. Thank You!!!
This is another card I created for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. This challenge #27 was hosted by the Fantastic Four.  They want us to make a card with a superhero theme.

I don't have any superhero images so I put off doing this challenge. But, as I thought about it a couple of thoughts came to mind.

One, is my nephew who served 4 tours in Iraq and he has a family. He is a superhero to our family.
Two, is being blessed to live in this great country of ours. We have access to some of the best medical care in the world. So we can get treatment when we need it.

With that in mind I made this "patriotic grateful" card and used this card as my inspiration. Instead of embossing, I used a word die.

To create my card, I used the sun-ray die from MFT and cut in red. Cut a navy rectangle from a Spellbinders die and added a white star cut from another MFT die. My grateful word is a die from Paper Trey ink.
Well, Blogger friends that's my card for today. Time to get started with my long list of chores. So until next time........God bless.
Card Details:
Paper: whisper white, real red, night of navy 
Paper Size: A2 
Accessories: Sun Ray Die & Blueprints 18 (MFT), rectangle die (Spellbinders), Thanksgiving word dies (PaperTrey Ink)
