Freedom Is Not Free

I saw this pic on Pinterest and the note underneath said: "A reminder that whether you like to admit it or not, whether you agree with it or not, your freedom is not free. It never has been, it never will be. Someone gave all for YOU."

This pic totally stopped  me in my track and the quote is so true. It also reminds me that for all the soldiers that serve our country, their spouse, their kids, their parents serve with them. They're the ones that have to live with the day-to-day worries whether their wife, husband, or kid will be safe or not in the war zone. They're the ones who has to be a single parents while their spouse serve in another place.

In honor of Veteran's Day, May Arts is taken part of OWH Blog Hop. With the other girls in the DT, am sharing my card on May Arts blog. You can check out what we all created HERE.

And, this is my card:

I am using bleach to stamp my flower image and I really love the way it came out on this particular cardstock. Instead of just coming out washed white like the typical result when you used bleach for stamping, this one came out like teal color. LOVE!

Thank you to all our troops & their families for our freedom. Thank you for reminding me not to complain about minor things. If you have a house to come home to, have a bed to sleep in, have food to eat, really we have nothing to complain. We're luckier than so many people. Not just the troops (who often have to sleep in dirt, deal with harsh weather), consider the homeless, the people in poor country, the people who lives in war zone, you'll realize how blessed you are.

As I count my blessings, I am also grateful for this hobby. :) Making cards bringing me lots of joy. Here's another card for Cards That Care card drive, using the latest releases from A Day For Daisies.

Thanks for stopping by here and happy 11.11.11!! :)
