Freedom Isn't Free

Happy Saturday Everyone! I hope that your weekend is off to a fabulous start! I haven't had tons of time to craft lately because I am preparing to move into my new house, which is finally finished!!! I am beyond excited and I can't wait to start the next chapter of my life in my new home! I will be moving towards the end of next week, so I hope to make a quick move so that I can begin crafting in my new, larger crafting space!!!

With all of my excitement about the house, I did need to take some time to do things to take my mind over the stress of having to get everything packed up and ready to go. This week over at Getting Cricky with K. Andrew, Kristal is having a  Simply Sunday challenge to make cards for the troops! Did I mention that she has AMAZING stamps that are manufactured here in the good ol' USA!!! Not only that but Kristal donates $1 from every stamp set sold to charitable causes! How fabulous is that! I highly recommend that you go over to K.Andrew Design's store and check out her stamps. I promise you won't be disappointed. Now on to my card

The tanker was cut from Boys will Be Boys and the star pin/medal was cut from Rock Princess

The sentiment is from K.Andrew Designs- Positive Thoughts
Support Our Troops embellishment and yellow ribbons from K & Company

Shine On sentiment is from K.Andrew Designs- Splashtastic Summer

Patterned paper is from K & Company. All other paper is from my craps.

I really like how this card is simple, but at the same time says so much! I hope you enjoy! I am also entering this card in the Cricut 360- Challenge #5 Transportation
Thanks for stopping by and I love reading all of your comments!

Until Next Time...

Crafty Hugs,
