4th of july

I made this card for a co-worker of mine. She recently lost a friend in the Iraq war. Here is the article in the newspaper:,6591655.story

Very sad. He was only 30 years old, married and had three young children.

I am sending this sympathy card to my co-worker Suzanne and Her Husband Chris.

This card is also for the Midnight Madness challenge found here... so cool:


  1. That is a sad story! I am so sorry about your friend's loss! We have so many brave men and women that risk their lives every day to fight for our freedom and protect our country. I have such tremendous gratitude, respect and admiration for all of them and their loving and supportive families. My prayers are with them each and every day!! Your card is such a beautiful reminder that we should value and appreciate our gift of freedom!

    Thank you so much for playing with us at the MMSC this week!!

  6. Sorry to hear such sad news...Your card is so beautiful..I had to take a double take, because when I first looked at it, it looked life size... with your background I thought it was huge. It is just wonderful and you worked the sketch fantasticly. Thank you so much for playing with us :)
