Happy 4th of July and God Bless America!

I am so excited to share with you today my first ever Design Team post on my very own blog.  For those of you who are new to blogging and crafting, the Paper Crafting World Design Team creates handcrafted greeting cards, scrapbook pages, altered items, ect. using cutting files and digi stamps from the Paper Crafting World collection.  We are here to show you a variety of different ways that these products can be used and just how easy it is to make simple, yet beautiful, handcrafted items.

Today, I am honored to share with you a card I made to highlight those who proudly serve in the U.S. armed forces.  As we celebrate Independence Day today, I would like to take time to personally thank those who make the sacrifice each day to keep America safe and free.  THANK YOU!  

And on a personal note, thank you Petty Officer Third Class Dalton Womack for your service.  I love and miss you.

The digi stamp on this card is a flag waving Uncle Sam and it can be found at  The stars were made using the Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge.

This digi stamp comes pre-colored or black and white if you prefer to color it yourself.  I think it is adorable!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Have a fabulous and safe 4th of July.  God Bless America! Now off to check on my house guests because as you know by now...

I am More Than a Mother.

Until next time.
