Welcome Home Specialist Matt!
Yesterday, I brought you a going away card. Today I am incredibly happy to bring you a welcome home card for a very special soldier. That's right Specialist Matt, from EOD, who has been serving in Afghanistan is now coming home to his family. Thank you God for this wonderful young man and the service he has performed for his country and fellow soldiers. Thank you God for bringing this special soldier home to his family once again. Our God is so good!
This card's inspiration piece was the Eagle Sticker from Karen Foster that I found at my local scrapbook and stamping store. I knew it would be perfect for the center of a medallion as soon as I saw it. The nestablilities, splendid circles, were just right for it. I also used a Martha Stewart border punch to add more of that wonderful cream fancy work border to this card. As you can see, this time I used a wonderful digital camouflage I found at Hobby Lobby instead of the traditional camouflage.
With the camouflage and the eagle I knew that I didn't want to add any other patterned paper but just colored card stock weren't working. One of my wonderfully creative daughters, suggested the embossing folder I used on the tan cardstock. She was right, it was just the right touch. My children often have suggestions for my cards or an inspiration that they share with me. It is wonderful that I can share my passion for creating cards with them. Between my Johnny Luv's totally enabling my hobby and my children's support I am so blessed.
