A Cup of Tea


Well good morning and Happy Memorial day to everyone!  I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have served our country and one of those is my wonderful husband, Russ.  He was part of Dessert Storm and was proud to go and serve.  The second is my son-in-law who just returned from Afghanistan 5 weeks ago.  Thanks Scott for your service.  And to all the families who have lost love ones, I thank you for your sacrifice.  So I am sending to all of you "a cup of thanks."

I also would like to wish my daughter and her husband a happy one year anniversary today.  Even though they spent 7 months apart their 1st year, they are together and very happy.  May God continue to bless your marriage.

Now on to this card that I made on Friday evening, but am just now getting the time to post.  As soon as I saw the sketch over at Sketch Frenzy Friday I knew I would be using this stamp set and cutting out the big cup of tea.  Did not really think about posting it on Memorial day for a thanks to our veterans, but it worked out and now I am glad it did.

Here is a side view of this card!
