You're My Hero Card



Hello and Happy Memorial Day to you! I made this card today to send to my deployed sailor. I know it'll make him smile! I wanted to create a sort of cheeky "pin-up" for him and this is what I came up with. I used Once Upon A Princess for my cheeky gal. And thanks to the new hide contour feature on the Gypsy, stamping her face with the adorable Princess Face Assortment was super easy!

Honestly I think this is the cutest face EVER! Kathy at PeachyKeenStamps.com so TOTALLY ROCKS!!! I would just DIE without my PK stamps! I'm going to go out on a limb and say this may be my favorite card EVER!!! I hope "my hero" agrees with me. Oh, the "you're my hero" stamp is from the Everyday Occasions set by MyPinkStamper. I hope you're having a fabulous Memorial Day. I have spent the day craftin' and watching my beloved Chicago Cubs. ;o) I want to say a special thank you to my husband's ship the USS CARNEY DDG-64 for your service to our great nation. And to those that have given their lives for our freedom, I am eternally grateful.

*God Bless America...and YOU!*
Nikki
