I am Grateful for....

The American soldier.  It takes a special kind of person to voluntarily put their life on the line day in and day out to ensure that our country remains the "land of the free"
My sisters and I recently became aware of an organization that sends mail and care packages to soldiers deployed that have no family back home and therefore don't receive anything at mail call.  It breaks my heart to think of these men and women who get up every day not knowing what circumstances they will face, wondering if anyone would care if they didn't return to face a new day.  So, we created and gathered cards and letters and sent them to these soldiers to hopefully brighten their day just a bit.

My card is created from a Kraft Die-Cut card base that I cut off and scored.  The image is from Captured Moments C1423.A few pin clips, a star from Milepost shapes and a teeny bit of organza ribbon decorate the front.
I look forward to seeing what you share with us at Heart 2 Heart this week and what/who you are grateful for.

Debi, beautiful card and I love your idea of sending goodies to those soldiers with no family back home. I can't imagine how heartbreaking that would be.

Your card is beautiful, and the generosity behind it even more so!
