Thank You for Your Service, Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello friends!
My husband and I just got back from Arizona. We got to see all of the bucket list items while there, Grand Canyon, Antelope Cavern, Horseshoe Bend, numerous hikes etc. My son and his wife took their honeymoon in Disney at the same time we were gone. While there he was selected as veteran of the day while there.  He was part of the flag folding and color guard ceremony.  He was touched and extremely proud, and so was this mama. 
So Whimsy Stamps had great timing with their newest stamps and dies celebrating our military.  As a DT member, it touches my heart that they created these sets. I used the new Sheroes Die set.  It was intended for a female military person, but I knew I wanted to save these cards for my son.  The edges of the circles have crackle paste on them and once dry I rubbed some brown distress crayon in the cracks.  The paper is part of the new Military Slimline Paper Pack.  I did a bit of machine stitching on the edges and distressed them. A few stars and twine finish off the card. 
Sheroes Die and the Slimline Military Paper Pack was used again here.  I layered some vintage tags that were splattered and distressed. I added a red poppy and burlap. 
And here is my son graduating from the Nuclear Program in South Carolina.  So proud of this kid of mine!
Be sure to stop by Whimsy to see the full release!
Thank you for making me part of your day!
