Stars & Stripes

You can never adequately thank the limitless number of men and women that serve in our United States military that protect our country and fight to ensure our freedoms. You can never adequately honor the memories of those lives lost on September 11, 2001. You can never adequately pay tribute to the firefighters, police officers, rescue workers, and volunteers from that day. For the soldiers and the civilians who gave then and continue to give now, for the the ones who haven't survived and for the families that continue without them, we want to say our small and simple thank you. One thank you just isn't enough, but if one becomes 100 and 100 becomes 1 million and 1 million becomes a chorus then maybe, just maybe, we will have begun to scratch the surface of what these men and women deserve. 

This card is dedicated to our family members who have proudly served this country.

Richard W. Croteau, Jr., Rocky D. Hupp, Nathan C. Blanton, Stanley L. Croteau, Bobby Hutson, Aaron Mensing,  Jack Feathers, David E. Holland, Alfred Fry, Gary Holland, William Holland, & John A. Holland. 

This stamp is from the Pure Innocence collection, "Love You With All My Heart."

These are the Copic Markers that I used to color the image.
