I'm always reminded, as is most everyone else, of September 11th, 2001 as soon as we roll out of August and into September. We have so much going on in our country now with the up and coming elections, the war on terror, and remembering September 11th. Here are a few patriotic cards I made to send to a few friends who have kids in the military. I printed off the USA flag from my clipart and adhered it behind the vellum tag. The bottom card was for a birthday for a friend in the military. I used the Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder for the background on the card.
