DOODLE PANTRY AND SPLITCOAST ANYHERO CARD

Hi again.  I have so many cards to share and just seem to have a hard time getting time to post them.  This is my second post for today, so if you missed the first one, please scroll down to see it.

If you follow my blog, you know I am getting ready to go see our son graduate from Army Basic Combat Training. His Company has a Facebook page and his 1st Sergeant has been wonderful about keeping us informed about what is going on and providing pictures of the guys going through training. I know this takes a lot of time and effort so I really appreciate what he has done. It has certainly made this much easier to handle! 

Well, I decided to make an AnyHero card for him and I made a card for his Drill Sergeant (click here to see it).  On Thursday I missed the mail carrier, so I placed them in the mailbox for the next day.  That night, Grant called to have us extend our stay since he will have a weekend pass (woohoo) and I told him about the cards.  He almost had a stroke!!! I didn’t realize it, but if I send these cards, they will have him doing pushups for hours while they laugh at him! OMG!!!!  I went straight to the mailbox and retrieved those cards jiffy quick LOL!  I will just mail them when we come back and he is safely away from them.

This adorable image, sentiment and patterned paper are from Doodle Pantry’s Patriotic Turtle (precolored of course!).  I used Craftwell card stock and a strip of Recollections that I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Some Versacolor Cardinal ink was swiped over the embossing.

The frame was made using Spellbinders Classic Squares LG.  The 1st Sergeant rank insignia was hi-res clipart based upon graphic from Army Institute of Heraldry website that I downloaded from here.

This is the inside of the card with a Stamper’s Best stamp: True Soldier Rubber Stamp Operation Write Home Fundraiser StampersBest.com Rubber Stamps Fundraiser Stamps.
