Can you think of anyone that you feel this way about or even anyone that you don’t even know, but inside you feel they are hero’s in your heart? I can think of one and then I think of many. This well meaningful stamp set from which one of the images I used on this card today, is from My Hero STAMP SET. Page 209 in our Annual Catalog and there are amazing images in this set to fit many Holidays we celebrate here. This is a special stamp set because in case you’re not familiar Stampin’ Up! the company I am an independent demonstrator with, every year designs and offers in the Annual Catalog a featured stamp set of which $3 from every set purchased by both customers and demonstrators is donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Stampin’ Up! and their demonstrators donate time and money to support the House. SU has contributed to date over $1.5 Million dollars to RHMC and their network of local RMHC Chapters throughout the U.S. It’s a wonderful way to spend time with the families, coming together to create and make cards for their loved ones receiving medical treatment far from home.
Demonstrators from all of the United States volunteer their time at the Houses by bringing card supplies to offer some creative time for the families. It is appreciated by the families and the recipients enjoy their wonderful cards given them. It brings such joy for everyone involved and SU is so very generous to this awesome charity.
I used this image out of the set today because when we all stop to think on it, we surely can think of someone that is or was our #1 Hero. My dear sweet hubby poo, is my Number 1 Hero! I used to always tell him, “you’re my hero” when he did something quite extraordinary for me in the way of my “honey do” lists or something that was near and dear to my heart. He is MY hero in life because of the the man he is and the father he is to the young adults we have. I could go on for many days describing ways of why he is, but I can also think of the BRAVE women and men in our incredibly amazing military that put their lives on the line for our freedom each and every day. They are HEROES. My heart is so very thankful for what they sacrifice for us.
This card is for them. I can also think of all the Law Enforcement and the FireFighters that also risk their lives to protect the citizens of our Country each and every day. Leaving their families in hopes of returning later that night. Wow. My eyes well up. So many have fallen in the line of duty lately that it grips my heart to the core. These men and women are ALL #1 HEROES. I wish I could make millions of this card to send out or pass out to show how much they are appreciated even if it is just a card with heartfelt words.
I didn’t really exactly mean to write a novel today (thanks to those that stuck it out), but I couldn’t help it. I really have so many heroes to thank and to acknowledge that it would take way longer than these few paragraphs. I think you should take a peek on page 209 of our Annual Catalog at this stamp set. If you have it in your home to create with, I think you’ll enjoy it. I love that this image I used today fits into our new punch! Makes is super quick and super easy.
I used Night of Navy for the card base, designer series paper from the Moroccan pack and Very Vanilla for the Lots of Labels framelits. For a wee bit of accent, I used the very pretty Very Vanilla ribbon with the gold glittery insert to add some contrast. I really like it, I haven’t used that ribbon too much, but I will because it is so pretty and I love the width of it, too. Not too wide.
Can you see it here better? I love the Delightful Djon and the Night of Navy together. It’s classy and sharp.
I hope you take a look and get this set. You’ll be happy you did! Thanks for stopping and sorry for the rambling of my thoughts behind my card today, but I just couldn’t help it. 🙂 Hugs to you all!
