Here is my take on it:
I stamped and cut the plane out of some Doodlebug scraps I had and added it with foam tape to the punched circle which was mounted with foam tape, as well.
I am going to a benefit crop tomorrow for a real American Hero...Travis Mills who was critically injured in Afghanistan in April. He lost both arms and legs but is doing really well and is actually walking again with prostheses. If you'd like to read his story (and it is an amazing one and if you're American will fill your heart with patriotic pride) you can find it HERE. He has an amazing wife and adorable child and the positive outlook Travis and his wife have is amazing.
I've made these cards for servicemen to use for Operation Write Home. My father was career Army...I remember the year he spent in Viet Nam in the mid '60s...there was no Skype, internet, cell phones, etc. back then. We went a full year without hearing his voice. He wrote letters to my mother daily...but of course, it took a minimum of 7-10 days for them to be received so when the news was received it was old news. How technology has certainly improved a terrible situation when our loved ones are deployed far away for long periods of time.
As we approach Independence Day I want to express my appreciation to all the servicemen out there as well as to their wives at home. I always said wives of servicemen were the unsung heroes....
