A Thank You To Real Life Heros

Because it is the 4th of July today, I wanted to share a card with a couple of Mo Manning images.

A friend of mine asked me to make a card for her son who had just received a promotion.
I chose to go back in time for the card. She has a picture of her son when he was small in an outfit much like this little guy. Since he has a little sister I thought merging the two images would make a great card. My friend cried (happy tears) when she saw the card. It made my day and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to make a card for a real life hero. Thank you Mike Henderson because of you I can live free in the country I love.

 I had to make this card up to give to Mike also. I had fun making these cards. I hope as you celebrate your 4th of July you will thank a vet an pray for all the men and women who put their selves in  harms way for each of us.
I am entering these cards in the following challenges:
My Song:
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam
Born on the Fourth of July
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
Yankee Doodle came to London
Just to ride the ponies
I am the Yankee Doodle Boy
