"K" is for Kindness



I don't know where my head has been but I was supposed to have this posted for the 1st of July, but for some reason I must have spaced it out completely! This last month has been a tough one. My younger brother lost his wife to cancer. While on vacation in Florida she stood up and fractured her leg. She had to have the leg pinned, and a plate put in. once she was released from the hospital they returned home. She continued to decline in health  and finally a local Dr. ordered a MRI and it was discovered she had cancer throughout her body. Two weeks later she was gone. This has been a very difficult time for my brother and we are all saddened by his and our loss. I flew back to Georgia to be with him and it was there I saw the kindness of the people who know and love my brother and those who loved his wife. So, this challenge from ABC Challenge came at a perfect time. Our letter is "K" for Kindness and our lovely sponsor is Lacy Sunshine. The cute stamp is Emmilou Boo.
You can click on the link to find her in Lacy Sunshine's shop. We are also being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl !
I am sorry to say that I forgot to add my ribbon to this card, but if you check out this fun shop you will find many fun things you will need to add to your stash!  I hope you will all join us for this fun challenge and show kindness along the way. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Proud To Be An American (Lee Greenwood)
If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I'd thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can't take that away.
And I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, there's pride in every American heart,
and it's time to stand and say:
I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
