dustin pike's freebie and another card...

Dustin Pike put up some new freebies to download! He wanted to thank his 1000 followers... visit his blog here and become a follower too!
The 1000 followers freebie set included a cute little bear with wings leaning over a sign... as soon as I saw this picture I thought of a military wife, thus inspiring my most recent card.
I think I will use this card in the Let's Get Cookie Recipe On DDS Challenge Blog
Recipe = DDS Image, 3 Designer Papers, Ribbon, and Bling...
And here is the finished project...

I had a chance to play with my new favorite crafting tools also... my embossing items. I got the versamarker pen out and used it to color in the wings and then added the kaleidoscope embossing powder. I love the Embossing Heat Tool which I got for only a couple bucks using a 40% off coupon at JoAnns.

Inside the card is the Military Spouse's Prayer...

Lord, Give me the strenth of heart to see, The difference in duty and his love for me, Give me the understanding to know, that when duty calls, he must go, give me the patience to know in my heart, that he is serving his country and doing his part, Give me the strength to carry on, when he's working late or must be gone, Give me a task to do each day, to fill the time while he is away, Give me others who can share, the ups and downs and who'll really care, Give me the wisdom to get me through, And Lord, while our family is here, Keep us healthy, safe and ful of cheer.
