My Hero


I am pretty sure everyone knows I am a very proud Air Force mom and my son is truly my hero for so many reasons. But, I won’t gush on and on about how proud Andrew makes me.

When I saw the SU set Courage, I knew I HAD to have it, no matter what.

This card will end up being given to my personal hero one day, for no special reason, when he needs a gentle reminder that he truly is my hero.
My background is SU’s Hero wheel and SU Craft WW ink, my image is, of course, SU’s Courage. I stamped on WW, colored with chalks, sealed then used some Tim Holtz inks to distress my image.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!



Stamps: SU Courage, Hero

CS and DP: WW, Not Quite Navy, Real Red

Inks, markers and coloring tools: SU chalks, Tim Holtz

Extra goodies: SU Photo corner punch, spray sealer
