Forget Prince Charming, I Have a Soldier

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Today's project was inspired by Cricut 360's Hero Challenge.    I guess you would say I come from a very military family.  Out of six kids in my family, three of us were in the military (me, my sister and one of my brothers).  Although I am no longer in the service, in so many ways I still am, as my husband is career military.  We actually used to be in the same unit, which is how we met.  We were married in June of 2005 and he deployed to Iraq that September.  The first year and half of or marriage was spent apart. Due to all of my experience in the military, I have tremendous respect for service members and their families.  This card was made for my own military hero, my husband.
