Hello and Happy Veterans Day!   Today I would like to share a special thank you card and tutorial with you, featuring the beautiful Poppy Gems stamp set from Penny Black Inc.   Although I made this card for a dear and sweet elderly neighbor of ours who is a Marine Corps veteran, I would like to extend my gratitude to all our men and women in uniform and salute them for their service to our country.  To say “Thank You” is simply not enough for all that our veterans did to keep our country safe and defending our freedoms.  But I would like to say it anyway.  “Thank You Veterans!”
