Home Sweet Home


One of the sayings you hear a lot in the Army is “Home is Where the Army Sends You”.  And it really is.  We are no longer in the Army, but dare I say, I actually miss some of it.  I miss how when the moving van pulls up all the neighbors come out to greet you and welcome you into the neighborhood.  I miss how everyone understood where you were coming from because we have all been through deployments, TDY’s, when our spouse was in the field training, or when they are out late at night getting in those flight hours. I really enjoyed our time in the Army.  I especially enjoyed our neighbors.  When your in the military your “extended” family became your neighbors.  So, I made this card in remembrance of all of those great memories.  

This card measures 7 inches by 4 inches.  I used my cuttlebug and nestabilities to make the frame.  I actually had to use the rectangle nestabilities twice because it wasn’t long enough to make the whole frame.  I also stamped my truck, colored with copics and then cut out and put on foam dots.  For the road I drew a road on scrap paper and then placed it on the white cardstock and then sponged my grass.  I removed the road and then colored it in with black and gray copics.  For the white stripes I used Martha Stewarts opaque markers in icing white.  I then put my brads on my frame, tied my ribbon and my circle tag (nestabilities) onto the frame.  Then I put the frame on foam dots.  I also used Martha Stewarts edge punch and sponged the edges.  Put it all together and there you go.

Thanks for stopping by and going down memory lane with me, have a great day!
