It's a Hero's Hip Hop!

Today's Hip Hop is all about Hero's. With Memorial Day just around the corner, it's only fitting! As I think of the people in my life who I view as a hero I get a little teary eyed. I have sooo many 'hero's'. There are hero's in my church, community and family. Two hero's at the top of my list right now are my dear sweet hubby and my mom. My hubby and I just celebrated our 17th anniversary this last weekend. We have been through so much together and he has always been my rock. He works so hard and is such an honest, trustworthy, supportive man. I cannot imagine my life without him. Next is my mom. She had a difficult life in many ways, raising us kids on her own, ect. She lived a very honorable life and I'm proud to have her as my mom....and I miss her terribly....ok enough sappy stuff from me :)

My first project celebrates all the hero mom's out there. This stamp remindes me of Lauren and I just hanging out and playing. I thought the quote from 'you + me = happy' went perfectly with this new set "Little Me" both set's drawn by Tanis.
My next card is designed to send to a hero letting them know how you feel about them. I love this size of card and haven't made one in way tooo long! Used the KOM for this one.
Now hop on over to ***Heather's Blog***
