Happy Birthday America and THANK-YOU TO ALL THAT HAVE SERVED

Hello world!  I am alive and breathing here in hot South Carolina.  Did you even notice that I have been gone?  Now I want to hear a big Aww Poor Baby now for poor little Linda.  I have been so very sick with a  Respiratory Virus that turned into a case of Bronchitis and I have been blissfully (not) out of my mind for a couple of weeks.  I am still really short of breath and on oxygen and a bunch of other things but I think I will live ha ha.  Enough whining and complaining for now, onto my card.

I taught this card a couple of weeks ago at my card club Inky Digits and never got to post it.  I wanted to make sure to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful country and a mahoosive big THANKS to all those who have served in the military to protect our Constitution.

Short post but all the papers are from Aww Shucks Scrapbook store and the manufacturer is Reminisce.  The card I saw in the July Card Maker magazine..  It was a design submitted by Carol King.  This is my take on her design.  The America license plate is from a post last year at TLC.

Not linking up to any challenges at this time.  Be back later to do that.

Back to bed and concentrating on breathing and not coughing myself silly.

Hugs, Linda
