I would follow you around the world…all over again

Happy Friday!
I received this stamp as a *prize* this week from 
Unity Stamp Company and I just HAD to use it 
on my very first Valentine of 2014.  
I really love it… a LOT!
This sentiment fits perfectly for my life, being the wife of a Marine, we've been around world…
{not quite, but something like that} 
during his 29+ years of service!
And yes….I'd do it all over again.
In a heartbeat.
We are Michigan kids who now call NC home so I snipped part of an old NC atlas as part of my design, not sure I like that part, but it was too late to tear it off, oh well.
So…check out Friends with Flair and get yourself inspired.
This is all I've got today…short, sweet, LOVE..
Hope your Friday is a good one!
'til next time...

  2. Great card, Donna! I love the fact you used images and paper that have a special place in your heart. I too recently purchased a Unity stamp with a map of the US for similar reasons. I am an AF wife and it would be nice to make cards that reflect that aspect of my life. Thanks for the inspiration.
