Using my Independence Day cricut cartridge I made the pennant banner for this card. I didn't even realize the pennant cut was on this cartridge, so that's a bonus which can be used for a lot of other projects! I stamped the background with Stampin Up's large denim stamp & faded jeans distress ink. Then I used Tim Holtz new stamp set, Air Travel, to stamp the plane and heat embossed it with Zing black embossing powder. Finally I stamped the "Time is a Companion" quote (also by TH), and added a ribbon to complete the card. I love that quote--and thought it worked well for this retirement card. Simple, but I like how it turned out.

It doesn't take a special day to say 'Thank You' to our military members for their service, any day will do just fine. Consider sending a card today in support of Operation Write Home.
Guess that's about it for today. Thanks for checking in.
