As some of you know, I am a mother of an United States ARMY Soldier. So I designed this card for him. It totally fits his cheeky since of humor. I've been keeping this design in my head for quite some time and was pleased when it came to life. Actually designing something patriotic for my soldier always brings a few tears to my eyes.
I would be pleased if you lifted this photo by right clicking and "saving picture as" send it to a soldier you may know. It is also on my facebook page waiting to be reposted for a special person serving to protect us.
My wish this holiday season is simple...That all those brave men and women are safe. If they are unable to be home with their families they are with their brother and sister soldiers sharing this special holiday together and sharing wonderful stories of home. I hope that is what my son will be doing.
Just in case you get to see this Post Private Sutto....I love you son and Merry Christmas!!!! "I love you more" :) I miss you, xoxoxo
