Cricut Challenge 31

  I really haven't had much time to craft lately, but I am still trying to participate is die cut swaps. For the month of June there were 2 swaps I signed up for. The themes are Patriotic and BBQ. You have to make a 4" inch cut for each theme.
  For the BBQ theme I made a hot dog (above). It wasn't my first choice, but I like the hot dogs better than the first set of cuts I made.
   Below was my first set of cuts. It's an apple pie slice, but for some reason it just didn't work for me. So my swap partners are getting a slice anyways lol.

 For my patriotic cut I made a Home of the Brave. While I was making this I was thinking of my cousin Javi who was in 29 Palms Calif. for a training mission. So this cut really hit home for me. You see my cousin was in Afghanistan for 6 months in 2010. He missed several holidays with his very young family. Now when I say very young he had to leave shortly after his second son was born. I am truly proud of him and all of our service men and women. They're all in my prayers every night.  I love you Javi.

Cartridges I used:

Home of the Brave           Stand and Salute at 4"
