God Bless America

If you are looking for the current Freshly Brewed Challenge: please go here

I created this image in honor of Memorial Day. His name is Daniel: God Bless America. This little boy is a reminder that freedom is not free. He is what the mother sees when her son leaves for war, what the daddy sees when he returns and his son tries on his uniform and says "Daddy I love you" and he is my way of Thanking every service man and woman for all they do.

I am giving this image away to several surprise people this weekend. All you have to do is comment on this post. If you have created a card for the challenge already, have two chances. If you leave ANOTHER comment letting us know you grabbed the challenge badge on the sidebar and have linked it back, you have 3 chances. If you or a loved one is or has been in the military, please share something special with us about it in a separate comment. That gives you ANOTHER chance to win.

((If you do not want Daniel as your prize you are free to choose an image of your choice if you win.))
Here are a few cards created by the FBC


(I did an oops and added one extra line to the wave part of the flag before the girls created with it. It is fixed and correct now as you can see in the watermarked image above)

I do hope you love little Daniel as much as I do.

**edited** I had a few requests to create a girl and a request for a British version of these images (which is still in the works but will be available soon). Here is Grace: God Bless America

Have a Beautiful and Blessed weekend.

You have until Monday night to get in on the fun and win one of these images.
Also, these images are part of a set being released in July. I will release these images with a few more from the set on June 4th. The rest of the set will not be available until July 7th.
Thank you again for stopping by.
