This week the teaparty is for Trent Baker. He is a retired Chief Petty Officer from the US Navy and the brother of TMD (Tina). He served for 23 years! Unfortunately, shortly after he retired, he found out he has cancer. So lets rally and send some teapotter LOVE!!! His birthday is in August, so I thought I would make him a birthday card :)
The image is a digi from juxtapost. It was really a Commander (officer), but with me also being retired Navy, I had to make sure I sent Trent a CHIEF. The background was done my DandI63 (Irene), she was so kind to make a few for me! I just LOVE how that flag looks and just cannot even begin to thank her enough! The letters for Trent are Thickers (foam), the sparkly red are chipboard Thickers and the Happy Birthday stickers are Doodles. I colored the image with Copic makers and used some dimensionals.
I do wish Trent all the best! Hope YOU will wish him well too!!!
I wasn't sure if he was a SEAL or if that was just in the story....so if someone can let me know for sure, I would appreciate it!

Kathleen, you have me wanting to salute this officer and the flag! I love what you have done here. What a fantastic way to acknowledge Trent, his service to our country, and his 42nd birthday!! I love what you are doing with these bg's that Irene has given you!

This is wonderful Kathleen. It's a good thing I didn't try to do a Navy card as I wouldn't have known a thing about rank and I'd have botched it for sure. I love your card, it makes one feel very respectful of all that is done to keep this continent safe.
