CCEE2240 ~ Happy Birthday U.S. Navy!

Hi all! 

Happy Thursday the 13th!  

And ..........

In the United States of America , October 13 

is the day that the U.S. Navy celebrates as their birthday. 

To honor the men and women who have stepped up to serve our nation

 as members of the Navy since its inception, create a  card with a nautical theme.

Thanks to our hostess, Lynn, for another great challenge!

As you can see (ha! no pun intended!), I had an oopsie moment

and didn't read the nautical theme part - just US Navy!

My mind went military and red/white/blue

but I did include the word SEA on my card .... in the sentiment :)

And aw shucks, too, because I have a ton of boat/sea stamps!

I used the Altenew stamp set 'Land Of The Free' Eagle

and the sentiment from America the Beautiful 

which - FUN FACT - isn't the national anthem of the USA

(the Star Spangled Banner is!)

Be sure to stop in the CCEE Stampers blog

and see what the DT has created this week!

You can also link up your cards to an online gallery or Splitcoaststampers

by using the code CCEE2239.

Thanks for stopping by!
