the face of inspiration

meet deirdre and her gorgeous family. she is the military wife that emailed me with a special request the other day. she wrote,

"We are a military family and my hubby just left us from his 2 week R&R to go back to Iraq where he will be for Christmas.I am having a hard time finding a card that is military related.I was thinking something like your red ribbon card but make the ribbon yellow (for deployment) and maybe an american flag for the whole back ground and one picture . . . please let me know if you could do something. "

how could i say no? i was up for the challenge. however, the next morning, as I stared at a bright yellow ribbon, a red white & blue flag and my mostly brown, red & green collection of cards . . . i doubted myself, for just a second, on how could i make it all work & keep my design style intact. i think i did it though & deirdre's email after seeing the draft made all the work worth while!

these are the three deirdre had to decide on, which did she choose? I am not telling. if you are one of the lucky ones to know this wonderful wife and mom personally, you will have to wait until you get it in the mail :)

thank you Deirdre, I am honored to be a little part of the you family's holiday. And please thank your husband, for all of us, for sacrificing so much to keep us safe!!
