Did you know that children of men and women on active-duty in the military are respectively called "military brats"? That is because children who grow up immersed in military culture are actually associated with a unique subculture and grow up with a unique cultural identity. For families that move around often and live outside of their home country, it is often the homeland culture which can feel foreign to the child. Within the military culture itself, the term "military brat" is not considered to be derogatory but rather demonstrates affection and respect. (source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_brat)
Lisa Lynn has designed two wonderful cards using the Military Brat set. The first one also includes papers from the Camo Digi Papers set.
Do you have a son, grandson or other male family member in service? Why not say thank you to him or tell him how brave you think he is. Lisa Lynn has done just that with this wonderful card featuring elements from the Soldier Sam set.
Donna, one of our Guest Designers this quarter, created this awesome card using Soldier Sam as well.
Woman are becoming more and more prominent in the military these days as well. How about a card telling your daughter, granddaughter or another enlisted female, just how proud you are of their service or how much you miss them. Audrey has created this beautiful card using elements from the Soldier Sara set.
