Today's card entitled "HERO" features Eyelet Outlet brads and is the third card of a six-card series highlighting words we have come to know during this historic time.  HERO?  Don't we all know that word already?

Yes, however, what we have come to know very quickly is a new definition for the word HERO.  No longer is this word reserved for the person saving the life of another drowning or the firefighter pulling persons from a building on fire.  It is now a much broader definition and includes:  farmers who continued getting food to market during lockdown, front-line medical personnel going far beyond their normal responsibilities, the grocery worker accepting the risk by coming to work so we can purchase food, the sanitation workers also working through the lockdown.  Let's not forget teachers and so many others whose work changed dramatically in a quick fashion and benefitted so many.  The Maya Angelou quote says it so eloquently.

The Eyelet Outlet brads displayed throughout the quote remind us of some of the heros we have today.  The word 'hero' has a line of clear jewel strips on the left-hand side of the letter.  First I added red-line tape on the left-hand side of the letter, added the Eyelet Outlet Jewel Strip, then dipped the letter in extra fine silver glitter to fill in the gaps on the tape that the jewel strip did not fill.  The effect is so beautiful....give it a try!

Head on over to the Eyelet Outlet site and check out all the Brads, Washi, Bling, and more and think about making a thank you card for the hero(s) in your life!
