After fighting on several of the islands in the Pacific, he was critically injured by mortar shell on the island of Guam. He was in a group of 10 in a foxhole. Three survived and only one was not critically injured. My daddy was hospitalized for over a year. And a good portion of that time his parents knew of his injuries, but had no knowledge of where he was. Hard to imagine.
My daddy says the injuries he sustained on Guam saved his life. From Guam, his unit then moved on to Iwo Jima. As we all know, few survived there. That is why he always says his life was saved on Guam.
Other than God, and his family, the two things my dad loves the most are THE US MARINE CORP and Alabama football. So here is my card for my daddy for Fathers Day.
My daddy drives a little red truck. He says it is crimson, like the Crimson Tide. On the driver's door is an American flag. On the back of the truck is the US Marine Corp Emblem and a bumper sticker that says Semper Fi.
When I made the truck for this card, I did it on my Gypsy so I could weld two trucks together. This I did to create a mini card for the front of the big card. Here is the inside of the mini truck card.
The truck on the card is a cut from the NIFTY FIFTIES cartridge and the #1 Dad sentiment is from the WRAP IT UP cartridge. Inside the mini truck card is the sentiment I love you from CRICUT CLASSIC FONT.
And here is the inside of the card.
The It's your day! sentiment is also from the CRICUT CLASSIC FONT cartridge. The other embellishments on the card I purchased at Hobby Lobby. The blue pattern paper with stars is from a My Mind's Eye stack called Party Time. All other papers are Basil cardstock.
Happy Fathers Day Daddy!!
