Hello. Welcome to another DOstamper STARS Thursday challenge. Today is September 11. It is the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil and is a good time to remember those we lost on that day as well as all who serve to defend and protect our freedom.

I have chosen to create 2 thank you cards today. These would be perfect to send to a hero serving overseas as well as those local heros who are the first to respond on a daily basis.
My cards today feature pieces from the recent Paper Pumpkin (PP) kits. The first card is using DSP from the June Pinwheel PP kit. I cut the pinwheels apart and pieced the triangles back together to form a square. The star is cut from Smoky Slate cardstock using the Stars Framelits.
The sentiment is from the July Wish Big PP kit.
The second card is from the August Seriously Amazing PP kit. I changed up the background DSP to the small red square pattern from the Maritime DPS collection. The other paper is an extra piece I had from cutting down the pinwheels for Card One. I embossed the die cut layer using the Lucky Stars TIEF.
I hope you enjoyed these cards today. Stop by my fellow STARS for more inspiration.
