Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day is a day set aside for honoring our military veterans.  We have our veterans to thank for all the freedoms we enjoy.  I honor them every day, but today we celebrate their sacrifices.  This display of One Thousand Flags over Mesquite is on display in our little town in southern Nevada.

One way that I honor our military troops is by making cards for Operation Write Home
This is a card I made, in multiples, to send to our troops for Christmas.

The embossed gold stars is made with a Cuttlebug folder called Winter Stars.  The poinsettia is made with a die from Boss Kut and held together with a flower brad.  Both stamps we purchased from DRS Designs.

Before mailing, a personal message will be
written inside these cards to let them know
that we honor them.

  1. Indeed we rememeber your Veterans and yesterday and Sunday we remember all from whatever nation as well. Great show of flags - great card...and may God bless all your endeavours to give your military men and women a card to read and a card to send home....just think the verse for inside is so well worded. Thanks for sharing all of this. May God Bless America.
