JAS Challenge...Celebrating Veterans' Day

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Happy Thursday Fellow Scrappers and Crafters,

Happy Veterans' Day! I want to write a heartfelt Thank You to the men and women who defend Democracy. Equally, I want to write Thank You to the silent warriors on the home front (spouses, children, friends and family) who keep life moving back at home. We Salute you ALL. Thank You for your service.

This week Just A Scrappin' Challenge...CelebratingVeterans' Day, is to create a card, project or layout that honors our veterans. This card is based off Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch No. 176. I used K&Company's Americana paper line to create the various layers and my embellishment. The eagle is a die cut from Cricut's Stand and Salute cartridge cut at 3". The two bottom stitched layers were created using Lil' Inkers' Stitched Mats dies, along with a new tag and stitched tag frame from Taylored Expressions' Build A Tag (I) die set. I finished my card with a little twine, "Celebration" sticker, and stars.

Thank you for stopping by. Don't forget to stop by the Just A Scrappin blog for more Veterans' Day inspiration. You will be glad you did!
