Happy Veterans Day!

WOW... 11.11.11

Such an interesting date for this Veterans Day, don't you think? Very fitting to be honoring our soldiers on such a day as this. I would like to thank all the men and women of the armed forces for their dedication to the citizens of this country, to lay their lives on the line to serve and protect our rights and freedoms. Thank You!

I am thrilled to be writing from our nations capital... Washington D.C..  I've been dying to get out here, to visit Arlington, the Vietnam wall... the monuments... and finally, my dream has come true. 

As some of you may know, there is an Operation Write Home blog hop going on today.  I LOVE this organization, so kind and thoughtful. 

I was asked to do a card for the Hero Blog... and guess what I did???  I used a new stamp set from the 2012 catalog.  It is specifically for OWH. How awesome is that???

I am absolutely in LOVE with the combination of Vintage Photo and Broken China together!!!  Here's a closer peek.

I'll have the supplies for you at the bottom of this post... But in the meantime, I have a really old video of my hubba hubba husband back when he was in the Marine Corp.  So proud he served.  He was such a young nervous pup...kinda melts my heart all over again!!! Sorry about the sound, afterall... he's on a ship.

Thanks everyone, I hope you have a fantastic day and week-end! Oh and did I tell you that I am with my Jemmifer???? I just LOVE her. Happy times!

And now for the supplies

We watched the video for the button tree card and loved that too! We all agreed that we love your style of card-making and that your videos are among the best, because we always learn something!
