Thank you for your Service

It’s the long weekend here in Canada.  Almost my entire house is sick.  Yuk!

Our new challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.

The theme is to create a Memorial Day (for our US friends) project….perhaps it is something that you do over the long weekend, like picnics & fireworks, camping…is it the theme of brotherhood and family, or do you have a special someone that serves in the armed forces.  We want to see what you create.

 

As well, we have a wonderful sponsor, BUGABOO STAMPS!

As a Canadian,  I am given many rights and privileges that would not be possible without those that serve in our armed forces.  For that I extend my most humblest and sincerest thanks and admiration.  Without you I could not be a free me.  For my project this week, I have chose to honor those who serve.

Now of course I did it in Red and White 😉  The image is Bugaboo’s Kidlet Army which I think is just adorable.  I used my Taylored Expressions die for the white background.  The red star behind the image is a Spellbinders.  The Stars and sentiment are from Stampin Up.  I hope you enjoy the card and please come by the blog and play along for a chance to win.

Have a wonderful long weekend everyone!

My second week sponsoring the Creative Corner Challenge this week.  Our challenge is to use fasteners…buttons, eyelets, brads etc.

Lately I have been trying to use up my Little Sprout kit that I bought way back in 2009.  So expect to see a bunch of cards/layouts in the coming weeks using it up.  I finally got through it all. :0  This card is actually using scraps of scraps..right down to the very end. 🙂

I used a sketch from a sketch challenge at CanadianScrapSwap Chat this week.  Lots of fun banners and flags. 🙂

I used everything from my stash this week.  Buttons, bling, ribbon and paper 🙂

Make sure you stop by the blog this week to enter the challenge for a chance to win the prize I have up for grabs today.
