Happy Veteran's Day!

This week at Celebrate the Occasion we are honoring our Veterans!

My sister had let me borrow her Stand and Salute cartridge as inspiration for my card this week, and then she surprised me with my own Stand and Salute cart.
Just another one of her great $20 finds at Michael's.
This is the card I was inspired to make:
The stamps are from My Creative Time's Happy Homecoming set.

Veteran's Day is a time for all of us to remember those who have served and are currently serving in all branches of our military.
Yesterday I was flying home from a terrific vacation and on the plane was a family. They had just spent the week in Florida on a family vacation before he was to be deployed for the next year.
Sitting next to my mother-in-law was another soldier in uniform. She told him that she was honored to be sitting next to someone who is defending our country.

Hug your family, cherish your friends and THANK a Veteran!


  1. Great Job Yvette, Thank your sister from all of us if it weren't for her, we wouldn't be seeing such an awesome card. That is so nice of your sis.
    Every time I thank a vet I get tears in my eyes.
