A Thanks to Our Veterans

I am the daughter of a proud Marine and niece to a Navy uncle, who is now deceased. I am always reminded of their service to our country and what an honor it is to be an American. On this day, Veteran's Day, I want to thank all the men and women who serve and have served our country. You and your family sacrifice so much for our freedoms and I am eternally grateful.

So on this day, I created a quick and simple card of thanks.

The card was very easy to create. For the papers, I used CTMH's Fanfare Level II Paper Kit. These papers are great for patriotic holidays, birthday parties and the like, since it has wonderful red, blue and yellow patterned papers with lots of stars, pinwheels, balloons and banners. For the flourish, I used the My Stickease Fanfare Sticker set. So putting the card together was very easy to do.

Here is a close up of one of the Dimensional Elements Stars I used. I stamped the main star in Pacifica Ink with the Stitched Together stamp set to match the stamping I did along the border of the card. I think it brings it together very nicely. I'm not much of a sewer, so these stamps really come in handy. 

So there you have it - a simple and easy card to create in a matter of minutes. Even though it is a simple card, it was made with a great amount of thanks in mind. I hope this inspires you to get scrapping or card making and maybe even thank a veteran you know for their service. God bless and God bless America!


Don’t forget Close to My Heart’s November Specials too!

November stamp of the month:

Also, there is a Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

November 2011 Constant Campaign: Holiday Wishes

This set is just perfect for your layouts and especially for your cards. When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set all through the month of November (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s a tremendous savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN.

Also, if you think that sounds terrific, there’s a bonus as well! Many of the images in the sets coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! How easy is that!
Okay, since I just threw a lot of info at you, let me summarize: 
*Spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retail price of $17.95) for $5.
*Spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holiday Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
*These two offers CAN be combined. How awesome is that! So for example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog or online, you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set). You save $25.90! Which means the stamps are almost paying for themselves! You can’t beat that!

***Just a Note***  You MUST add the discounted stamps to your shopping cart when prompted by the system DURING CHECKOUT. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps
