It feels like ages since I've posted here, and quite honestly, I miss it a lot. With all the school work and injuring my hand at work, it has put off the crafting that I wanted to get done :(. Over at Celebrate the Occasion today, the Challenge is to create a project for Veteran's Day! Here in Canada, our "Veteran's Day" is called "Remembrance Day", which we celebrate on November 11. We all wear poppies over our heart to honour those who died for our country, and we have a moment of silence on the 11th day of the eleventh month, at the eleventh hour. How is Veteran's Day celebrated in America?
So in honour of Remembrance and Veteran's Day, I created this super simple card showcasing our poppies, and a common quote during Remembrance Day, Lest We Forget.
Super, super simple card for you all today. Gotta wait till my hand gets a little bit better before I can get crafting again, which is unfortunate.
Trail of Treasures:
- Card Base - 4.25 x 4.25" square card cut in kraft cardstock with stitching
- Letters - Shimmer Alpha Making Memories Stickers
- Twine - from my local scrapbooking store, and added a red poppy
As we all celebrate the importance of whether it be Veteran's or Remembrance Day, don't forget to thank all those soldiers who fought for the freedom of our country. No words could ever express our gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Also new and exciting, I just recently started up my own Facebook page. If you're on Facebook, make sure to pop on by to Tracey's Trail of Treasures, and say hi!
Happy Veteran's Day everyone!
Until next time's treasures,
