CTO Challenge 38 - Lest We Forget

Happy Tuesday my treasured friends!

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,

  7. My new sweet friend, I love this card. Simplicity is also beautiful. :o) It allows the exquisite poppy to stand out. This is a gorgeous card with an important message. I'm so sorry your hand is injured! I'd bake you some cookies to help, if I could. :o) And thank you for another incredibly sweet comment! I've been scouring ebay for my two most desired carts, both retired, and the prices are always insane. But hopefully I will somehow get one before Christmas. :) You are so kind! Have a sparkly evening, Tracey!

    Hugs and blessings!
