Veteran's Day Blog Hop!

Hi guys, I'm the last stop on the Imaginisce Veteran's Day blog hop for today - so when you're done here, head on back to the Imaginisce Blog. Make sure you read all the way to the end though - I have a little giveaway today!

I made a card using a free vintage digi image I found on the web - super easy to do just by Googling whatever topic you need an image for. I used some red and blue Imaginisce papers and accented with red, sparkly hot rocks, using my I-Rock. I also finished off the inside with some red white and blue ribbon.

And since this is a card to thank the men and women who have served our country, putting their lives on the line for us, I also wanted to enter it in the Cheery Lynn "Give Thanks" challenge.

Paper: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake, Makin' Waves)
Tools: I-Rock, Hot Rocks
Doily Die: Cheery Lynn (French Pastry Doily)
Leaves Die: My Favorite Things
Heart Die: Tim Holtz

  39. I have been watching you since I first start watching youtube. I was taking care of my dying Father , who was my "Everything" and a wonderful doctor himself for many-many years. I lost him on 8/20 and tomorrow will be my 50th OMG birthday but without him , don't feel like much of anything. Your children are adorable. I love how you colored C/T by S/C. I hope you win for whatever you enter it for. Love seeing everything you make for the D.T. you're on. Youtube and you and alot of the ladies helped me through alot of rough days and nights while my Daddy was dying . I would even have it on while he was on the Hospice unit. Thanks for making my troubles over the summer a little less painful. Missy
