Happy Veterans Day!

Hi Friends!

{Edit to note: This card made The Shabby Tea Room's Honorable Mention Cup of Tea! Yay! Thank you so much!}

I have another Thanksgiving card to share today.

Since it's Veterans Day I only saw it fitting to create a Patriotic Thanksgiving card. To all those who have served in the past and are currently serving I am Giving thanks!

This card is applicable for two challenges: The Shabby Tea Room: A Shabby Thanksgiving and The Kraft Journal: Giving Thanks.

I created my own tag then I ran it through the crimper to simulate corrugated cardboard.  I heart Kraft! :-) I added some great papers, a sentiment and crochet trim. 





Here is The Shabby's Tea Room beautiful inspiration photo.
I am going to keep this short as I have to complete the finishing preparations for my son's birthday party. In a few hours I will have a lot of people here to help my son celebrate another year! I have been burning the midnight oil working on the finishing touches, so I hope all will enjoy.  He is having a train party!
If you have a moment today, please head over to check out our newest Fascinating Friday feature Jocelyn Olson of Red Balloon Cards.   Please stop by Joceylyn's blog and check out her fantastically fun and modern designs.

If you see a Veteran, be sure to Thank them!
~Tammy~
PS:  Come back on Sunday for the DeNami Designs Blog Hop!
