Paper Sweeties Blog Hop - Have a Beautiful Day!

So glad to have you along on the Paper Sweeties blog hop with  My Time Made Easy ™ LLC


9/11
Today is a day of remembrance, and a time to thank all of those who have served our country. Past, present and future, the words ‘thank you’ don't seem to be enough. Many people have given so much of themselves, to work tirelessly to preserve our freedom and protect our country.

Today on 9/11 we take a moment to remember those who lost their lives that tragic day, and the families they left behind. We take another moment to honor all of the individuals who helped that day, and who are, or who have served our country. Today we remember.

In honor of all these individuals and their families My Time Made Easy ™ LLC and Paper Sweeties has organized a Blog Hop with *NEW* products & projects to inspire you to create gifts for our Troops, or that special someone!


My Paper Sweeties creation had to be Patriotic as we reflect on this tragic day 11 years ago that I know will forever be etched in my memory.  

I have used Paper Sweeties Emma! Isn't she lovely?  I started with a Lunch Bag Kraft card base and added some white paint for a shabby touch. I pieced together a wonderful collection of papers from my stash that works well for this Patriotic little number. I then added some eyelet lace trim in white to the center of my card front.  A length of red polka-dot ribbon was wrapped around the card face and tied in a bow embellished with a white button which has been laced with hemp twine completed in a double bow. 

I then took a paper doily and added a Lunch Bag Kraft circle to the center and adhered to the left portion of the card embellished with one darling papercrafted Emma and red, white and blue buttons to frame her with!  A patterned paper fan rosette with button was added to the lower right portion of the card. 

Last, but not least, a hand-cut sentiment banner was created using the scotch tape method for customizing your stamps.  

Thank you for joining along with us for this special commemoration blog hop ! I hope you have enjoyed your visit!
