Happy Veteran's Day! - Stand & Salute Rerun

Tis the season.....  for my kids to get sick!  Which of course I can only last so long taking care of the little ones, staying up with the youngest, doing the "normal" mom duties before I start dragging BIG TIME!  Plus, I have my OB appointment in a little bit. 

I decided I would do a rerun of the card I made my husband last year to say not only "Thank you" for his military service but more importantly what he does for me and our family. 

He is in the military (Air Force) and to say he loves airplanes is an understatement.

Here is a video tutorial of how I made it. I hope you enjoy it!

Card base:  Stampin Up Night of Navy 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  White Cardstock 4 X 5 1/4
Other Cardstock/paper:  Red Christmas Paper from Target 3 1/4" X 5 1/4" - embossed using Cuttlebug Stars Folder, Silver Christmas Paper from Target (I got these last year at Christmas time in the Christmas decorations department), Black, Real Red
Stamps: Women of Life (sentiment only)
Ink: SU Night of Navy
Accessories:  Ribbon from $1 bin from Target, Cricut & Stand & Salute Cartridge, Cuttlebug & Stars embossing folder

Thanks so much for checking in today!

I also wanted to say thank you for all the great comments from Tuesday's post!  It seems to be unanimous!  So far anyway!  I have already made some of my Christmas cards that say "Merry Christmas" but I do think from now on I will make them "Season's Greetings", "Happy Holidays", ect.  Since they will probably be late!

Please, be sure to subscribe via email or follow my blog.  I have some upcoming giveaways that you won't want to miss!

Have a GREAT crafting day!
