Veteran's Day Blog Hop Nov 12th



America is the Land of the Free, because of the 
brave. Veteran’s Day celebrates and acknowledges 
the service of all United States Military Veterans. 
Today we honor the brave men and women
who have served in the American Military. With 
great respect, and a heart full of pride, we say a 
great big THANK YOU to those who have served. 
Please hop with us as we pay homage to the 
people who help keep America the Land of the Free.

You should of come from my friend Marji's blog. If 
not then you need to start at the beginning at 
Melissa's blog. You wouldn't want to miss out of 
some fantastic projects for today.

For todays Hop I decided to make a really simple 
flag card. It might not look simple but, it is really 
easy to put together. 


started off with a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 blue card. You can 
make your own card bases really easy by simply 
cutting a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of card stock in half.  
Then you will have 2 card bases. The red and white 
stripes started off at 3/4 X 12. Then I punched them 
with a Martha Stewart paper punch. After 
punching all 12 I cut them down to 5 1/4. When 
that is done you just layer them one on top of the 
others. Easy? Right.


The blue corner is 2 X 2 1/2. The stars are a really 
old paper punch I had. But, you could use any star 
shape. Mine are 3/4 inches. I added some $1.00 
bling I bought at JoAnns. I used my favorite white 
pen to add "stitching"around the blue corner. 

I hope you enjoyed my flag card for todays hop. 

 You should now hop on over to my friend Robin
