11-11-11 on Christmas Lane

Happy Veteran's Day, everyone!  Today is not just another day off of school, or a day to shop the sales, but a day to contemplate the service and sacrifice of so many men and women.  Please don't let the meaning of Veteran's Day get lost in the shuffle of a three day weekend. 

Yesterday I mentioned that for the next few days we'll be strolling down Christmas Lane, looking at projects made with this wonderful Simply Scrappin Kit that you can find on page 26 of the Holiday Mini-catalog.  With one of these kits, you can make an amazing amount of cards, especially if you add in some Whisper White or Crumb Cake card stock as the base of your cards. 

Today's card is another quick and easy one, and that's just what we need with the holidays looming ahead!
Check it out!

This one starts off with a folded card in Crumb Cake card stock, which is layered with a panel of Cherry Cobbler.  On top of this panel, I placed a die-cut strip of Christmas lights (just peel and stick!).  The focal panel of Crumb Cake is adorned with three peel and stick lights from the kit, along with some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine (p. 194 of the big catalog). For contrast, the focal panel is backed with some Lucky Limeaid card stock.  The sentiment is from the Holiday Happiness stamp set (p.34 of the big catalog) and is stamped in Early Espresso onto one of the die cuts in the kit.  Voila!  It's a great card and it only took minutes to create. 

If you'd like to order one of these fabulous Simply Scrappin' Kits, just give me a call at 503-925-1929 and I'll add it to my next order.  Or you can click on the shop now button at the top of my blog and order it online.  The item number is 124007  Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit and the price is 21.95.

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, Happy Veteran's Day to all!  Take a few minutes for yourself  this weekend and experience the relaxation and happiness that being creative brings to our lives.
