Remembrance/Honor Challenge at Tiddly Inks!

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

It's November 11th, Veteran's Day in the United States, the day America has rightly set aside to honor all veterans who have served honorably in the military, whether in wartime or peacetime. (And, if you are in the U.K., you just observed Remembrance Sunday). If you know a veteran, be sure to take time today to thank them for their service to your country! 

And, in keeping with the holiday, over at Tiddly Inks, the theme for the current challenge is Remembrance or HonorCreate something in memory or in honor of someone. So, create a card or project for a veteran, or for anyone whom you want to honor or remember, for any reason.
I used the Light My Life digital image, colored completely in Earth-colored Copics, to make a card for my brother, whose birthday happens to be today, November 11th. I wrote the "Remembering You" sentiment by hand, and obviously need some practice on hand-lettering. The suede "ribbon" was a waist tie from an old jacket. I love it when something I've saved "just in case" I might need it some day, finally comes in handy. ;~)

Did some hand-lettering inside the card, too, with a little doodling on the top and bottom of the sentiment panel. 

So, who will you honor? Check out the beautiful creations from the Tiddly Inks Design Team for ideas and inspiration, then create your own card or project and link up for a chance to win! 

I hope you have a great week. And, if you are a Veteran, THANK YOU! Your service to our country is greatly appreciated today, and every day!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 201
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Thinking of You
613 Avenue Create Challenge #97: Anything Goes
The Shabby Tea Room-Week #239: Just Neutrals
