Honoring Veterans

Today is a special day!  My husband is going on the Never Forgotten Honor Flight to Washington DC.  Veterans are flown so they can see the memorials that stand in their honor.  On the flight home, the soldiers have “Mail Call” which was always  a highlight while they were serving our country.  Below you can see one of the cards I sent for him.

To make it even more special, I created a Pop Up Panel Card.


This card features two stamp sets that are retired:  For Your Country and Be the Star

Dave is going to be surprised by “Mail Call”!  A big “thank you” to everyone who sent cards for him.

The event began yesterday with an awesome banquet and program in Wausau, WI.  Today the veterans went to the airport early and will spend the day in Washington D.C. visiting memorials that will provide them with closure, gratitude & respect for service to our country. 

We owe all veterans a huge thank you for the freedoms we enjoy today!

Shadow Box Anniversary Gift

I created this Shadow Box home decor item to help friends celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary.  Their daughter helped out by getting a copy of the couple’s wedding photo for me.


For this project I used a variety of items including a few things that have long since been retired.  Here is a partial list of items:

  • Good Morning Magnolia stamp set
  • Magnolia Memory Dies
  • Animal Friends Dies
  • Frosted Bouquet Dies
  • Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Stitched Shapes Dies
  • Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim

Stamping Tip:  The embellishment in the center of the magnolia flower was silve and I wanted it to be gold toned for the golden anniversary (50 years).  I heat embossed the embellishent with gold embossing powder – be careful if you do this.  It took the metal a while to cool off!

The Pearl Basic Jewels looked too white for this project so I used the Ivory Stampin’ Blend to color them.  They ended up looking more vintage which is the look I was going for.


After spending lots of time on the Shadow Box, I needed a simple card to go with the gift.  This is one of the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Cards mounted on the small card base.  A bit of lace and a sentiment were all that was needed to finish off the project.

The surprise party was truly a surprise and I’m pretty sure they liked the Shadow Box, too.
