It's Friday, Veteran's Day and 11-11-11! Seems like we should be doing something to celebrate! But it's just another day, right? Hubs is working and I'm working. Christopher has the day off from school for Veteran's Day. Thank you to all our Veteran's and service people for your sacrifices and commitment to our country! I think we should remember this all the time, not just Veteran's Day!

If I hadn't been so busy tearing apart my office this week, I might have remembered to make a patriotic card to share today. Instead I have this hybrid card that I created with a new digital kit from Two Peas in a Bucket called 'Cupcake Toppers' from Tricia Chapman.

When I design with a digital kit made for something specific like this kit, I like to show how versatile it can be by making something different. I think these colorful cupcake toppers are perfect for Thanksgiving invitations, table setting place cards, scrapbook page accents, notes and greeting cards.

This card was quick and easy to pull together. All I did was to add a couple coordinating card stock colors and a sprinkling of gems. The black frame is a Spellbinders die cut and the yellow piece of card stock is a scalloped shaped scrap from Bazzill Basics.

Most times I like to add lots of stitching and accents, but for this, I wanted to show that you can also put together pretty paper crafts in no time and very little product.

Well, my office is looking pretty bare! Since Monday I've been emptying things out, dusting and vaccuming. Now comes the fun part...decorating! Without so much stuff everywhere I can make things look pretty! No more unsightly piles and things put in every possible nook and cranny! It'll be fun to incorporate some of my beloved vintage items as storage pieces. Hopefully, I can show you some photos next week!

Have a wonderful Veteran's Day, 11-11-11 and weekend!
