Cards for Heroes


I spent the morning of the 4th of July making cards for a program called Cards for Heroes. As I was stamping and designing cards, I thought what a wonderful way to spend my time than to pay tribute to the men & women currently serving our country. The 2 pictured here were created for the need for Love You and Miss You cards from Kim's blog (and she's offering some blog candy for them). These will be sent to the troops for them to send to their family members. So you get to touch the lives of at least 2 people -- the person using the card to write to their family member and the person receiving the card. I made 6 of each design.

Mouse on Swing card: Stamped image was from Christine13 on the PIF thread, Short and Sweet set from SU, Soft Sky DSP, Rose Red DSP, White Stampers Select cardstock from Papertrey, Black Versafine and Copic markers, SU Photo Corner punch

Baking Riley card: Image is from Hanna Stamps, A Muse sentiment, Papertrey Mixed Messages, SU Cutie Pie DSP, White Stampers Select cardstock from Papertrey, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Rose Red cardstock from SU, Martha Stewart scalloped punch, SU 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Black Versafine and Copic markers, wavy blade for Cutterpede cutter

Sandy, Thanks for the info about the Cards for Heroes, I just mailed a big box of cards to them. I had a bunch of Christmas cards that had been collecting dust in a baggie.
