Default Ideas for cards for troops

These will be cards to go with care packages being sent out, not cards for them to send out to others. I am supposed to make 4 of them, I was planning to make them all a little different, since I get so bored making multiples of the same cards, LOL. there will be 4 care packages, one card for each. I was told to use a sentiment such as: "Thinking of you."

I was wondering if anyone has some ideas for stamps or types of images to use. Not to be sexist, but I guess I assume the troops are still predominately male? I have no idea if that is true or not. Would you go with a set like Lovely as a Tree, maybe a lighthouse, or????? Would flowers be too girly? I have lots of different types of images, let me know what you would use, and ideas for color schemes too. Ideas for other possible sentiments would be helpful too.
Thanks!

Dustin Pike has great digi images i'm using for some of my cards. I really liked his big truck card,plus some of his Halloween digi's. some are free, they work up quickly.

I just did 12 cards for Operation Quiet Comfort-- 4 each of 3 designs. They are posted on my blog. They are fall-themed cards. Trying to get 12 more made before Tues, when I will send them out.
