Some of the cards for the troops.
First I want to apologize for not noting the products, colors and accessories used to make these cards. They are all being sent overseas for the troops to send home to their family and friends. My only excuse is that when making of this many cards, the details got lost in making. I do want to thank all of you for the privilege of casing your cards. After a 100 or so the imagination goes blank. Generally 4 or 5 of the same card are made. If not for all of you, they all would be the same designs. So, thank you all. They are all fairly simple cards because of the time factor and weight. This is the second batch going over. Iím not sure who is doing the giving and who is doing the receiving. My friendís son told his mother that the first batch was gone in less than 2 hours. When I heard that, I just got that warm fuzzy feeling that is hard to describe. I hope you will share it with me, because if not for your designs, it could not have been done. Thanks so much.
Ps: somewhere in the upload is a picture of the envelope and back of the card, just thought you might be interested.

Making cards for the troops is such a satisfying activity. I belong to a cardmaking club that does the same thing and it is so rewarding to do something nice for all the young men and women overseas keeping us safe - many of the military are our own children or grandchildren, or they are neighbors or friends of friends. It is heartwarming to hear back from them with thanks for thinking of them and helping them be able to send beautiful messages home to their loved ones - it is also nice to hear back from them about the job they are doing 'over there' and how much good they believe they are doing. Let's all keep up the good work to help them !
