Military Cards

Hi friends!  I know it's been awhile but as you can see, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.  I don't know about you, but for me, stamping and crafting is my "me" time.  Time for me to forget about everything else and be creative.

My church is getting ready for their annual mission weekend where they have speakers from local and global missions and ways for the congregation to get involved with such work.  One of the projects for the weekend is to make cards for deployed military.  For some reason, when the masses think of "deployed military" they always go on about "soldiers."  Well, if you ask a "sailor" if they are a "soldier," look out!  Being a Navy wife I guess I think about these things.  So, for deployed soldiers AND sailors we are making cards.  I volunteered to help when I heard about this card making mission.  I picked up the supplies at the church this morning and played around with my personal stash and have come up with the following.  I just hope those in heading up this project like them.

Stamps:  Define Your Life, Thoughts and Prayers
Ink:  Night of Navy, Real Red
Cardstock:  Real Red, Whisper White, Night of Navy
Misc:  Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon, scallop oval punch, large and small star punch, real red 1/4" grosgrain, real red striped grosgrain, Sizzix Stampin' Up! Timeless Type Junior Alphabet

What an awesome company!

The devestation is Haiti is unimaginable.  We have all been touched in someway over the past 2 weeks as we watch the new reports coming from the area.  In an effort to help the victims, Stampin' Up! is doing the following:

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. To help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this devastating earthquake, Stampin′ Up! will set aside $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and donate it to the American Red Cross.

Help to make a difference. Order your I {Heart} Hearts stamp set today!
