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
