For Our Service Members

Hi Everyone,

Had GREAT fun with the girlfriends at my work.  We made 50+ of these "Thank You" cards to our service members.  My supporting spouse, Joe, belongs to a military group called the 2nd Indianhead Division WI/MN Association or 2IDA. They are putting together "Show You Care" packages to send over to the 2IDA troops that are currently serving in Afghanistan.  These packages contain, just to name a few things, tooth brushes, tooth paste, floss, hand sanitizer, lotions, soaps, sunflower seeds, nuts, drink packets, lemonhead candies, envelopes, paper, stamps and space pens.  These pens are AWESOME, they are what the astronauts use.  They write upside down, in extreme heat or cold and they will benefit our men and women wherever they are defending our country.

This is the card that we made and then we also had people sign and send a greeting to a service members on the inside.

We used Real Red, Night of Navy and Whisper White card stock.  The almost retired "Service & Sacrifice" set - 115992-$18.95 set of 8. We also used the Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Real Red, Night of Navy Stampin Write Markers for the American Flag, Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy ink pads for the stars and words.  Also used the Scalloped Edge Border - 119882 - $15.95.

For all their help, they received a special thank you gift and we also made this Father's Day card. 
Happy Father's Day

We also had a request from one of our guests, Joan, that we should do something cute for the woman with summer in mind and I came up with this idea using my own template of an upside down heart for the ah, um, ah - you know....LOL

Thank You to my girlfriends at work for all that you do and a BIG Thank You for ALL our Men & Women that defend our country so that we may remain FREE!

Thank you for looking,
