Cards for Soldiers


Ok....here's the story: As I was multi-tasking yesterday...I have to come up with 4 techniques to show my DOLLS Club Tech for our monthly get-together....I came across this too cool technique for Faux Leather (SCS)...awesome inspiration! Soooooooo....back to the multi-task...I am also getting together card ideas to submit an article to my local newspapers about a CARDS FOR SOLDIERS program I am starting. Fort Campbell Army Base is located close by...so in an effort to support our 101st Airborne Division being deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, I am sponsoring get-togethers of stampers, scout troops, and ANY local groups wanting to participate in making cards for soldiers...to send to them overseas. If anyone would like to participate or support the cause, please email me for details.
Recipe: Stamp sets: Godspeed ( retired), Lovely as a Tree
C/S: Chocolate chip, Confetti Cream, Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow
Ink: Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, VersaMark
Accessories: Clear & Gold embossing powder
ETC: masking tape,yellow floss
****
As a side note: I REALLY wish SU had some NON-RETIRED PATRIOTIC/SHOW your Support STAMP SETS....I have had a really hard time gathering sets for this project!
OK...I'll get off the soap box now!

I can't believe Brad's turned out better than mine!!! He put it on the mantle. I guess he thinks he's a designer now. I hope he's not going to get a big "Heady" now!
