Missing "You"

Everyone knows I love making cards so my friend in Georgia always sends me lots of Whipper Snapper images colored for quick card making. It sure helps me to have them colored then all I have to do it match up the card stock and I'm in business. I try to make 100 cards a month for 'Operation Write Home' and I know that they always need cards for Miss You, Kids cards and birthday cards.
Well after making 18 cards today you can't imagine my surprise when I saw the Hero's blog challenge for 'Miss you' cards. My cheater suggestions for making these cards.........I use DCWV boxed card and envelopes that way the inside is white and the soldiers can write home on white better than colored card stock. I also try to line up my DSP an card stock to my images then sit down to make up my cards. I'm a very patriotic person and since I can't serve my country my way to 'Pay it Forward' is to make cards and support the troops overseas, I'm proud of the cards I make and send off. I use to do alot of swaps but I haven't found a good one lately so if anyone knows of one let me know, I miss the card swaps.
So for now I wish you all a very Happy New Year!

Adorable cards, and I think it is great that you send so many cards to OWH. I am sure these will be greatly appreciated! I love your view on how you CAN serve!

These cards are so cute. What a great image. Some soldier will be so grateful to have one of these to send home to a little guy they miss. Beautiful work! Happy New Year!

I love those cards! I have a son-in-law and daughter in the Army and they are currently deployed to Iraq. They love getting cards so I try to keep a good flow for them. Bless you for being part of helping soldiers know we love them.

These are so cute...and lucky you to have someone sending you a colored supply to make the cards.
I miss the card swaps too since digitals have appeared, but I like the rubber or clear stamps best.
