and more Thanks!

Two more thank you cards for our Heroes! When I am in the designing mode, I always end up with extra elements -- extra images, shapes, bits of cardstock, papers, and ribbon. Mostly I set these aside probably never to use them again. This time a new challenge: Make those into cards too! So that is why I am still working on the theme of the thank you cards for Heroes.

The camo background is from a Stampendous stamp, and the netting you can guess is from produce netting (my always recycling nature), other stuff includes a Sizzix pieced flag with a bamboo skewer for a flagpole, and a cuttlebug embossed panel.

This one is simple and clean in design and makes me very satisfied to use as a thank you except that there is a "little glitter" behind the acetate window (couldn't resist) -- so I will duplicate this one sans glitter.

Stamps: Stampin' up!, Comotion; Sizzix, brads, EK Success corner punch, pop dots and a bit of ribbon.

The challenge here is to keep making cards to send to our Heroes (Operation Write Home) - and especially for our troops who are away from home during the Holidays -- let's remember to give them special attention.

Martha, what great cards! And you're right always have those scraps with good intentions to use them, so this is wonderful. Just make some cards to give to women in the military. Wanted girlie stuff, hard to do without glitter and shiny stuff, but I made some.
