My last two for the week...

Here are my last two cards for the week. Just to clear things up, I didn't make all these cards this week. I made them in June for Cards for Soldiers-we have a get together every June to make cards for our soldiers to send to their families and I make sure they get mailed out to the shippers so they can get them out to the different deployed soldiers. 

My first card is like the camera one from yesterday. Just plan and simple is what I went with this year so I could get many made. I think we did get around 500 cards made to go to the soldiers! It was a productive day by all the ladies! We had a great time talking and socializing as well as doing something good. We even got cards done for the Ronald McDonald house. The phone and sentiment is from My Creative Time products, love Emma's products! For my second card, The arrow and sentiment also came from MCT products. The heart was a punch I used that is from SU. I think it was a punch, could have been a die-not sure now. lol  Anyway these are some cards-well I will make more-that I plan on using to send to DS will he is away at college. I will probably put some cash in there for him here and there too. I hope you have enjoyed these simple and plain cards. I've enjoyed sharing them with you. Now I need to get my butt in gear in the kitchen and laundry. lol Such an exotic life I lead. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by yet another day! I appreciate you all and you always put a smile on my face when I read your comments. Have a wonderful weekend starting tomorrow-Crafty hugs, Brenda

Both are so cute! Love the simplicity of these and no matter when you made them I'm glad we're getting to see them now. You son will love getting cards in the mail.....and especially with the cash involved! LOL! I have a feeling he'll love getting them anyway though.

Great job on your soldier cards! Those little phones are sure to remind some deployed soldier of home - how cute! I love the arrow pointing to the heart on the 2nd one, and how clever to use that sentiment too! Great job on these, and it sounds like you ladies all had a fun time together! Now, back to your beyond exotic life......(cough cough)

Another great job of lining up those phones! I guess the kids now days don't even recognize them as phones! And I really love the second card! So sweet!

You are so generous and kind to make these cards for the services and the RMH, Brenda. That's so kind. I love that they are also perfect as cards to send to your DS while the both of you are adjusting to him being away at college! They are both fabulous!! Have a great Sunday! Hugs, Darnell

First, these are perfect cards for OWH. The image (punch or stamp!) with the just-right sentiment. Sure to be appreciated by someone who is far from loved ones. I like your style with these cards. Very clean, but still a lot of pops of color. Each one is a treasure. Proud of you for your skill and your giving heart. TFS & Hugs

These are perfect to send to the Armed Forces. I hear you about sending to your son in college. I need to get started on mine to send to grandson. It's nice for them to get mail from home and they can always use pizza money!
