Thank you for our troops

I will be helping a wonderful 501(c) 3 Non-Profit Organizaton called Humble Hearts For Hope, Inc. at their first annual youth camp in May.  This camp is open to children in 6th to 11th grade and is a great service opportunity for those attending to help assist miliitary deployed soldiers.  The activity I will be involved in is helping the children make thank you and thinking of you cards for the troops, as well as birthday cards they can use to send home to their loved ones, and post cards where the children will write their own personal message. 

One of the cards I designed for the children to make is the above thank you card.  It uses the Hero Jumbo Wheel for the message at the bottom, as well as the flag and stars from the Service & Sacrifice Stamp Set.  The red embossed Thanks is from a retired Embosslits Die that unfortunately does not show up in the picture as well as it does on the actual card.  I added some additional strips of Real Red cardstock to highlight the words of the Hero Wheel. 

I am sure the troops will really appreciate these cards from the children, and I am really honored to be helping such a good cause.  If you would like to learn more about this organization you can go to their website at and read about all of the wonderful things they are doing for our troops.

The following supplies were used:
Cardstock:  Whisper White #100730, Real Red #102482
Stamp Set:  Service & Sacrifice #115992
Jumbo Wheel:  Hero #116229
Ink:  Night of Navy #102977   Markers:  Night of Navy #100069, Real Red #100052 (for the flag)
