Cards for Soldiers

Last week our small group of ladies got together to stamp cards for our soldiers as usual. What wasn't usual was that right before we got to church to do this, the power went out! We decided to go with the flow and worked on the cards anyway. Let me tell you, it was quite interesting! We moved the table so that the sun was shining on it so we could see what we were doing. Sort of anyway. We weren't able to get as many cards made as usual, but we sure had fun trying! Here's one of the cards that we made that night...

Stamps: Autumn Harvest (retired) and a nonSU word stamp

Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, and Dusty Durango (retired) and Dusty Durango Pattern Designer Series Paper

Ink: Basic Brown (retired), Watercolor Crayons

Accessories: Aqua Painter, Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Dusty Durango Polka Dot Ribbon (retired)

Love all the layers on this card. Especially how they are all assymetrical. I think it makes it a little more interesting. Don't you? And yes, almost all of the supplies here are retired! You're not imagining that at all. I think this is a great way to use all my retired supplies that I can't use at my workshops anymore. 'Cuz I'm sure not going to throw them out. They're still good and I really miss some of the colors and stamp sets. So today is a short walk down memory lane just remembering some of my old favorites. I'll work on getting back on track with current products right away!

Have a lovely Sunday. Rest, relax, and rejuvenate! Spend some time with family and friends like we'll be doing later! It's the best way to spend the weekend. We're running up to Frankenmuth shortly to celebrate a few birthdays and have a yummy chicken dinner. Doesn't that sound like fun? (Happy Birthday Heather - in case you're checking this!!) Enjoy the day...
