We're thankful for our missionaries

It’s Thursday and I’m a month behind with Sale-A-Bration already. I do have two cards to post for you today. Last Monday night, a group of ladies from my church met to make cards for our missionary families. We needed 21 sets of 4 so each family could have 4 cards – we got 20 sets done!! Took about an hour and a half – they were real troupers too! I had everything cut and sized, had all the accessories, punches, inks, dimensionals, etc., prepped as well. Then I needed to have a sample card and instructions for each table. All that took almost 2 days to prep and we got it all done! I’m so proud of those ladies! Several of them had never been to a Stamp Camp before.
These two are just samples. We used 4 different stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has offered over the years and that contain the phrases, “Best Wishes”, “Get Well”, Thank You” and “Happy Birthday”. We wanted consistency for each set as far as font and color, but the ladies were free to adjust or move or add to the elements on the cards. As a surprise for their hard work, I had a separate table for a Make-and-Take Valentine card, but, because of time constraints, I went ahead and made up some of them for the gals who had to scoot early. Unfortunately, I don’t have a sample of the Valentine Card but it does use this year’s Occasions I {heart} Hearts stamp set, the Curly Label with Heart Big Shot Die, and this year’s Sending Love DSP. The cards were stinkin’ CUTE!!! Stampin’ Up! goes all out to ensure our products are all color-coordinated. You simply can’t make a misteak even if you tried!! HA!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
