Combat Cards for Troops - Victoria

Just a seriously quick post tonight - I've made some cards for one of my favourite charities: Combat Cards for Troops.  These are cards that are handmade, and then sent to our troops deployed overseas for them to send back to their family and loved ones. 

The first lot I made at my monthly meeting with the Diamond Valley Papercrafters.  I used Stampin' Up!'s "Mum's Love" [ret] set, Ranger Archival Ink (Watering Can) and assorted Distress Inks and Inktense pencils with a water brush...
This was just a really simple watercolouring exercise that made some very lovely, Clean and Simple cards...

Feeling inspired by my achievements at DVPC in the afternoon, I sat at my desk last night (Sat) and made all of the cards that come with Stampin' Up!'s "Tin of Cards Project Kit".
There are four different card designs in the kit with all materials (except adhesive) included.  I've modified two of the designs to specifically make them for Mother's Day, as that is the next deadline we've got for Combat Cards...
Thanks for visiting!
