Military Appreciation cards

I left a blurb on my post yesterday about an ongoing Military Appreciation going on over at Paper Patch Crafts Facebook pages.  It's not too late to do something special for our soldiers.  Please read all about it over here.  She is still taking cards and it's a good way to feel like you are helping in some small way.

Here are the 4 cards I completed!

I used the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge and Spellbinders Fancy tags.  The paper is K & Company as well as scraps I had laying around.

This is a stamp I created for a company and now am not sure which one!  It was either Alota Rubber Stamps or Biblical Impressions...and I can't find it at either store now so maybe they have discontinued it.  I colored it with watercolor pencils and then blended them with Dove Colorless blender pen.

How can you resist a little pirate humor?  Be sure to use your pirate voice when you read the card front and inside!  I used the Create a Critter Cricut Cart (say that 3 times fast) and my silly sense of humor for the rest.

My last card was made with the Simply Sweet Cricut Cart for the stars.  The lettering is a from a packet of letterings I bought at Walmart some years ago and have no clue what the brand was.  The star trails were added with the I-Rock tool.  Pretty fun.   And there you have it!

Thank you for posting these. My husband is in the Air Force and was disappointed that Armed Forces Day seemed to take a backseat to the rapture.

All your cards are great. Too hard to pick a favorite. I like the frame on the first one, the splattered look on the second, the pirate's sentiment, and the colors on the last. They are ALL fabulous!
