10 "Greetings from TEXAS" hero cards for OWH

Today I went into the garage and went digging through some boxes. I marked boxes very well, so I didn't have to go through all the boxes, I just needed to find the ones I wanted. I was looking for some Army/Airborne/Engineer stamps and the first box marked "stamp sets" they happened to be in.. yeah!!!

After dinner I cut out 30 Texas shapes and shadows using my Cricut set to 1 1/2".

I changed these cards some from the one the other night.. made the card base More Mustard because I had only three sheets of Cajun Craze left... cut out the Texas shapes using Crumb Cake card stock and layered them onto black card stock.

I used some stars I got at Michael's this past week.. and I sponged every layer.

These will have notes written inside each one for a Hero that is deployed, I will then send them to Operation Write Home.

Here's my messy grid paper after all that sponging... you should see my fingers.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

I love how you punched the holes in "Texas" so that the black paper shows through. Very clever. :)
