A couple of these cards(the flag and fireworks) are from a batch that I made to get to someone who delivers thank you cards to our military folks overseas. And with what has recently happened in Lybia, it appears that we'll need a lot more of them. I had been thinking that our military folks would be coming home from Iraq soon. But now it looks as though there is another place to send them! I have a grandson in the Marines, and a couple of friends in the army and I live in a town with an Air Force base. So I am sure that there will be a real need for our continued support. If you know someone who's over there, let them know you care about their sacrifice. And the spouses and children at home too. See if there is something you can do for them. There are a lot of military families who may have a need that you could fill.
But if you can't provide a service... just say a simple prayer. That will be a great help too.

The long card is for my adopted grand-daughter. When she got her braces on her mom wanted her to know that she knew it would be hard. So she got these cute stickers, and I made her a card.
I never know how the pix will load, so they are all out of order. The card with the truck is a birthday card for a friend this month. It's a new stamp set from Stampin' Up. I love it. There's a wooden wheelbarrow, a rooster, an apple and an old fashioned pump with a wooden bucket. Very rustic. My son's both love old trucks, and are both 'country boys'. And one of them has Chickens, so this set is perfect for cards and layouts for them, and most of the other guys I know.
Well, I'll get this up while I can. (I've only been editing it for a week!) I hope all is well with y'all.
Take care
