Cards for a Cause Part 3

Thinking of you Challenge - only embellishment can use is ribbon. This card is being sent to a solider in a combat hospital that is recovering from their injuries.
Get Well Challenge - This card is being sent to a solider in a combat hospital to help cheer them up. The bees in the corners are stickers that I had forever and the image in the middle is from SU Farm Fever stamp set.
Thinking of you - I made this card originally to send to a solider in a combat hospital but it is very girlie and the cards need to be non-gender specific. But I can't help myself for some reason this stamp yells Girlie and Pink to me (see card below) I made another card with this image and I used pink and browns again without thinking. Only think different besides the color scheme so I could send it to the troops would be I would move the verse thinking of you over more to the left. The image I received from WishRak.
Get Well Challenge - Image is from WishRak. The layout of the card is from Taylored Expressions sketch challenge #26
Pattern Paper is from my stash. Image is from WishRak
Patriotic Thank you Challenge - This challenge was to make a patriotic thank you card for one our soldiers and inside you write a personal message thanking them for what they do. I love this idea, it's not every day we get to thank them for what they do for us. The Paper is from DCWV Summer Paper Packet. The flag in the bears hand is actually a sticker I had. The bear is from SU My Favorite Teddy set and the thank you verse is from SU Lots of Thoughts

It's such an honor to make these cards for our troops overseas to send back home to their love ones and to the troops in the combat hospitals.

These cards are fabulous Chrissy and it is so nice of you to make them so selflessly.

I know first hand how lonely it can get for serving members deployed.
