One of my YT crafty friends, Kelly (YT: kreativecuriosities) has a son in the army, and she asked crafty friends to create cards and send along snacks for her son and the men and women who serve with him. I couldn’t think of a better project to re-jump-start my crafting after my vacation.

20150504_132626I created these four cards using pictures of my sweet Biscuit as well as three other pictures I found online.  All the pups are cute, of course, but that dog jumping into the lake looked like a flying superhero (the way the military men and women are real life heroes). 🙂

20150504_132721To give the cards a nice handmade quality, but not go crazy with embellishments (since these cards are likely to be thrown away after receipt), I cut out some die cut words of “thanks,” fussy cut out some banners using scrap card stock, and used a Marvy Uchida Paw Print Punch and an EK Tools Paw Print Edge Punch to create simple decorative elements.  I also had fun using up some red, white and blue ribbons from my stash that I tied into single, double and triple loop bows with my Craft-Dee BowZ.

The following is a video share of these cards:

These cards are being entered into the following challenges:
Craft-Dee BowZ Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow Challenge

The Pink Elephant Appreciation/Thank You Challenge

Thanks for stopping by and remember to PAWS and enjoy the journey! WOOF
