Valentines for Veterans

One of the local radio stations I listen to is collecting Valentines for Veterans since Feb. 10 -16 is National Hospitalized Veterans Week. So I decided to get out my new Sizzix BigShot die cut machine and scalloped heart and star die to cut a bunch of hearts and stars out in lots of colors. I was not sure what I would need, so I cut out some in pink and red and blue and yellow and camouflage. I have a lot of left overs, but they can be used another day I am sure!!

I made 5 cards addressed to A Veteran and inside wished them a Happy Valentine’s Day, thanked them for their service and wished them well. The cards were fun to make and just shows that you never know when something will come in handy. I saved a shopping bag that was in the camouflage paper, because I thought I might need it one day...and I did!

I ran all the cut out hearts and stars through my Xyron machine to turn them into stickers, placed them on the cards and then decorated them to add some punch.

 Here they are:

I could take them to a drop off site, but decied to mail them to the station, so off they go!
Happy Day Everyone!!!

What a wonderful idea! Your cards are perfect and I'm sure ANY veteran would be touched to receive one.
Can anyone send them there? I might be interested.

The link in the post should take you to the radio station and all the information, including an address to mail your cards to. I put my five in unsealed envelopes and then into a 6" x 9" envelope and mailed it to the station. I think they need to arrive by Feb. 10.
