Cards for Jennifer

PhotobucketMy granddaughter, Jennifer, left last week for Basic Military Training in San Antonio, Texas.  She'll be there for 8 1/2 weeks.  I've been really focused lately on missing her and wondering how she's doing.  We have a special connection and I've been wanting her to know that I'm thinking of her.  So, I decided to make cards, LOTS OF CARDS, to send to her every day.  Here are some samples of my creations for her.  I hope they lift her spirits in what I know is an intense and changing time in her life.  I love you Jen!!!

Cocoa & Marshmallows

I had fun today all by myself working away in my craft room.  The chef from SU's Voila' stamp set is on the cover of this card.  It took me 3 tries but I finally came up with a design I liked.  I pieced the coat, pants and hat for the chef.  I outlined the whole image with my black marker.  I knew I wanted to use mini marshmallows to put in the Sweet Treat Cup.  How cute is that!  I used Crushed Curry and Riding Hood Red cardstock.  The saying is from a retired set called, Yummy for the Tummy.  On the inside I attached a decadent package of cocoa mix with red sticky tape at the top.  I would love to send this card to anyone who needs a special pick-me-up.  How about you!!!!
