Some simple cards


I made this first card to include in care packages for the 2 Airmen that I am sponsoring who are deployed with my husband.  I kept them simple so that they would be more masculine because both of the Airmen I got are male.  I kind of liked how my wheel didn't stamp the stars perfectly - they are a little more vintage-looking because the solid part has some texture.

Not all of the Airmen that deployed are married, so if they aren't then they are given a sponsor who will send them goodies occasionally.  The two I was given say they don't need anything, so I'll be sending them some packages of blank cards to use (see the pictures below) and also some cookies and other small treats.  I hope they like what I send and can use it all!!!

Here are the note cards I sent them several of to send home to the women that they love for various occasions:
