New Artist Cards sent

I have been working on new designs for our contributions to Threads for Soldiers. When I think of what our military men and women have to do and what they have done in the name of freedom I envy their courage, bravery and heroic efforts they put forth and to be wounded in said duty to their country saddens me greatly.

When I visited Gabriella's blog and read what she started at the time with Crosses for Soldiers I wanted to be part of what she was doing. To let our fallen soldiers know that there are Americans at home that think of them, worry for their safety and want to bring some comfort with words of inspirations and gratitude.

Since I started making the crosses I decided I wanted them to have a piece of art from my heart in a small format with the Artist Cards that measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". I would like to think the cards will bring some small kind of comfort and that they will be carried in a pocket close to their own hearts and think someone does care for me.



These are the last creations, very easy to make, please comment if you would like instructions!
