Operation Write Home. (Click on that link to find out more about them). I used one sheet of 12x12" cardstock for the first three sets of cards. On the first one I made the butterflies out of the scraps left over from that paper design. Also used SU's Swallowtail and Itty Bitty Banners, small butterflies were gold embossed and are by Sizzix (comes with matching framelits dies.) The second group was mostly SU stuff: paper, Upsy Daisy, Simply Sketched, and Wildflower Meadow sets. The third was a SAB paper choice from a previous year paired with the Flower Shop set on a Rose Red base. The last set of cards were from my Halloween box of partially completed cards using a variety of supplies, trying to keep all of these holiday themed cards cute and cheery and definitely not dark/scary or inappropriate for the soldiers.
