Mail Call

Jeanne Godbolt, a friend  from my Inky Digits Card Club asked us if we wanted to make some cards to honor local Vets.  Jeanne's Dad, Charles Baldwin is going on a flight with other Vets to Washington, DC. They will be honored there and get to tour all of the monuments in our nations Capital.  On the return home flight they have a "Mail Call" and hand out cards thanking them for their contributions to our county.

Yay, an excuse to make cards and say thanks to our Vets.  Whoo Hoo!  Vicky Lozier, Paula Butler and I got together in Paula's studio and made these cards.  Vicki pinned some patriotic cards on Pinterest and then we chose our favorites and each made one of the same card.  In all we made 15 cards to send over to the Vets.

Paula is a Stampin Up rep and had lots of punches and stamps and Vicki and I brought paper  to make the cards with.  We really had an enjoyable afternoon.  Look forward to some more crafting with friends days. I am a very lucky gal to live in a crafty community.  Myrtle Beach has so many crafty gals who love to color, cut, paste, and paint. Maybe that is why they call us "Inky Digits"!

Here's a special shout out to our very own Inky Digit Dad:
        Charlie Baldwin
Thanks for all you have done for our country!
                      We owe you, Man!
