3 cards

Hello! Since it's been so long since I posted, I have 3 cards today. ;) A girl that works with my hubby asked for a card to give to her man who will be leaving for Afghanistan soon...I made her 3. For this first one I used the Our Troops set from PinkByDesign. I did some masking of the words corps and airman to create corpsman. 
I hand cut the hearts. The papers are from the US Navy K and Company stack. Onto the next...
For this one I used the sweet heart/earth cut from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I cut the top layer out of white cardstock and used tumbled glass and broken china distress inks to custom color it. I spritzed that with perfect pearls and water in a mini mister to add shine...
I put the cut on a wobble so it wiggles. :) The sentiment is from the Ain't No Sunshine set from MarketStreetStamps. I just LOVE that font! 
For this last SUPER SIMPLE one I used the camel from the Animal Kingdom cartridge. I thought a cammo camel would be funny since he will be in camel country...ok, maybe it's just me. HA Anyhoo...his face is from the Animal Faces Medium set from PeachyKeenStamps. The sentiment is from the Just A Little Note To Say set from MyCreativeTime
