Honor Flight Card October 2018


Our team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators called the Song of My Heart Stampers headed up by Lyssa Zwolanek and based in Watertown, WI has been providing cards for the Badger Honor Flights from Madison and Milwaukee, WI for the past many years. Kathy Van Duser brought this worthy cause to our group and heads up the project every month. This month we decided to do a work night instead of holding a team meeting. Several of us prepped cards and brought them for everyone to put together. The card is based on a design I saw on Pinterest, but I changed some things up to use products that I had on hand. Take a look at the supply list and the step by step instructions.
