Cards for Missions

Hi Stamping Friends!

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I had the priviledge of attending the 15th anniversary celebration of Students International.  It's a Christian mission organization that has mission sites in Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Figi, and Costa Rica.  Our church has been partnering with them for a number of years.  Our high school and college students have the opportunity to go on a two week mission trip during the summer.  My husband has been to the Dominican Republic site and had an amazing time. 

So fast forward to the dinner/fundraiser that we attended.  I was enjoying the food, listening to students give testimonies to the awesome experience they had with SI.  Then the director's wife steps up to the mic and starts talking about how they had their first Women's Only trip to the Dominican Republic last year what an incredible experience it was and they are so excited to plan a second one for this coming February. Well... I want to go!  So I'm in the process of planning card bundles to sell to help raise funds for my trip.  Each bundle will have 5 cards and will cost $15.  I'm planning on sending out an order form to all my family and friends. 

Here's the first pack that I've designed.  This is the Birthday Boy set: 

I have the Birthday Girl set designed as well.  Hopefully I'll have time to post those tomorrow.  I hope to have a teen set, plus a set for women and one for men.  I was also thinking of doing an All-Occasion set, as well as a "Blue-Plate Special".  I'm sure my plans are bigger than my energy, but God will provide!

Of course the day would not be complete without a Christmas Jingle card.  We are getting to the end of our Christmas card parade.  
I have a couple challenges I want to partcipate in, so I should go get stamping!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
