Honor Flight Thank you cards

Our friends Uncle Ed's was in the army a LONG time ago, and is going on the Honor flight November 5th to DC.
Our friends are having a "Welcome Home" party, and asked invitee's to write a letter or card of thanks!
I mentioned this to my friend Maggi, who has been SO generous with making Cards for the Troops, and she offered to make a few! WOW. 15! The girl is a machine I swear! But her designs are anything but! Beautiful, beautiful work! A simple, yet elegant style. One I don't share! I tried, I REALLY tried! But in the end, the 'other Jan' came out and did her thing! So all in all, between Maggi and I, we made 25 cards!

Below are Maggi's, the Spellbinder Queen! I LOVE the Old Jalopy! My personal Favorite!

See, what did I tell you! LOVE that CARD!!

And my designs are below!

As you can see, I was able to work quite a bit of Tim Holtz' dies and texture fades into my designs!
My favorite? The Angel Wings card using a newer Sizzix die.

Love your cards - such a creative use of the wings and umbrella man dies. I was happy to help out. Please share pics of the festivities.
