In preparation, I made a multitude of Cricut figures to make kids cards with. So that I didn't have to pack too much of my stash, I made kits of patterned paper and cardstock. I also threw in some sentiment stamps and hoped that when I got here, I would have enough to make complete cards.
I can't imagine how difficult it would be to be a parent deployed with a child or children at home. I tried to pick images that would work for both boys and girls and of multiple ages.
Sesame Street was always a winner with my kids growing up.
I also used the 6 x 6 in pad challenge for the patterned paper.
Cricut's Create a Critter is great for cute figures for younger kids.
I can only hope that one of these cards will make a child smile!!
