Meow, Purr, Baa - Thinking of You cards

I won the Meow, Purr, Baa stamp set from Unity Stamps a couple of weeks ago and decided that it was perfect for the Operation Write Home Sketch #258. I'm using my July Counterfeit Kit with the papers from The Paper Studio pack.

 
I stamped each image twice then colored with colored pencils and gamsol.
 
 
 
 I hand cut the banners and varied the sizes, so I didn't follow the sketch exactly. 
 
 
 I was using up some scraps of cardstock. 
 

I inked around the white mat just a little bit.

 
 
 Then stamped and matted the sentiment. 
 

All 8 cards are for Operation Write Home.  I want to make sure that everyone who does send cards to Operation Write Home their deadline for receiving them is August 1, 2015 and then they will be closing their doors.
